Pharmacist Reviews

What is it like working as a Pharmacist at The Chemist Warehouse?

Pharmacist in Hobart:
"Good."
Pros: Busy environment, large number of customers so you help more people. Close to my home and located in a lovely area.
Cons: The salary will not increase with experience, minimal opportunity for professional development and that makes me worried about my future when I get older. Sometimes it gets hectic in the store, also I feel there is a big barrier between the staff, the pharmacist and the owners or the general manager.

What is it like working as a Pharmacist?

Pharmacist in Devonport:
"Hard But Sometimes Rewarding."
Pros: The way you can help people - and the way the people in the community respect and care for you.
Cons: When you get yelled at by the people your trying to help or get asked - "why do you need to know that" to which you feel like saying - "so I don't kill you" but have to say something more polite. Also when you have to say no to certain requests that seem reasonable but are actually illegal.
