I was technically a photo lab technician but did several other things at this job. Sometimes I would be on the floor setting up displays. Others I would be on the cash register. Others I would be in the back doing inventory. I really liked that I got to see most aspects of this job.
Every day is different. some times we need to prepare reports, complete trainings, work with the finances, work with the inventory. some days qe do receiving merchandise; updating pricess, re-stock the store, etc. the ones that are bilingual provide translating services to our customers. We give advise on the medicine and its effects.
The fun part is working with the customers, because I love working with people.
The hardest part is when we receive new merchandise.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – August 22, 2016
the typical workday was very stressful. the outcome of your day was always dependent on the experience of your co-workers and the amount of help hours that ytou had for the day. Management was not caring at all and only cared about the numbers. The most enjoyable part of the job was caring for the customers.
Pharmacy Advisor (Former Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – August 22, 2016
I had a great Supervisor and District Manager but when you're no longer happy with your job because you have not gotten a pay raise, then it's time to go look for another place to work at. But overall, I loved working there, the Pharmacists and the other staff are very nice and accommodating according to your needs.
Regional Learning Center Coordinator (Former Employee) – Largo, MD – August 22, 2016
My opinion about this particular job was a good one. It was challenging because I had to complete the hire process for new employees as well as teach them, train them and provide a test towards the end of class. Dealing with this position, you tend to meet all kind of people who have some learning challenges and at times, class was longer bc some couldn't comprehend what was taught.. I had to prepare for class by printing books for every student and creating a folder for them which was tedious
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 20, 2016
This company does not pay its employees nearly enough. You must maintain at the very minimum 30 hours to even qualify for benefits. Corporate does not side with its employees about difficult customers but instead rewards abusive behavior with gift cards and apologies. There is not enough coverage on shifts. And your safety is not guaranteed.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Pennsylvania – August 19, 2016
Store level is very stressful. Lack of hours, understaffed and underpaid for the work load expected. Seems like upper management (DM) and higher only really care about their bonuses and not what is needed at store levels to make a functional business. Customers are mostly happy but you will get ones that are not happy especially in the pharmacy, which is not their fault a lot of the time. reasons could be insurance issues to script failed to be called in. other times it could be due to under staffing to the workload is to much to make the deadlines and fill times. i would not recommend this company for long term employment unless you are determined to move up in the company and then you have to wait for that positions to open up.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Attica, IN – August 19, 2016
A typical day included data entry and filling prescriptions. There were always different issues to handle daily as they came up. I enjoyed helping customers either with their insurance or doctor issues, and being able to save them money on their prescriptions.
The Pharmacists that I worked with were very helpful with problems and with helping the Technician if they needed it. They were very good at explaining whatever we may have questions about and not talking down to the Techs. Good management at the store I worked at.
Flexibility with hours if we needed it, good teamwork, caring about patients and employees.
Sometimes short-staffed which made it very stressful. They stopped giving short breaks, lunch only, but breaks are needed when you're on your feet 8-9 hours daily.
