Pros: Getting a chance to learn hands on what I had spent time in school studying
Cons: Short term. Didn't feel as if I had enough hands on at that point.
I learned the basics of customer service and HIPAA privacy. I learned how to do out of dates and return medications that were expired right away. CVS had a counting machine, which I don't use at my current job, we use trays and count pills individually. I learned how to work a drive through service and what retail meant. That you helped the entire store. I learned how to stand on my feet in one spot all day, which is also different from my current retail pharmacy job where I am constantly moving all over and multi-tasking. I don't think this position was very hard other than it seemed to go by very slow, but I like helping my patients and was just learning the ropes.
