Fast Paced work environment. I learned a lot more bout certain medications and what they do. There is always opportunities for career advancement there. Management does very well at handling all issues and concerns in a orderly manor. The hardest part of the job is what you make it to be. The most enjoyable part of the job the relationships you build with your fellow coworkers, pharmacist, PRICELESS!
Systems Analyst/Database Designer (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – September 7, 2015
Very proud of work accomplished with fine dedicated individuals who worked very hard to save the firm millions of dollars annually while providing a needed service to the community. Improved my programming skills exponentially, especially data base and subfile design. The only negative was in the top management; it was never worthy of the talented employees who worked there and did little to inspire them.
Disrespectful to employees, only care about numbers, not patients not customers
Pharmacist in Charge (Former Employee) – Ashland – September 4, 2015
Horrible place to work, every location is the same. No training, perks are not what you think. Company will tell you whatever they want; Omnicare does not care for patients. It's all.about numbers, the bottom line and the CEO, CFO. No management skills whatsoever. Omnicare needs to be shut down and taken over by CVS, perhaps their business strategy will improve the culture.
lack of patient care, lack of employee interest, worse place I have worked
Pharmaceutical Technician (Former Employee) – spokane, washington – August 28, 2015
The only thing that I enjoyed about working here is the people in my immediate area. Management is very poor, they tend to say one thing and then not hold up what they tell you they will do for you. The pay is some of the lowest in this field. They switch schedules without asking the employee. It seems to be very clique oriented and if you are an outlier you will be treated differently.
no pros to this job
bad pay, worse benefits and un reliable management
she is always willing to assist in any manner (Current Employee) – Cincinnati OH – September 22, 2015
Since we were purchased by CVS in May of 2015, the atmosphere has drastically changed for the worst. Everyone is in a constant state of fear that our jobs could be eliminated tomorrow. Some of us have even been told that we know we will not have jobs after the beginning of 2016.
I enjoyed working at Omnicare Health Network. I learned so much about the importance of having the concise, clear documentation. This job was challenging, as I was interacting with facilities and physicians in which I was required to obtain missing documentation for billing purposes. I was provided with skills to be able to interact with a variety of nursing home/physician practice personnel to obtain information needed in a professional and timely manner. The supervisors were very helpful and engaging. My co-workers were very informative and passed on valuable tips whenever I hit a roadblock. I am glad to have had the experience of working for Omnicare Health Network.
Patient Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – September 30, 2015
A typical day at work was nice. I enjoyed being able to work independently and talk to patients in a rush free way. I learned more about mail-order pharmacy, copay assistance providers and processing prior authorizations.
Pharmacy Technician, Order entry (Former Employee) – Sanford, FL – August 25, 2015
Loved my actual job. Got tired of the shift, high volume work load with additional/new responsibilities from a different department thrown into the mix without being fully trained in the new area added to the stress and confusion. Schedule could have been done better for coverage during busier days. Certain rules not being inforced so too much playing on cell phones was frustrating during extremely busy times and/or talking for long periods of time (while on the clock) distracting everyone else trying to work. Then management not understanding why we complain or become frustrated and then being considered whiners and/or negative did not set well with me.
pay was decent with overnight shift differential
large work-flow, under-scheduled at peak times, low moral, favortism
Fast paced environment with high employee turnover
Triage (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – August 11, 2015
I learned a great many things about the world of long term care. I worked in every area of the pharmacy and its processes. I would always make myself available to all areas of the business to gain as much information as possible. I would volunteer on a daily basis to help where the greatest need was. There was always a large turnover of employees due to lack of communication and training. I enjoyed being cross trained and having the ability to help where ever I was needed. I enjoyed meeting new people and interacting with different areas of the pharmacy and getting to know the bigger picture.
Poor Management and lack of communication and training for new employees
Company seems to have a generally good agenda. Not ACS. Advanced care scripts is run by the worst people imaginable. They are all friends, have closed door meetings, and simply don't care about their employees. They have HR wrapped in their web. No support. You will be lied to, treated as trash, and when they are done with you, they will let you go.
