Pharmacy Technician Reviews
Q: What is it like working as a 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.
"The level of stress."
Pros: Sitting and computer based job, easy, no stress.
Cons: Boring and not a great pay.
Great choice and exciting career. Focusing in customers/patients/ health professionals. Checking stock level. Wards visiting. Dispensing medications. Profiling and saving patients's information. Continuing education.
"Over worked, impossible expectations."
Pros: Working with people and training new employees.
Cons: Understaffed, high turnover rate. Not respected. Impossible demands, set up for failure.
"Corporate, highly stressful, good hours."
Pros: Helping provide people with the medications that help them live out fairly comfortable days.
Cons: The stress, co-workers not cooperating, not many benefits, the pay.
Take advantage of the opportunity to learn. Then continue to test the market for jobs with more pay or better work-life balance.
