Not terrible all the time, but could be a lot better
Technician (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – July 20, 2016
Consistency is something that barely exists. Management tries to make improvements, but seem to be complacent with mediocrity both from all employees and themselves. I know I do not want to do this job, or work in this environment the rest of my life. Technicians are criticized most often than praised for the jobs they do. Things would be so much worse if the hard working & dedicated employees that do work here walked away which is what this location deserves.
Lack of leadership, old building, inconsistent release times, parking is insufficient due to delivery company sharing lot, old single bathrooms
Overworked and Underpaid and Blamed By Upper Management!
Compliance Technician (Former Employee) – Cerritos, CA – July 8, 2016
Initially, I was excited to work for this company. Things were running smoothly because we were taught to do our job duties illegally and incorrectly. Upper management was relaxed and chill until we started to change policies and do our duties the correct way. Once this occurred, the beast face came out of upper management and the "finger pointing" occurred. We were given huge workloads with an impossible expectation to finish it all within 8 hours. Yeah overtime is great, but advantage was highly taken over great and hardworking individuals. The job duties I had were great and not hard, but with the misleading guidance and arrogance of upper management, my work environment was mentally draining. Work and life balance is impossible with these people. Favoritism and group cliques are high amongst this area of Omnicare. I saw so many able pharmacists and technicians quit which was appalling. The last draw was consistently being blamed and pointed fingers at unprofessionally, about the work we supposedly don't know how to do. Upper management needs to be brushed up and cleaned out. I gained experienced dealing with compliance and the pharmacy issues and how to resolve it. I am sad I had to waste my highly derived skills and time with this company when I could have done that for another company or foundation. It is also sad that one part of upper management was telling us one thing and the other was on a whole different level. When the finger pointing started, it would only be pointed at the individual contributors. Also, once you call out themore... so called "upper management" in the group, you get targeted! Lastly, do not be looking for positive reinforcement here!less
Free lunches from time to time, cool coworkers, overtime, benefits
Favoritism amongst coworkers and upper management, long hours, minimal staff, technicians blamed due to lack of management
Revenue Qualifying Coordinator (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 6, 2016
Daily emails, reports, research & billing of accounts. I learned a great deal on protecting patient information and laws which pertain to such information. Teamwork was important in completing daily/monthly tasks. I enjoyed training co-workers within my department on processes and procedures. Sharing my knowledge of my position was the most rewarding part of my job. Management encouraged me to become a team lead within my department, which helped me grow as an employee and individual.

Drama Drama Drama!! Little positivity and management... Well..work here and find out for yourself. It's a shame. I enjoy my work but am always stepped down on. Nothing is done as promised. There are better opportunies out there. Just read all the other reviews and they truly speak volume for what this company is and lacks!
Picking Technician (Former Employee) – Pooler, GA – June 28, 2016
Working here was like nothing else I ever seen before. You had the fake and the real, but most of the time it was fake. Never worked for a company that would doc you for every little thing and hold a grudge when you leave, which is very childish. Leaving here was the best thing I could ever do.

I enjoyed working with this company , but feel like they have top management issues, and will continue to have high turnover rates until they remove the old managers that have been there for a while. its built on dishonest, and the managers stick with each other even if they no its unethical.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – June 18, 2016
I went to work at Omnicare with a full understanding that I would be a staff pharmacist only. Yet, when the manager and other staff pharmacist quit within a month of each other, I became the "interim manager". What that resulted in was 20 months of managing, without the title or additional pay. I felt that we were dangerously understaffed and requested a single additional pharmacist shift. I was denied. Yet, upon my firing, I was replaced with 2 pharmacists and the daily management duties (reports, schedules, etc) were re-assigned to a technician. Clearly, it had always been an impossible job for me to accomplish by myself. The previous 3 managers had quit, for the same reason. Being on call was a nightmare. For a full year, two of us covered alternate weeks. We were on call 24/7 for the full week. Typically, we had to go in 3-4 nights per week. Not including the on call duties, we routinely worked far more than 40 hours. I personally averaged close to 50 hours per week, occasionally 60 hours, for 40 hours' pay. In 40 years of being a pharmacist, it was my worst job ever.
My local coworkers
Long hours, low pay, low morale, extreme pressure.

I worked there for 2yrs the atmosphere was not great there is alot of favoritism and ppl who have cliques team work doesn't even exist there and no one has your back they want to work you like a hebrew slave and give you pennies for a raise literally pennies and to show how much they appreciate you they give you some funky cvs bucks to buy there stuff but still no real money they don't let you advance they try to keep you in one area so they can suck you dry like the blood sacking vampires that they are. Fair warning I wish someone would have warned me...

PHARMACY TECH (Current Employee) – Conyers, GA – June 14, 2016
Its a lot of drama. The older people who been there prolly since the company opened are set in their ways they talk about each other then smile in each other face. Nobody like to help one another they will sit there a watch you drown....Very Poor Management
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Peabody, MA – June 10, 2016
Mind as well call the company Omni "dont" care. Cause they simply don't care about you. Forget about your life outside of work. Supervisors will threaten you with termination if u don't work when they want you to work. That's the culture there. Don't expect managers to help with the overwhelming work, it's your duty to stay and work, not the supervisors.
