Easy-going work atmosphere.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Oxford, MIOctober 10, 2013
My overall work experience at Meijer Pharmacy has been pleasant. My co-workers are very easy-going and fun to be around. With that, it make working more enjoyable and less stressful at the end of the day.

The head Pharmacist are willing to help you out when you have a question and I have never felt intimidated by them; always felt welcome.

The hardest – more... part of the job is working with the grumpy customers and/or the customer service aspect of the job. Sometimes, no matter what you do, you will always have a grumpy customer even if you give them coupons towards their next order. But in the end, having awesome co-workers makes the job very, very enjoyable. – less

It was ok.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Saginaw, MISeptember 16, 2013
A very fast paced environment I learned that in a pharmacy cant make any mistakes. My co-workers were kind of distant. The hardest part was communication. What I enjoyed the most was the environment.

Pharmacy Technician II (Former Employee), Westland, MIJune 10, 2013
This was a nice company to work for. Being in the pharmacy, you are isolated from a lot of the normal business happenings. The pharmacy was a great place to be. I enjoyed my time there.

An ethical workplace
Certified Pharmacy Technician, CPhT. (Current Employee), Rochester Hills, MIMay 28, 2013
I've learned the ins and outs of good pharmacy practice, but I've also learned something about myself; I do not just care for patients- I care about them too. My boss is wonderful and takes the time to teach me about drug interactions, ethical issues, and communication and leadership techniques.

Great Place to work... limited pay.
Level III Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Waterford, MIMay 5, 2013
Pros: co-workers that come together forming a strong team.
Cons: pay could be better.
I love working at Meijer Pharmacy! However, I need better pay and Meijer is very limited on the pay they offer to pharmacy employees. At times the job can be quite stressful and requires strong trouble shooting, excellent customer service skills, and occasionally a lot of patience. I enjoy the fast paced work day I often experience, I love working with – more... the public, and my co-workers are awesome at working as a team. Management is great at maintaining a positive and safe environment. This job provides lots of experience in working to serve people from all walks of life. Working at Meijer pharmacy is very goal oriented, challenging, and exciting. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Midland, MIJanuary 14, 2013
Pros: friendly co-workers and managers
Cons: unable to take breaks because there were so many prescriptions to fill
Working for Meijer pharmacy you have a very fast paced work enviroment filled with stress if you are unable to handle it. Other employees are very kind and willing to help others when and if its needed. The hardist thing about the job was what I liked the most, it was no-stop during your whole shift. Everyday you were answering phones calls, having – more... to call insurances and doctor offices, counting medication, waiting on customers, working the register, billing insurances, and stocking medications. – less

Stressful work enviorment
Pharmacy Technician, Level 2 (Current Employee), Southgate, MIOctober 21, 2012
Pros: good hours, steady paycheck, benefits
Cons: hostile work enviorment
With my time spent at Meijer I've learned alot about the skills you need to be very well trained in customer service. I've learned alot about working in a pharmacy and the amount of knowledge you need to have to succeed while working in one. Although I do value my job very much I know there is not room to expand and make a life long career working there. – more... I have enjoyed most of my coworkers, but do not always agree with how things are handled or how employees are treated there. The hardest part of my job would have to be dealing with difficult customers while maintaining a proffessional attitude. While I have valued my job with Meijer Pharmacy and I am thankful for the opportunity to learn that field I know I cannot start planning a future while working there. – less

Everyone is very friendly and always puts customers first. Meijer has many sponsors and promotions.
