Very busy work, upper management is terrible, little realistic job advancement
Pharmacy Manager/Pharmacist (Former Employee) – NJ – February 18, 2017
If you work with a good team and you love dealing with customers this is a very nice job to have. Definitely very busy place to work, especially if you work at a busy store. Long hours and no breaks for pharmacists at all. Techs do get breaks but not compensated nearly enough for the amount of work and responsibilities cast upon them. Of course, constantly understaffed. I can't stress efficiency enough. Whatever you do, it is never ever enough for upper management (experience could be different if you have a nice manager, but that's extremely rare). People are very replaceable, and they won't hesitate to remove you at all. Just don't be sad or suprise when it happens.
Nice 401k match. Slow build up on vacation days, poor health insurance (patient saving plans), stock option plan...
Overall, if you love your team you deal with daily and love the fast work, and most of all, the customers.... then this is not that bad of a position
insurance coverage, no breaks for pharmacist, terrible upper management
