My job at the pharmacy involves constantly checking queues to ensure accurate workflow balance. I am the most experienced technician and find myself solving many problems throughout the day. Problems include: insurance rejections, overrides, product availability (due to ordering), requesting refills from doctors, and correcting directions or day supply for prescriptions. Also I complete all data entry on all prescriptions, fill all medications, and check out customers. Along with the previous duties I can order pharmacy supplies, inventory, and process returns of inventory. I get along with everyone in my work place and we have a fun day while working. I like to teach people how to navigate the computer to better the workplace. I understand how the program works and how to achieve good numbers necessary to satisfy corporate's expectations.
Some Cons of the Pharmacy is that Pharmacists and technicians are not knowledgeable on basic functions of workflow and it causes more work/confusion/errors within the pharmacy. The pay isn't comparable to the work that is required. Technicians do the same work if not more than the pharmacists and get paid very low, compared to the high salary pharmacists.
I am skilled and enjoy knowing how to do my job correctly
Most associates are not knowledgeable and the pay is not accurate for work
