There was no maintenance department and structure which Management made things very difficult to establish. Most of my co-workers were very pleasant. I found the lack of structure the hardest part of my experience there but enjoyed my trip to other facility in Texas.

A typical work day at Pharmedium was labeling, weighing, and packaging pain medicine. I learn that the medicine that we were handling went directly to the hospital and there was no room for error. The management at Pharmedium were extremely strict in the care of these pain medicines, because of the significance of these drugs. Co-workers were always a pleasure to work with, we literally became a family. The hardest part was the drop in hours and the eventual laying off of employees. The benefits were great and were received from the very beginning.
There are various shifts, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shift. 2nd and 3rd shift workers receive a nice shift differential added to their hourly pay rate. Most people are very friendly and willing to help with any questions you have. Management could be better. Some supervisors are very helpful but others can take a long time to get back to you with help especially for third shift workers that have supervisors working on first shift. We have a decent break room with five refrigerators/ freezers, an ice machine, four microwaves, three snack machines, a dishwasher, sink, and three pot coffee machine with both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee. We also have tea and hot cocoa available. The restrooms are usually kept clean with the help of a cleaning crew that comes through 2-3 times a day.
Hour lunch breaks, room to move up
Parking lot is huge but only one door we can enter through so walking a long distance is common.
A great time learning about healthcare and different medicines

A typical work day would making sure all equipment was prepared prior to shift start. Packaging, weighing, and labeling pain medicine. Management was very competent and was able to get the best from it employees. Was a very easy job, but very critical because the labeling of wrong medicines could be fatal to the patient. Enjoyed this job because I felt apart of a team that provided vital medication to those in need.
Quality control (Former Employee) – Southaven Ms – April 6, 2015
The work environment was very stressful. Leadership didn't really understand their roles and often times the pressure on co-workers could be eliminated if team work was really emphasized. This employer has no empathy for employees with families especially sick/dependent children
the working conditions, Lack of concern during bad working conditions ex heat cold

This company is great place to work if you thrive off gossip and bullying. The management is backed by human resources rather their decisions be right or wrong. Do not voice any opposition you may have because then they will target you with write ups and suspensions to no end. There is no consistency with the rules and employees are miserable because there is no safe haven to express how you feel (some open door policy, lol!). Most employees come to work just so they can receive the healthcare benefits, nobody truly loves their work environment or what they do! The clean room is the best place to go to because the pharmacist are not as childish and petty as the supervisors in label/pack and batching/staging. The hardest part of the job is not even work related, it is tip toeing around the coworkers and management so that you will not lose your temper or become subject to some rudimentary bullying.
one hour lunch break and you can leave off the location, healthcare benefits, indoor work enviroment
short notice mandatory overtime, managers who don't even have the decency to speak let alone help you solve a problem, gossiping, childish coworkers
I learned how to verify IV solutions and other raw materials. The hardest part was learning how to use their devices, but I caught on quickly. The most enjoyable part of this job is the great benefits you know you're working for.
