Pharmacist Technician Reviews

What is it like working as a Pharmacist Technician?

Pharmacist Technician in Amarillo:
"Packing Pills Pays the Bills."
Pros: As pharmacists technician the majority of my day is spent counting medications and double checking the prescriptions. You'd have to be brain dead to not excel in this field.
Cons: My bosses and the company owners have extremely poor management skills. They pay us nothing compared to what I could make elsewhere.
