    I worked at Shoppers Food & Pharmacy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great communication with district pharmacy manager and higher ups. Proactive with public awareness regarding immunizations and diabetes. MTM services.

    Cons

    Not easy to find coverage if sick or children are sick. Floater scheduler didn't schedule very far in advance (usually no more than 2 weeks). There were times that I was the only person in the pharmacy and as a nursing mother, this made it very difficult to service clients. The company may be a sinking ship.
