Coworkers and management were a pleasure to work alongside. A family-like feel almost.Work can be repetitive. Hours WERE great as well with short (or no) Fridays.

Really Nice Managers, Coworkers

Dispensary department is fast-paced, almost always something to do at all times of the day. Everyone is very helpful and willing to answer any sort of questions. You can work at your own pace at this pharmacy, you will never be rushed or told to work faster. They tend to pay higher than the average pharmacy, with full-time, steady hours, so hours are not changing with each shift.

Pros

Everyone is very nice, there are a lot of learning opportunities

Cons

Standing during entire shift

Good Company, Poor Management

Worked in Chews for almost 1 yr. Managers choose their favourites and demean the rest. Cliques are already establish, so you’ll be lucky to find someone nice to actually chat with. Everyday is unpredictable for volume of workload. Some days you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy, however mostly you will be literally sitting around bored with nothing to do. The process of making chews is engaging, but if you don’t want you’re mind to be idle for hours, I highly recommend not applying for this department.

Fun workplace and nice people around to work with.

Good company to work and to have an experience. People are nice to work with except managers who are not supportive on my career for growth no matter how dedicated i showed and shared with them.

Pros

Free lunches

Cons

No room to advance and grow. Managers are not supportive.

Family workplace environment, not stressful job

At Summit we make compounding of medicaments. Some days are a busier than others, but nothing impossible to achieve. They teach everything you need to know to perform the job. There is team work, and everybody helps each other. The management is great! They are there to help you achieve your goals and guide the team, and know what is going on in the company. They do not come with random requests that do not make sense for your job. The hardest part would be that it is a physical job, so you would need to stand most of the day and do some repetitive tasks. The most enjoyable is the team and everybody working together.

Pros

Monday to Friday, more vacation after 5 years, benefits

Cons

Repetitive physical tasks

Stressful and unwelcoming.

It is an office that is stressful and if you are not part of the click or not thick skinned it can be challenging. It is lacking in training guidelines.

Pros

The only pro is speaking with the vet clinics that called in to place orders or ask questions.

Cons

Bad vibes in the office and be prepared to be talked about, unwelcomed and/or made to feel incompetent during your training and after.

Free lunch ( pre-covid). Great hours.

Cons

Standing all day

Dont expect much here

Management have no children, so have no empathy for family life. They do not treat staff fairly nor do they take the health and saftey of staff very seriously.

Disappointing, unprofessional, Never accountable.

New hires always come & go. Let go of hard working people & hire new each month so they dont have to pay benefits. Managment are rude & petty in chews

Hours are nice, but thats about it

Boring factory work setting. Management in building 15 is HORRIBLE. Favourite staff members can do whatever they want but if the manager doesn't like you, they are quick to discipline over the littlest thing. They do not care that you are passionate about your job. They would rather hire new people then move you to another department. I had issues with a coworker due to her constantly leaving the work station to talk to other coworkers. She wasnt disciplined because shes a favourite. If you are coming from a pharmacy background, working in chewable treats really dumbs you down. no inputting RXs. Same tedious task repeated all day evey day. One of the managers thinks he is Gods gift to Summit. High turn over rate because everyone hates it.

Pros

off at 230 on Fridays

Cons

No growth within company

Demanding workload, with constant management supervision, and bagel breakfast.

the day started with a bang. Orders left from the day before that had to be processed before we could start on that day's work. Hours of constant scripts to fill, under the close supervision of management. Management were people that I truly enjoyed working with. They seemed supportive, and demanding but it is business. Bagel breakfast brought us all together from different departments, to socialize and we would review some meeting matters. The co-workers held the team effort. I learned a lot more about shipping.The hardest part of my job was to keep calm under the pressure, to ensure that every script is correct. The most enjoyable part of my day was that moment that you clear your bin of prescriptions and starting on the next pile!

Pros

Bagel breakfast

Cons

cracking into the click

Good hours, boring jobs

the shifts are generally 8-5, except you get off early fridays at 2:30. you end up with a 44 hour work week because of the half hour unpaid lunch. theres two breaks in the day, lunch and break. the jobs are somewhat boring, and the pay is a bit over minimum wage

Pros

a free lunch every month

Cons

boring, same old-same old work
