I love working at MPGL
A typical day at work kind of slow in the morning and eventually gets busier as the day progresses I love my colleagues and I love MPGL . They accomodated my special requests most of the time.

Working with children bosses
As a RPHT, the work on paper is pretty sweet, almost like an office job sitting and checking. However the organization hires mangers that would love to use you as stepping stones to a better position in the company, or see how much they can squeeze you dry before throwing you away. The company breaks a lot of Ontario labor laws, such as forcing overtime, work place harassments when someone refuses work beyond 44 hours a week or refuse possible dangerous task that could harm yourself or patients. Saying No to anything is a death wish. Even with documentation, HR only listen to these mangers and any complain falls on the worker. As if the a non manger has the power to control time management of a team. There is no proper record keeping any mistakes they assume it was yours, or try to pin it on you, as they need an scapegoat. Performance is not based on handwork, but how much you can lick boot and how you can fake it. The list of long term care homes has some that are high volume and low volume, if you are smart do all the low ones and on paper it looks like you did amazing per hour. No real measurement of an employee’s worth, if you buckle down and work hard taking on the large homes, you get called in for low number of homes per hour. If I had to recommend this company I would say yes if your desperate or patient care means nothing to you and you are a YES person.

Biased manager
The reporting Manager was biased. Very poor professionalism I felt I am at a school where i have to ask my manager to go drink a glass of water. I would never recommend anyone to work with this organisation. May be not all the offices are like that but The Mississauga location is definitely not working with

Not a good place to work
Poor, negative environment. Management needs to change. Reflects poorly amongst staff members.
No work life balance. Nothing ever pleases management. If you have the option, don't work here.

Very productive and collaborative
Working at Medical pharmacies is a great opportunity. You learn many things related to the pharmaceutical industry. It is ver inclusive and easy- going. That being said it is also a precise and fast-paced job.
Pros
Occasional free lunches
Cons

High turnover
Very high stress atmosphere. Immature staff being hired. Communication issues need to be dealt with immediately. Group meetings non-existant, which should be to keep things organized and in good work flow. No HR open door policy at head office level to discuss issues to fix. Not enough staff hired to help keep business flowing efficiently, so overtime is a common
problem

Horrible Interview
They were the most unfriendly and judgmental seeming people. If you don’t act like being a pharmacy assistant or the like is your ultimate and only life goal they immediately turn sour. Very bad vibe from the two managers who interviewed me.
Pros
Quick to interview
Cons
Rude people

Friendly staff and environment
working efficiently, in a fast pace, and at the same time, accurately. Time management was definitely very important, as it helped to get things done in an orderly manner. I really liked and was encouraged by teamwork, as it was beneficial to the whole group.

Productive, but lacking in management and salary
As stated above, it is productive. You're pushed hard and really have no room for slacking off. I like that, personally. Management could be worked on and there definitely could be more given in terms of salary but the people are great otherwise.

it's all about the money
management is more concerned with getting more money while the rest of the hardworking staff have to deal with patients with no appreciation from management whatsoever.
quality of work is gone.

very fast staff turnover.

management is very clueless about pharmacy and patient care.

Work days fly by
I love my job at MPGL! We have a great group of coworkers, the worklife balance is good. Shift rotation is fair with day, evening and weekend shifts. My Immediate manager is approachable and flexible and willing to help. Wage is competative and they do a excellent job of keeping me motivated to continue with the company.

Great environment
Was there for a very short time (contract), so may not be able to give a well informed review. But the little time I spent there, the environment was a positive one.

Very tense environment
Overall good company but run by the wrong people.
Managers has no manners .once you are vocal they find all excuse to get rid of you.

As a trained assistant i was micro manage by in experience person who has no formal training in pharmacy. The managers put her in charge of everything with out the knowledge of head office.

I was told on the first day that whatever she says goes but i took my chance anyways.

I was told that i will be managed by two managers by the time i got there it was actually three(gang of three).

Good place to be but these managers cause the place to be very tense.

Overall i had a bad experience .

Head office needs to start look into this matter.

People keep leaving one by one
Pros
Good company
Cons
Poor management, wrong persons in charge
