I was nice to be hired into this job because I was only in high school how ever I was treated as such. It is a very fast passed enviroment in which I liked but if there ever was a mistake they always looked at the toters first as if we were always the cause.
Pharmacy Technician Intern (Former Employee) – Denison, IA – October 14, 2017
At Thrifty White Pharmacy they are very kind and friendly individuals. They are very patient and organized. I enjoyed so many things there especially how friendly all the staff were to all of their customers. I would recommend this job to absolutely everyone.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – MN – August 30, 2017
Decent place to work. Good pay and benefits are really good. No work on major holidays and paid time off and sick leave after your first year. Only problem is that there is a ceiling to how far you can advance unless you have formal education, but that's to be expected.
The company strives for the best of all markets that it works with. There are constant changes to workflow and what is expected for the productivity. In the pharmacy the communication is something to be desired with the management.
Hated to go to work! You were not allowed to sit even if order entry. So much favoritism. I was a smoker at the time and had to hang my jacket away from everyone else. One tech had a kitchen timer and would set it whenever anyone went on break and watch for them to come back
This was honestly the best place I have ever worked at. Aside from a couple of rude employees it was amazing. I absolutely loved every bit of the company. The only reason why I left was because I had moved.
Would order lunch on Saturdays, amazing staff, understanding, willing to work around schedule, discounts
A day at work is filled with smiling faces, we all have our own jobs to do within the pharmacy and can communicate across departments very easily. I have learned a lot about Long Term Care pharmacy and what it's like dealing with the patients and providers. I also learned about having an employee owned company which is different than family and corporate. The management listens to everyone and is very friendly even when it comes to work/life balancing. There are many resources to use within the company so that we can get the best benefits with no secrets to try and figure out. It is a very diverse company with many different people working together efficiently. They are also very friendly and know they have someone to go to for anything they might need. The hardest part of the job would be billing and insurance-which is usually hard, but important when getting needed medications. to patients on-time. Another part just specific to me is that the distance to my home is very far. The most enjoyable part is that I don't have to feel ashamed for telling my boss about issues I am having at home, and that whatever needs to be figured out to make my work comfortable they will provide.
Great management, monthly potlucks, weekly recognition, relaxed atmosphere, flexible schedule
I worked here for a year and a half. They promised movement within the company if there is a desire for growth, but in truth you'll be wherever management wants you. They gossip among themselves - there is no confidentiality, and those in management are those who enjoy playing the political game, not people with a mind for growth and development of the employees. For an employee owned company there isn't a lot of happiness and satisfaction among the employees. The benefits are horrible - no vacation for the first year, no sick pay, and after a year you still don't get sick pay if you're only out for one day. I threw up one day and went to work because that is the only way I could get paid. The one thing they are great to work with is making time if you have appointments. That's the only good thing I have to say about this company.
Thrifty white is nice place to work. You work by yourself alot which is alright. Do alot of standing. I"m in front alot helping the customers, putting stock on shelves and taking off expiration product off the shelves. My co-workers are enjoyable to be with.
Working here was crazy! I lasted three days! When customers come in to pick up prescriptions, if they are not on the rack you have to go search through all these baskets, getting in everyone's' way. There is no organization to the training at all, you are just thrown into it. They would benefit from using an automated phone system like most pharmacies do so the clerk can concentrate on waiting on customers' and the techs can fill prescriptions'. My co-worker's were all friendly enough and the manager and pharmacist were great and very friendly. I feel the stress level would be greatly reduced by taking prescriptions through an automated telephone system and creating a roomier work space. I worked in Sandstone and would still be there if a more organized system was in place.
It is ok but still retail pharmacy which away from the good benefits of hospitals and it is mainly depending on your hard physical working not on only on your smart brain. The communication between the team members is very bad and there is an issue between each department and the other. Your wage depends mainly on your relation with the pharmacy manager bo system or unity of the starting wage.
terrible wage and benefits with females preference.
