Pharmacy Coordinator in Mississauga, ON
on 11 January 2022
Fast paced, understaffed and too many incompetent managers.
Fast paced work, short staffed and high turnaround. Managers that go to meetings all day and don’t offer any help to us. Stay away, this place is dysfunctional! 67% turnover rate. Need I say more?
Pharmacist in Markham, ON
on 4 January 2022
If you like working for a company that consistently changes strategy, fakes inclusion, and rewards incompetent leadership, this is the place for you
Terrible organization with zero structure and zero accountability. They are a detriment to the retail pharmacy profession but continue to act like they are pushing the profession forward. I escalated a concern about my leader and had a senior vp look me in the eye and tell me straight to my face that the concerns were valid. Not more than a day later, I received an insincere email saying there were no issues. Zero transparency. DO NOT WORK HERE!
Shipping & Receiving Clerk in Meadowvale West, ON
on 27 December 2021
Busy, hectic at times, but fun.
Great place to work in. Most team members are cooperative. Hours are reasonable. As the establishment was still being set up during my tenure, some of the systems were not in place yet, so coordinating was sometimes a problem. But the resolution and purpose with which the work progressed, I am sure things would fall in place well once the initial setup phase was done. That is all I have to say for now.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator in Trenton, ON
on 26 December 2021
Stressful work environment that needs a union
I won't speak on the management at this specific location considering most other negative reviews already have. The work environment within the company itself is setup to create stressful situations. There's little organization and communication between different shifts. Every shift becomes overwhelmed and there's little support or safety nets for employees that have mental health issues. This employer claims to care about your personal well being but at the end of the day all you are to them is just a number. A tip I could suggest to any current employee reading this review: GET A UNION. You have no job security at McKesson Trenton. They will terminate you without cause because they have poor communication skills. For any people interested in working at this location: don't the money (that isn't even really competitive for the area anymore) is not worth the stress that this place causes.
Patient Program Specialist in Mississauga, ON
on 18 December 2021
Can work remotely but high employee turnover and understaffed
Very busy and fast paced, different everyday. Sometimes stressful dealing with patients. A lot of staff work remotely. Mangers and Supervisors like to micro manage
