Pharmacy Life for Technicians
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 13, 2018
Beware to other pharmacy technicians! The pharmacy leadership tries to sell you on the fact that they are a team, but when it comes down to it, there is a separation btwn. techs and pharmacists. When there is heavy work load, you can only depend on other techs who are already bogged down with their own work, but will help. Most pharmacists will not help unless asked, even if they see you need help. Leadership doesn't listen, even when issues are brought to their attention. Best advice: Get in, do the work. Don't try to make friends. Learn what you can and move on. No room for career growth. Do not tell them you are going to college unless your major is pharmacy. Otherwise, it works against you.
Work/life balance is non-existent, no respect for pharmacy technicians, sometimes heavy workload with no help, mgmt. needs more training
