I was the senior Pharmacy Technician in this Company. I trained other staff member how to use the system and where the different types of drugs are placed. Computerized patient information. Pharmacy Technician was not recommend to have a license until it was implemented mandatory. When it came to pass I was drop from my position to Pharmacy Assistant. I did not like my Title because I have my diploma in such field and years of experienced. My day at work was always hectic lots of workload. I like to have work to do and not to idle, I work with less supervision. Management excellent. The hardest part of my job is to deal with irritable customers. Their ways to deal with people in such situation is to make them feel good by talking to them softly and always smile. I never found my job harassing I love my job whether its hectic or not its a learning experience and with other team members from different background. I really enjoy my job. Gain a lot of incites especially learning about various medications.
My boss and coworkers were amazing to work with. While working, everyone worked in a unit making sure that the work got completed in a timely manner. Not understaffed. Work included creating blister packs, counting prescriptions, prescription input, putting away stock, and cashier work.
Stressful job, but it is stressful in every pharmacy
Great software easy to operate. Terrible manager. She would change the part time staffs schedule so many times that part time staff would often miss their shifts and/or come in at the wrong time. Since the restructuring and massive layoffs the staff that remained are very afraid of losing their jobs. Instead of assisting their part time new team members so the team can work well together they are mean and bully the new staff. The system for blister packs makes no sense and is a huge waste of time! The new manager showed a huge amount of favoritism towards senior staff at the expense of new staff. This was also the worst costumer service I have ever seen. The pharmacy manager laughed and belittled customers. She made a man feel so uncomfortable in front of me once that he told me he will be filing a complaint immediately. The senior pharmacy tech was also reude and condescending to customers. She had several complaints filed against her and the manager said that she sees her as professional and protected her while throwing a newer team member under the bus which made her loose her job. The pay for such a busy environment is terrible. Paying someone minimum wage at such a serious job is ridiculous. I'm sure not all Rexalls are like this one but judging by the kind of managers this company employs and puts in charge of a pharmacy I do not believe this chain will survive much longer. Another pro was the front store manager. Amazing person who went out of his way to help out all the new team members even though he knew nothing about pharmacy. Work in this place at your own risk - more...

Management looks down on women, feels work is incomplete due to staff not working hard enough. Claims no one wants to work in town and no one is educated! Customers complain all the time. RX scripts not entered for up to 2 weeks, pills not ready when customers come in. It’s always the staffs fault, management is bullying. They only care about the bottom line.
Dental plan for part time
Very disorganized, too much stress
meet different people with different background and chat with time about their experience makes my day at the pharmacy. Seeing seniors comes and goes ins and outs from pharmacy with their health issues really makes me appreciate my life and youth.
Free coffees and snacks sometimes
I worked in the arnprior location and it was a joke. The staff stole , the management belittled the staff and there was absolutely no attention to customer service. I am sure the overall company is good but not this location.
mostly nice relief pharmasists
horrible management and pretty much everything else too.
