Payroll Specialist (Current Employee) – Coventry, West Midlands – 7 March 2019
Good company but bad structure and bad team leaders “company policy “ but I would say team leaders policy. The flexible working time depends on your team leader. Can’t use your mobile phone at all. Can’t check or just have a look if you had a call, if you do you will have a chat with your team leader about the “company policy “ you need to know from the morning if you will have an important call. Training is not provided, just everybody expecting from you to know everything. The good thing is the colleges are really nice.
dipenser (Former Employee) – Hertfordshire – 10 February 2019
I have just left my job at a southeast branch of Lloyds pharmacy. I worked at two branches within the 11 years and 3 months i was with them. the teams in the two shops were lovely however the higher management who used to come in occasionally, were less than helpful and caring to their staff. The branch where we work had a grievance against a member of staff and ultimately the member of staff was never informed and we were left to suffer. also the pay at Lloyds pharmacy is terrible. especially for long term workers. I didn't receive a 'sorry you are leaving us from HR or higher management. they are NOT a caring company to work for at all
shop staff are nice in general
Bad rates of pay. uncaring and neglectful higher management
Payroll Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Coventry – 29 January 2019
The organisation cannot keep hold of it's employees within payroll. During a period of around 12 months I have seen 13 employees leave on negative terms. I can see the software is never going to get better thus forcing people to work extra even doing two or three peoples job in one time. Instead of finding a solution for a software fault they will place what we call a "plaster" and move forward.
They claim to be fair but that is far from the truth. I would avoid at any cost as there are much better organisations out there to work for and be happy. Remember they will drain every penny they pay out of you. The organisation will also watch what you do, how you do it and how quickly you do it. Employing a team leader who has stated within a personal work profile, firing people is a skill, should deter you if anything else.
Free hot drinks and People to work alongside.
No flexibility on work times, discipline for looking at a mobile phone, no real direction.
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) – Morley – 29 January 2019
A fast paced warehouse job. All training is provided and once you have learnt the various jobs within the warehouse its a very satisfying place to work. Management will always support you and get involved with the work when required.
Trainee Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) – Hayes, Greater London – 21 December 2018
There is no shift pattern and are made up last moment on whatsapp groups. They don’t care about your health/disability if you need adjustments and is taken very lightly. Inbetween shifts you are required to walk to gps to collect prescriptions which takes upto an hour of walking time. Pay is very less to the amount of work the staff make you do. The current staff is very bossy and overload you with extra work that they haven’t completed. Overall, worst place i’ve worked at out of all the jobs i’ve done.
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.
