Pros: free coffee
Cons: no training, no talking, long and crazy hours, lots of standing and often in one place on concrete. management does not have a clue.
Even with previous pharmacy background, you will be lost in the sea of Omnicare. Once hired staff usually, with help of management spend the day putting out fires. No one can complete a work assignment because of constantly being moved to a different area to put out a fire. New people are not trained. They are just thrown in the mix and expected to perform like someone who has work for a year. The culture there is your a body, do this, now do that, now do this. Yet, they will not show you how to do anything, or explain anything. They want no talking, fast work, and be willing to live at the place if the need arises. Which is everyday, since it's so mismanaged nothing get done on time. Then when the dust settles down, they will have a meeting about all the mistakes made. Long hours, no communication, management just makes appearances to put out fires and ramrod the crew to where the nearest fire is burning. Total disrespect for new people. A new person will be on their own to learn what they can, and if your lucky someone might answer a question, which totally depends on their mood. Low morale, long hours when mandated. Crazy start times, for most everyone. They don't even tell the new hires they get two breaks or a lunch. Keep them working until they figure it out. Turn over is high, and the stress is higher. Don't work for them unless you absolutely need a paycheck. Oh, and did I mention the standing all day, bad lighting and crazy cold conditions. But they do have free coffee, and provide plates, silverware, water, etc., provided you have figured out you get two breaks and – more... a lunch. A most impersonal place to work. It will pay the bills, but you will be stressed out daily. You can work tons of OT, but it's never enough and it's daily. Bottom line, seek other employment if possible. Unless, you enjoy making mistakes with drugs all because they don't provide training. Could be a better place to work, but it would take listening to the workers, and that's not going to happen. – less
