Registered Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Winter Garden, FLMay 6, 2014
Coming in from a chain retail pharmacy, one might need a second to get acclimated to the older practices of pharmacy where the medications are shelved according to brand and generic, not alphabetically. Very competitive, and intimate place to work.

Great working environment and coworkers
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Urbana, OHOctober 22, 2013
Pros: flexible boss/hours, never work holidays, great environment
Cons: short, sporadic breaks
I work Monday- Friday anywhere from 9am-6pm or 9am-4pm and two Saturdays a month 9am-1pm, closed all major holidays. I usually spend my day answering phones, bagging prescriptions, waiting on customers, counting prescriptions, and refilling prescriptions in the computer, managing inventory at the end of the work day. While working at The Medicine Shoppe – more... I have learned how to work with the public and assist the customers needs, the names and uses of many prescription and over the counter medications, and how to work together with my coworkers to keep the work place friendly and professional.As far as management, I manage the inventory for the store ensuring that we are stocked with the appropriate items and meeting our target budget. My boss is reliable and flexible. As well as easy to approach. The coworkers are great! They are helpful, professional, and we work well together in order to have a productive work day. The business is a small town pharmacy so the hardest part of my job is turning away a customer in need when we do not have an item in stock, usually because it is to expensive to keep on the shelf. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we satisfy our customers because of our efficient service and the polite, respectful environment that we provide. – less

Fulfilling and pleasant taking care of customers
Independent Pharmacy Owner (Former Employee), Arbutus, MDOctober 20, 2013
Pros: flexible hours
On a typical day, I would receive prescriptions from the walk-in patients, as well as over the phone, the computer and the fax machine. I follow an organised work flow system, making sure that there are on mix ups or errors. I would speak to the patients about their medications, interact with caregivers as well as physicians over the phone. It was always – more... a pleasure supervising and working with the techs. I made sure that the drugs were reordered, while keeping an eye on the inventory. The hardest part of the job was taking care of shortages because it takes time to explain to patients about what is going on and sometimes call the warehouse or doctor's office for substitution. The most enjoyable part of the job was positive patient feedback and when people show appreciation for what I did for them. – less

A Part of Someones Life
Customer Service/Pharmacy Tech NC (Former Employee), Laurinburg, NCOctober 7, 2013
Pros: family type atmosphere
Cons: no breaks other than lunch...
Most of all I enjoyed the patients. Working with different indiviuals helping to meet their needs. Sometimes that could be a challenge but I like a good challenge. I learned something new everyday about customer, policies or medications. We were a pretty family oriented company we had trips together and for the holidays we always did something,even – more... for Halloween we would all get our kids together cook out and go trick or treating. The hardest part of the job for me was not being able to help someone when you know they trully need the help, but working in a pharmacy puts you in those type of situations for a number of reasons. I always did my best to approach those times with kindness and understanding. – less
