    Pros

    Staff discount Freebies from reps Opportunity to obtain medicine counter qualifications Well established company and job security.

    Cons

    Very little support for staff completing medicine counter certification altho may all be down to poor management from pharmacist. Company not very family friendly to those who wish to work part-time. Management poor at dealing with disciplinary issues turn blind eye to certain issues. No formal training structure in place

    Pros

    Good amount of time given for breaks.

    Cons

    I didn't feel respected or valued while I worked here. Myself and many others felt as though we were looked down on by supervisors and senior staff. Supervisor was often rude and nasty. Always had something bad to say about people's Work. Very little training was ever provided to me, I was expected to learn everything by myself and staff often got annoyed if I was to questions.
