Not a good place to work!
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 23, 2017
My experience at Banner was not good. I was hired to supervise, but never received adequate training, such as workflow, 20 different systems, layout of the hospital etc. I was expected to seek out training myself. I did get 1 week of management training that promoted "feel good" emotions, but I was dropped into a snake pit full of terrible gossip, constant call outs, back-stabbing colleagues. I was expected to put in 50-60 hours a week, be on call 24 hrs/day for sometimes 2 weeks at a time with NO COMPENSATION. I was also expected to "fill in" as needed, which then became an insane mess of working shifts because of the constant short staffing/revolving door, and then do administrative duties (for which I was told I was hired: bait and switch tactics). After developing a major issue with insomnia, I crashed. I was then "managed out" and transferred to the corporate environment, where things changed on nearly a daily basis. My manager was very inexperienced in the pharmacy world, and kept saying that this was a start up program. She also said I wasn't a good fit for Banner. Your work ethic, and experience in the field don't matter; this is a popularity contest. I have now taken another position at another health system.
Terrible management, worse working conditions
