Pharmacy Technician- Inventory Specialist in Sterling, VA

Compared to chains, grocery pharmacy's a walk in the park. Having said that, often times it becomes too bland. Ok for those who like that kind of pace

The pay isn't bad and the union is good, but staffing is an absolute joke. They can't hire anyone to save their lives and you are expected to do the work of often 3+ people.
Bookkeeper in San Jose, CA

Great co workers. work together as a team. Gets very busy sometimes. Learn a lot about book keeping. Wages were low but overall the atmosphere was friendly.

Good hours, friendly coworkers, plenty of shifts available. occasional overtime or extra shifts when people got sick. no discounts and no special parking
Food Clerk in Santa Rosa, CA

It was a good job while I worked there. Good people and possibility to advance in the company. Average pay. Would not recommend as a career as managers and upper management get fired quickly.
