A professional work setting with responsibility
Entry-Level Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Bay City, MIOctober 6, 2014
Pros: the knowledge i took with me
Cons: the occasional unhappy customer
The job was very fast paced while most things took time to solve. Customers would become impatient but you had to find a way to keep them calm and explain what was going on which was a challenge I was willing to take. Co-workers were fantastic in helping with questions and teaching the correct way to do things. The hardest part of the job was certainly – more... keeping customers level headed with patience while on the phone with their insurance companies. The most enjoyable part of the job was the multitasking with the amount of brain power and customer service you were exuding all at once. – less

Fast moving pharmacy with encouraging coworkers
Level 3 Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Lenox, MIJuly 8, 2014
A normal day at work included, typing prescriptions, working with patients to get the most cost effective educations for them, working with insurance companies to complete prior authorizations, and keeping quality inventory in stock for patients. My job was very fast moving and somewhat rewarding. The hardest part of the job was not being able to help – more... the elderly patients reduce the cost of their very expensive medication. Even after every option they still had to pay high amounts for the medications they needed. The most enjoyable part was being able to help patients get what they needed and them being happy with my work. – less

Fulfilling job, coworkers awesome.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Muskegon, MIJune 26, 2014
Pros: patients and coworkers.
Cons: the really busy days and not enough help
Waiting on patients, filling scripts, inputting scripts, inputting ins. info. troubleshooting ins. info. I learned a lot about adding ins. and solving ins. issues for patients. The management was good. Loved working with my coworkers, they were the best. Hardest part was keeping up with the 600 plus script days. But those days went really fast. Most – more... enjoyable was helping the patients and interacting with them, many long time patients are sorely missed now. – less

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

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.

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
