Good place to work, great people!
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Anderson, INFebruary 20, 2015
Meijer Pharmacy was a great place to work. I worked part time while going to school. Great atmosphere to work in! You could work part time or full time. The resident pharmacists were very professional and put the emphasis on overall customer satisfaction.

Fun place to work
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Louisville, KYFebruary 18, 2015
Pros: able to leave when you need to ( to get water, food, shop, or bathroom breaks) and willing to work around your schedule
Cons: i'm only part-time so, i receive no benefits, low pay, and not enough hours
Meijer Pharmacy is a great place to work. Co-workers for the most part are easy to get along with and are willing to help when needed. This is a job where are always learning something new about medications, or about the job in general.

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Jeffersonville, INJanuary 26, 2015
I arrive to work about 30 minutes early to start running out prescriptions and count them. This work environment takes a lot of teamwork to complete daily activities. The co workers are great for the most part, some do not perform at their highest so others have to pick up their slack. I love the patients.

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Dayton, OHJanuary 19, 2015
I worked at Meijer off and on for years. I appreciate the values that the company stands for, and the open door policy when it comes to the company's money and plans. The customers was the best part. Working in the pharmacy you meet a lot of different people, all with different problems. It was nice to be able to be a part of making their lives better.

Fast paced, multitasking environment
Pharmacist Technician (Current Employee), Battle Creek, MINovember 23, 2014
Pros: weekly pay schedule, benefits, opportunity for advancement
Cons: being in such a crammed area with several people trying to multitask at once
A typical day at work usually consist getting all EPS and computers up and running, emptying trash cans, stocking supplies, and stocking cash drawers. Upon opening, there is usually a line at the pick up and drop off windows (sometimes the drive thru also) so I begin to assist customers as needed, and on my down time there I usually go to the counting station, do return to stock, or unpack and scan in the shipments from our Central Fill Office. We rotate stations every 2 hours (Will Calls 1 & 2, Fill Station, Primary Processor, Secondary Processor, and Drive Thru). The duties I just performed are Will Calls 1 & 2, Fill Station and Drive Thru.

From there I usually go to Fill Station where I count and verify medications. At times I am required to partial the meds because of shortage in stock, at which time I am required to figure enough dosage for a 5 day supply. If NDCs don't match I have to make the proper changes using the computer system. I also answer the phone and assist customers, doctors, insurance companies and medical facilities as needed.

After my 2 hours there I go to Secondary Processor and begin to process prescriptions, communicate with insurance companies, customers and medical facilities to verify medications, dosages and instructions. I scan in prescriptions and match the proper NDCs.

Finally I return to either Will Call 1 or 2 or Drive Thru and end my shift there.

During a normal shift team work and communication are essential to doing our jobs to the best of our ability to satisfy the customers. Management is always near by to assist as needed, and supervise.

The hardest part of this job can sometimes be dealing with difficult personalities, and the most enjoyable part of this job is knowing at the end of the day I have helped someone, some family get through a rough time.

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 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.

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 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.

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 enjoyable was helping the patients and interacting with them, many long time patients are sorely missed now.
