Pharmacist Reviews

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.
