The main thing that I disliked stemmed from times where finding adequate staff was difficult. The part that I didn't like were when I was coming to work to act as an intern and learn, but I had to spend the entire time simply performing technician duties because the store didn't have enough personnel to allow me to perform my clinical functions. Obviously, there were numerous times where I enjoyed helping out, and you can definitely learn plenty from "running the register" (practicing patients counseling, for example), but when this became the norm, it became difficult to have the desire to get more experience because it didn't seem like I was gaining much. Having projects and tasks specific to being an intern were really what excited me and allowed me to continue to learn over time.
I really liked the "family" feel of working as a Pharmacy Intern at The Kroger Co. They really took me in and made me feel special and that I was making a contribution. The only thing that I disliked about being a Pharmacy Intern at The Kroger Co. was the difficulty in getting more hours when I had time to work more.
