Poor wages, no opportunity, employees on power trips
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) –  Barrie, ON25 October 2017
It needs a complete overhaul! Some do the work of 3 while others barely due the work of 1!! Not in the “original “ group then forget about having input into anything including hours!! In fact some employees would actually just change the schedule to suit their needs! And management did nothing! Long hours, often missing breaks lunches and washroom stops!!Terrible pay. People hired after with the right connections made more.
One plus, Customers and nurses were awesome to interact with!!

Great Hours
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) –  Picton, ON10 October 2017
The hardest part of the job was getting along with all your coworkers. The management at store level was great, but not so much at upper levels. The hours are great, but due to cut backs it was hard to keep a job.
Pros
Cost of Rx's
Cons
Hours

Horribly managed pharmacy
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC2 February 2017
Terrible managed under crazy busy environment.
Very cheap on wage increase per year, around 20-30 cents per calendar year.
Not easy to take vacation because there's such a limited people working.
have 30 min of lunch break, of course no pay. Often times taking lunch at 3:00 pm because it's too busy.
Pros
Can work forever
Cons
Don't want to work here

Horrid
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) –  Barrie, ON1 December 2016
The management is severely lacking, so the pharmacists all believe they are in charge. There was an employee who constantly made derogatory comments that were overlooked completely. People talk down to one another and about each other. Not one part of this job was positive. We were expected to stay later than our scheduled hours almost daily with no respect for life outside of work.
Pros
none
Cons
too much

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  Oshawa, ON21 September 2016
Good pay, good benefits, good working hours, fair, unionized, uniform allowance- some staff however acts like they are the boss and tell others what to do, even though they have zero authority or right to do so.
Pros
Good hours, fair with everyone, medical/dental benefits
Cons
Seniority based only, no ortho benefits, RX benefits only when filling at their location, strict scheduled shifts, no flexibility there

horrible and redundant! dont work here!###!!
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON21 June 2016
Girls there are catty... So much drama and you will only get advancement when you have been there 10 years. You are stuck doing all the jobs no one wants over and over. No vacation until your second year. If you are sick for more than 1 day... Make sure u get a sick note! Oh and you get no respect! One of the most horrible job experiences ive personally ever had! Save your sanity! ( based on my own experience/opinon... - be aware.. Yours may be different)
Pros
workload is managable, hours, boss and supervisors are caring
Cons
staff, wage is not great, no sick pay for 5 years, lunch is not paid (but only if you work an extra half hour), very hard to advance
