Professional, exciting company to work for.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
By far the best company to practice pharmacy with. Neighbourly is the upcoming pharmacy to be with! Culture and management beyond any I have been associated with in over 25 years. Professionally managed, adequately staffed, rewarding working environment, mentally stimulating, professionally rewarding. Worked for several different operators and this is by far the best! So happy to be on board.

Pros

Awesome culture

Cons

Nothing to dislike

Don't bother

Avoid it at all cost. Better benefits, salary and staff at any other pharmacy in town. They treat their staff like a number. Absolutely no career advancements.

Amazing place to work!

Seriously loved this place. was pregnant when I got hired and I told them right off the hop and they still hired me. they made sure that I got enough hours to make maternity leave and always made sure that I was always ok. They always had my shifts the same and asked if I wanted more or less. I had an amazing time there and i miss them so much!

Worst company ever

I worked there for 6 years and was emotionally abused by the owner on a daily basis.Nobody at head office would believe me so he kept getting away with it.When I finally had enough and had a total mental breakdown I called work safe and filed a complaint.

Pharmasave

The people I work with are very friendly and cooperative. The company accommodated me according to my schedule because I have little kids. However the pay is not enough and their annual raise is very minimal

Great at being a pharmacy but not at management

Increases promised but not upheld. Very disorganized. Slow to post schedules which makes for difficult life work balance. Good that uniform is provided. Good opening and closing times. Sunday closed.

Independent pharmacy much more variable than corporate pharmacies.

Independent pharmacies that vary in size and scope and management policies. Wages and benefits vary and working environment also according to owner operators.

Good, friendly and professional environment.

I personally liked working at pharmasave. I have learned a lot and got exposed to a different scale of pharmacy business where pharmacist actually care about their patients and do whatever they can to help them. They always put the time and effort, unlike some other big corporates. Overall, I recommend working there.

Fun job for students

This is a good and laid back job if you are a student, however I found as full-time, this wasn't working. The store is relatively unorganized and I was often called in.

Pros

Fun Job and Good People

Cons

Stress, many things being done wrong
