Pros: flexible boss/hours, never work holidays, great environment
Cons: short, sporadic breaks
I work Monday- Friday anywhere from 9am-6pm or 9am-4pm and two Saturdays a month 9am-1pm, closed all major holidays. I usually spend my day answering phones, bagging prescriptions, waiting on customers, counting prescriptions, and refilling prescriptions in the computer, managing inventory at the end of the work day. While working at The Medicine Shoppe I have learned how to work with the public and assist the customers needs, the names and uses of many prescription and over the counter medications, and how to work together with my coworkers to keep the work place friendly and professional.As far as management, I manage the inventory for the store ensuring that we are stocked with the appropriate items and meeting our target budget. My boss is reliable and flexible. As well as easy to approach. The coworkers are great! They are helpful, professional, and we work well together in order to have a productive work day. The business is a small town pharmacy so the hardest part of my job is turning away a customer in need when we do not have an item in stock, usually because it is to expensive to keep on the shelf. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we satisfy our customers because of our efficient service and the polite, respectful environment that we provide.
