Family owned chain in Puget Sound
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 5, 2017
As it is normal in retail, expect to work 8 to 12 hr shifts with no lunch or breaks (there is hardly any overlap) plus every other weekend. Most hours are 8am to 10+pm M-F, 9am to 6+pm Sat/Sun.This company has strict uniform and company rules. Salaries are a bit below the norm for retail. 401K company contribution is about 2%. They restrict to 9% of annual salary (not 15%) what you can put on your own 401K if you are a pharmacist. They offer group insurance (health, dental, life, etc), disability, vacation, sick leave (2 days or so). No tuition reimbursement. The hardest part of the job is being able to achieve all that is expected of you - they keep adding more & more. The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with. Most employees, peers, and managers are wonderful individuals who are professional and devoted. They do incentive programs/contests here and there as rewards. They do not offer a yearly bonus to all employees, but they have a bonus program for managers if they meet budget goals.
Fun coworkers, dedicated and hardworking along with loyal customers
