Certified Pharmacy Technician

September 2019 • Arlington Heights, IL

What I liked

Great staff, great hours, work feels meaningful specifically for my position, room for job growth, work in the medical field, and good pay for the job description after certification.

What I wish was different

Nothing really, I still enjoy my job to this day and I look forward to going home and working with my coworkers again. They provide the flexibility to come back and work on long weekends and over breaks which is great for me being away at school.

Advice

It takes a bunch of brain power, a ton of patience, and energy to complete your shifts. If you don't feel like you can provide consistent energy, empathy, and enthusiasm for conversation with patients throughout the length of a shift then I would not suggest this job for you. This job can be stressful at times and very fast paced but it is one of the few jobs that I have found that is considered to be in the medical field that I can work before I get my college degree as well as where I can go home feeling satisfied that I am doing my part and helping peoples lives.

Certified Pharmacy Technician

June 2020 • Hamilton Township, NJ

What I liked

I liked the management in the pharmacy a lot. They listened to my suggestions and ideas, praised employees when they did well, and we had routine one-on-one meetings to discuss how things were going.

What I wish was different

It takes a long time to get used to the system that they use, and that system is very outdated. I think things might go more smoothly if the system was updated.

Advice

Although there are some nice patients, be sure to expect angry patients and try your best to respond with empathy and kindness.
