Pharmacy Assistant Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Pharmacy Assistant in Victoria:
"Pharmacy Assistant."
In retail pharmacy you want to be fast and accurate but accuracy is paramount. It doesn't matter how quickly something is done if it's done incorrectly. Take a moment to read everything associated with the one thing in front of you. Make sure you know what needs to be done before you even start doing it.

Pharmacy Assistant in Miramichi:
"Why retail isn't the best."
I would advise a new pharmacy assistant to either go back to school and be a pharmacist or don't bother. Retail pharmacy is great if you are in with the right crowd.

Pharmacy Assistant in Brantford:
"High stress job."
