The Johns Hopkins outpatient pharmacies offer the ability for a pharmacy technician to learn and grow outside of your typical retail pharmacy environment. Typical work day is fast paced and busy, one would need to like working at that pace in order to enjoy working for this company.
Management team is supportive of the needs from their staff and actively listen to their teams issues or concerns, always looking for ways to improve the system. Your co-workers are helpful when you ask questions and they provide standard operating procedures for all processes in the event you have a question. They really put in a lot of effort to equip you with the tools you need to get the job done.
The most enjoyable part about this job is truly being able to help patients. If you have a love for helping people, this is the place for you. The Outpatient Pharmacies allow you to work with patients from various backgrounds and be that final caring face they see before they leave the hospital.
great benefits, discount on prescription medications, flexible hours
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Baltimore,MD – May 16, 2014
What can I say about this place? For starters I was trained one way for 6 weeks and then when I went to my actual site was given bad reviews because I was expected to do it a different way from what I was trained by the Technician Trainer. Pharmacy Technicians are not allowed to reconstitute suspensions or do any non-sterile compounding. Your job duties depends on which pharmacist is working because there is no protocol in place for day to day activities. This place was so unorganized and management very sneaky. Whats the point of having good health insurance if you never have time to use it? Great place to have on your resume!
excellent health insurance, having jhh on your resume looks great!
The company continues to grow rapidly, however employment does not (where it is greatly needed). All in all, it's a good place to work with good benefits, however there is not a retirement program (other than the 403B)
Service Specialist 2 (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – March 24, 2013
A day at work is safety first ,being i do alot of driving & delivery critacal product like medication & a mistake can cost someone their life. I learned that life is precious & fragile seeing alot of ill people i appreciate family,friends,& good health. I dont let much stress me & dont hold gruges from one moment to the next,eat well & exercise. Management do their job well means job sercurity for my co workers & i. hardest part of the job is going in to dirty homes. The most enjoyable part is a mix between being in the field vs being inside all day & helping people.
Summer Hire Assistant (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 23, 2014
I worked in several different departments during my time here as a summer hire, and so it is difficult to say what a typical day would include. I learned many different skill sets that have helped me in other jobs as well. The management was wonderful and everyone was inviting. I absolutely loved the time I spent working here.
