    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate/Cashier in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Pharmaca part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great co-wrokers, fun environment, great music, great learning of products, great manager.

    Cons

    You will have to do the job of receiver and trash person. You will be asked to work long shifts and late shifts. You will be asked to wheel a massive plastic bin of the receiving materials (that you did not receive because you were not hired as a receiver) as well as trash 2 blocks away through the Trader Joe's parking lot up a ramp. You will be asked to mop floors and clean toilets. In addition to all of this, you will be asked to do the job of loss prevention and try to stop thieves while also trying to help customers as this is their highest theft store.

    I worked at Pharmaca full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice customers and products. good relationship with other employess. Employee discount. Good job for dishonest managers and managing practices and an HR that supports them.

    Cons

    Poor stff morale. Manager is dishonest and has the HR people fooled or HR doesn't even care because the store makes money. . Manager lies about personal schedule--uses work time for persoanl leave regularly and cripples the the store and loyal customers with short-staff on the floor. Don't even bother winning employee competitions for money or prizes--the manager keeps and takes all fo the credit anyway. Manager disregards federal scheduling regulations (the law) to notify employess about schedule changes and also schedules people with less than 12 hours between shifts. Professional employees are paid the same as local carwashes and grocery store wwith little ability to progress as managers hire outside rather than promote from within.
