Pharmacy Assistant, Burnaby, BC - 2 November 2017
The work day typically starts off fairly slow and picks up later on in the afternoon when the deliveries start going out. Most employees are only trained on one station, however they have recently started to make a point on training employees on multiple stations in case we are short staffed that day and another station needs assistance. The workplace is extremely busy and often hard to keep up with, as the number of staff doesn't exactly meet the needs of the pharmacy. This tends to cause the staff to work quite a bit of overtime, often every day. The hardest part of the job is being able to keep up with the pace while still producing quality work and not making medication errors.
