Pharmacy technician (Current Employee), Milton,Ontario – January 1, 2014
Hi, Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy is the first place from where I started my career. I finished my school and as a co-op, I joined medicine shoppe. The pharmacist and owner is same and he is very kind in nature. He is always aware me if I am doing mistake and he always teach proper method of compounding of various medicine and dispensing of prescriptions. – more... I am working since last one and half year and I worked with few technicians in Pharmacy. All the staff is co-operative.
At the time when I joined the pharmacy I have only books knowledge. But after one and half year I got enough experience and exposure in field of dispensing and billing of prescriptions. Pharmacy is busy on clinic days. Sometimes on same day we were getting more compounding prescriptions and it was the hard time .
One day I was working with relief pharmacist and suddenly power out in pharmacy because of bad weather. Without the lights me and relief pharmacist dispensed the methadone to the patients.
I like to compound the medicines and i really enjoyed a lot in medicine shoppe pharmacy whenever I was compound some suppository , suspension or cream.
I am very thankful to the owner and staff that they taught me various dispensing and practical points. They support me and they gave me an opportunity to join their pharmacy team. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Maumelle, AR – October 16, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: short lunch breaks
A typical day at the Medicine Shoppe would consist of filling prescriptions for customers and giving the utmost attention if they had any questions or concerns. What I learned there was how to interact with customers and how to counsel them on medications or over the counter items they had questions about. My coworkers are great. They were all younger – more... and full of life. It was never a dull day. They were all very hard workers, too. The hardest part of the job was the customers. Sometimes they were hard to handle and stubborn. The most enjoyable part of the job were the hours; my boss was very good with working with my school schedule. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Shelton, CT – August 29, 2013
Cons: owners not friendly
Set up computers process and print out all prescription's from over night that morning. Take in any new prescriptions type and fill and wait on customers. Talking with doctor's offices on incoming prescription's . Customer service is a job in its self that requires a lot of patient and courtesy. Figuring out insurance issues and making the customer – more... happy. Answering phones and helping solve problems is also an important part of day. Hardest part of the job is when a customer is rude and insulting and trying to keep them calm and resolve all of there issues. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing people on a daily basis who you know and who you became to know and having a nice conversation with them. Making the customer smile and is pleased with your job – less

Pharmacist (Current Employee), Park Ridge, IL – May 7, 2013
Pros: relaxed but professional work environment
When you walk into the Medicine Shoppe you can feel a nostalgia for the time of the corner drugstore. Not only are the employees sincerely enthusiastic to be there and exceptionally friendly with the patients, but the patients themselves warmly receive the welcoming atmosphere and professionalism. The Medicine Shoppe serves all patient medication needs, – more... as well as those for durable goods and specialty compound medications. The entire staff and ownership demonstrate the highest level of knowledge and professionalism, and make it a pleasure to be there, both as an employee and as a patient. – less
