    I have been working at RPh on the GO full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    In my short time there I really feel like part of the team. You will never be bored here. The work is rewarding. The more you put in the more you get out. You will work closely with fellow co workers who are extremely helpful.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. I have a little experience and I know one thing, I'm glad I accepted the position.

    Advice to Management

    Can't give any advice. Everyone rolls up their sleeves and does the work.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great People and a Great office! I love working here! It is a tough job and I spent a lot of hours learning the job and putting in a lot of overtime to get ahead but it was worth it. No one is going to hold your hand and make you successful here but you! You can build your own book of business here and develop customers that will work with you for years. The benefits are great. You start earning...

    This is a tough job and you need to be dedicated and work hard to get what you want from this position. You need to be able to recruit and sell at a high level to be successful here. If you work hard and put in the extra effort to get ahead you can and will be successful here. It took me a few years to get to the level that I wanted to be at but I learned to ask for help and followed the advice from people that were...

    Management is great and wants everyone to succeed. I think sometimes they are too nice waiting for people to develop and succeed.

    Pros

    I have been working with RPh on the go for over 10 years and I can honestly say RPH on the go is a great place to work. You must work hard, nothing comes easy that is for sure. But believe me when I tell you if you work hard and do things the right way, you will enjoy the benefits.

    I have been working at RPh on the GO full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    RPh on the Go is a long-standing, well-founded company, with a strong support system from its parent company, Adecco. The office is centrally-located, just off the Blue Line, Cumberland, and 90. The building is top-notch, with a fitness facility, cafe, lobby pop-up vendors, appreciation lunches, easy parking, and more. But most importantly, I love the office atmosphere and the people with whom I work. We...

    Pharmacy recruiting is not easy and not for everyone. It's hard work, but we've put a good team in place to work together and support each other.

    Pros

    Nice office. Most of the people are nice. Benefit package is good.

    Cons

    It’s kind of weird. It looks like a great office. It’s new and clean. It looks like the company is invested in the office. But the company doesn’t invest in the important things like training or a marketing expert or a good manager. Our poor web site has been orphaned. Most of the information on it is completely outdated. It says that we work with 4 out of the 5 largest retail chains. Not true. We no longer work...

    I worked at RPh on the GO full-time

    Pros

    Solid location. Right off the blue line. They have a gym in the building in which some people use during lunch. They are a branch of Adecco, which is a billion dollar, global company, so you get a lot of access to resources and such. There are some genuine people that work there, and the team leads can be good people to leverage. The sales support team are a great resource, and HR from corporate that sits on site is...

    Cons

    Honestly the one bad con is the manager. I never advocate for someone losing their job but a change has to be made. He avoids his team when he comes in and leaves. Will never give you feedback on how you are doing until his back is against the wall. Has clear cut favorites which creates a negative atmosphere in the office. No real training, especially on the sales side, so be mentally prepared to figure it out yourself....

    Don't play favorites, train the manager to be competent.

    Pros

    For the most the people that work there are friendly.

    Cons

    DISCLAIMER, in the next 24 hours it will be at least one good review to overshadow this one in order for the company to maintain its to good to be true rating. The director is going to tell you to take the bad reviews "literally not seriously" and remind you that the people that wrote the reviews are no longer working for the company and make it seem as if individuals could not handle the work. In previous reviews people...

    Pros

    I've worked with this company for over 5 years now. It takes a lot of hard work to be here, which everyone is told multiple times during their interviews and their tenure with the company. We rarely rest! It's been very disappointing, recently, to see disgruntled former employees tear down a company that I've put years into, and believe in. Nothing is handed to anyone here. All of the successful people here have been...

    Cons

    This job isn't for everyone. Hard work, long hours, and failure are part of the process and the job. It's not always great, and it's not perfect. You have to be your own advocate and ask questions. We help each other to succeed here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being supportive and giving your all. We know what you do for us and we appreciate that you have our backs. We have yours, too!

    I worked at RPh on the GO full-time

    Pros

    There are some great individuals that work here and many that have left. There is potential (if you work hard) and would be even better if some processes would be improved to enable employees to be truly successful.

    Cons

    - There are approximately 5 employees (including management) that account for about 80-90% of the business. The remainder of the 20+ employees are left all picking up the scraps. - Some employees will give “friends” priority on a job before it goes out to the team or they may push their own candidate over yours (to get both sides of the commission) so if you are not in the inner circle, it will be harder to make money....

    Advice to Management

    - Consider leadership where management does not run their own sales desk. When management is responsible for both sales AND developing a team of 20+ people, one or both suffers. Change structure where management is compensated off how well the team performs instead of personal sales because if the team wins, the company wins too. - Be realistic with new employees about the earning potential because it is a rough wage...
