Pros: excellent team
Cons: no benefits
As a pharmacy technician, part of my job is to collect patient data (HIPPA) and enter it into our computer system, get prescriptions ready for patients, and then ring them out at the register. A typical day at Rite Aid is hectic, fast-paced, and can be very rewarding when a customer recognizes the extra mile we went to in order to keep them a happy customer. However, there are also customers who treat pharmacies as a drive-thru and don't recognize that there are certain laws and procedures we have to follow, and this is the hard part of the job: keeping patient with customers who refuse to allow you to do your job the way it needs to be done. It helps to have a good team to work with. Most of the team at my store is wonderful. Most of them are hard-working and talented and really do their best to go that extra mile for everyone, including their other coworkers. There are a few that don't seem to be interested in lending that extra hand, which means the rest of us have to pick up the slack, but that's something I'm learning to deal with.
