Stressful cut-throat environment with cheap labor
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – ND/MN – June 16, 2018
Not too long ago, over 75% of pharmacist staff was cut out and since then they are always hiring cheap labor such as increasing residents to 4 this year plus millions of interns and technicians working down in 52 (nursing home production) and 61 (central fill site production mail order). They are always asking salaried workers to work overtime without getting paid, especially the already underpaid residents. Job security isn't good as turnover rate is very high and employees quit left and right, or Thrifty finds a way to let good employees go and keep the bad ones on board. Not many people smile at this workplace and it wasn't fun to work at. Definitely do not recommend working for Thrifty. You will be better off a different pharmacy retail company for sure (besides CVS, probably). Management is also fake and full of lies. They just want to hide the truth and Thrifty's ethics are on the low totem pole. Small mistakes made are also reprimanded heavily on the employee, even though unintentional and mostly due to the system's fault plus poor management. Thrifty values quantity over quality when helping patients: they would rather help more patients just a little (or even not at all- they just want their business and will break whichever ethical law there is to get them to fill with Thrifty) than to give patients the proper help and respect they deserve. I disagree with their policy and ethics in helping patients.
short breaks, short staffed
