Pharmacy Dispenser (Former Employee) – York – 28 November 2018
New manager took over people started to leave because he was arrogant he didn't replace them and he always got the team members doing all his work that was managers jobs whist he sat in the consulting room or at the front of the store on his phone he never logged his own mistakes only them of my co workers and was always making mistakes as he wasn't focused on what he was paid to do management know as customers have complained but he riggles out of Every time I love my job and the company but he is letting Lloyds down and they won't realise it till it's to late and all staff have gone and or he kills some one !!!
Dispenser (Former Employee) – Taverham – 24 November 2018
Lloyds Pharmacy was an experience that helped me to realise that my passion lay elsewhere. For someone wanting to have a career in Pharmacy it is a good place to be, but I am more interested in the arts.
The pharmacy is fantastic career to get into if you have the time to progress with your career. My children are priority so unfortunately wasn't the right time for me but definitely look to do it in future. Very interesting place to work and you learn a lot
Dispenser (Current Employee) – West Midlands – 2 November 2018
Horrible company to work for. Claim to be there for their customers but it's all targets targets targets. Staff are never appreciated for what they do. They fail to realise there's only so many hours in everyone's shift not everything can be done. You can go sit on checkouts or stack shelves for 9.20 an hour with little to no reaponsibility. !!!! Ridiculous
The £15 a head you get at christmas
Understaffed.under appreciaged. Demanding more none stop.
Pharmacist manager (Former Employee) – Ipswich – 26 October 2018
I enjoyed working for LLoyds pharmacy. They helped with part of my pre-reg training and offered me a 4 year contract after which I had small children so decided to work part time for them and then as locum pharmacist worked in many other businesses along side regular Saturdays at Lloyds Pharmacy Ipswich.
recently locum co-ordinators were not as they used to be .
Shop Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 10 October 2018
I worked for a week from 9:00-3:00. I would first go into the shop and sort out the medicines. I would then look at the required medicine for the day then get it ready for the customers to pick up. I would also call customers to pick up their medicines and work behind the counter. The hardest part of the job was on a Wednesday because it was the busiest day and it was tiring but I pulled it off as I was unwilling to give up. My co-workers and boss were very nice and helpful. I learned to manage my timings and how to work behind the counter.
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Chorley, Lancashire – 9 October 2018
I worked as a CSA for over a year. Bullying was rife, management ignored it. I almost had a breakdown because of it. Job was lovely but the environment was awful. Pay was rubbish and the lazier you are the more you get paid.
Dispensing Assistant (Current Employee) – Scotland – 7 October 2018
Management is great, they are willing to help you learn and advance and the people I work with are all lovely and as you train your wage will increase as well which is a big plus. Only negative I have is they don't seem to have any full time positions, only part time and when you ask about getting full time hours they can't offer you any more because the company is on such tight budgets so can only offer part time or over time here and there, otherwise I really enjoy working here.
Get the opportunity to learn, Managment is really good
No full time hours, only part time work, no contract
Dispensing Assistant (Former Employee) – Horsham, West Sussex – 4 October 2018
Ridiculously understaffed due to budget requirements, which made the workplace much more stressful for employees and dangerous in terms of patient health and safety due to the increase risk of errors. Would highly advise job seekers to avoid Lloyds pharmacy.
Pharmacy Manager (Former Employee) – West Midlands – 1 October 2018
Way too much pressure to hit targets - sales, murs etc to the point it becomes stressful. Money isn't great either. And if you are not best friends with the senior management, do not expect to further your career here
Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 28 September 2018
A typical day at work would entail serving costumers at the til and giving out prescriptions as well as giving advice and helping costumers to look for what they needed. I also stocked products and alerted the floor manager when stocks were low. I also picked up phone calls and answered any answered any basic enquiries that i could for my job title. I also was familiar with paper work, for example filling out prescription forms and ensuring the data was correct, as well as printing out labels for the prescriptions. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the costumers and communicating with them. While working, i developed communication skills as well as working in a fast paced environment. I also learnt work ethic and how to address and speak to the public as a professional.
