A new associate had no people management skills. I blame the the company for not giving any training. All the pharmacy staff were very unhappy and looking elsewhere for new jobs. I stuck it out for 1 year believing that things would improve after the new associate "settled in". Unfortunately we lost most of our contracts. I was also given only evening and weekend shifts as the associate declared she would not work any of these. I could not even go to the annual pharmacist conference which I had attended for 10 years. Head office should have a program for all new associates which teaches them how to be respectful of employees. A "wait and observe approach" initially would have been so much better. She questioned everything we did, how and why we did it and felt compelled to change everything, i.e. even placement of the garbage can, stapler, etc. It was pretty much chaos for months as she kept changing her mind and we struggled to catch up. She did not value our input or opinions. This was her first store so the head office people that chose her should have been more involved and given her proper guidance and training.
