I just got hired at CVS as a pharmacy tech trainee. I could be starting (training) as early has Monday. The store is newly built and will be opening in two weeks. My past job experience has been as a medical assistant (in a private practice) and an in home elderly caregiver. I'm very excited to start and I need this job. But reading the forums here is making me cringe. Is being a pharmacy tech really that bad? I've dealt with many things as an MA and I had to put up with a nasty boss, rude and unruly patients, no room for advancement, and being underpaid with no benefits. So I know what it's like to work in a hostile, high stress environment. But I didn't hate my job. I just needed better pay, benefits, and the opportunity to further my education and training. My co workers were awesome and we were a good team. If you'd like to share your experiences and knowledge; please do so. Any advice is welcomed. Also, what's the dress code? Scrubs? Khakis? I'd love to be able to wear my scrubs. Thank you.
