Pharmacy Technician:
Pros: I'm good at it. I have a great bond with most of my patients as we are a neighborhood pharmacy. Work with a great team.
Cons: The company is horrible. They treat employees like garbage, making us do the workload of 4 people. We're so short staffed we can't give our customers the care and attention they should be getting at a health facility. Too much focus on scores and numbers.
