Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Wales – 22 April 2018
Worked as delivery driver for nine years and 99% of customers were lovely. Had one particular customer who would not come to door for delivery so I used to leave in a place she has asked me to only for her to complain about me once and was advised I would be having a disciplinary. They took customers side over mine and as no union to help me I decided to leave before disciplinary. No loyalty to their workers by company.
Awful Company to work for steer clear, do not look after their staff
Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) – Bournemouth – 23 February 2018
Terrible company to work, no support for staff run their staff into the ground and have lost lots of very good staff due to this. Then to make matters worse, they used the pharmacy as a DPD collection point, which brought in alot of angry customers and changed the shops dynamics.
Healthcare Counter Assistant (Former Employee) – Manchester – 4 February 2018
I really enjoyed working for this company i had a good manager good communication. I gained my counter assistant qualification in this company which is called NPA certificate which i passed. Very busy day to day which made the time go fast most customers were nice the hardest part of the job was when i was working on my own sometimes as i was full time my colleague who was also a counter assistant worked partime. So on her day off which was fridays it would tend to get extremely busy but it was fun and i would work under pressure but still get the job done and serve customers as well as putting dellveries away.
gained my qualification
left on my own some of the time but worked well under pressue
I worked for Rowlands for many years and found the experience vigorating. The clientelle were wonderful and the staff were amazing. I worked as a dispenser at Rowlands and found the work load very managable and not too complex. I made many good friends who were helpful toward me and if I got stuck were always there to help me on a daily basis.
Dispenser (Former Employee) – Tyne and Wear – 16 January 2018
Short staffed, constantly under pressure to hit targets. Expect dispensers to run pharmacy with Locums. Management, especially area manager very unapproachable. Spoken to like school children at times. Not interested in staff as long as things are running smoothly. Expect far too much from dispensary staff especially for the low wage. No team work, individuals only look out for themselves. No training given after nvq level 2.
Post Office Counter Clerk (Current Employee) – Middlewich, Cheshire – 6 January 2018

Customer Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Wiltshire – 28 December 2017
I enjoyed working with team members, although the organisation and management of the workplace was extremely poor. On one occasion, I, (at the time a 17 year old girl) had to run the pharmacy with a pharmacist who had never been to the area or in that particular pharmacy, without any notice.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Aberdeen, Aberdeen City – 13 December 2017
Dont try being helpful to your customers. Legally they dont need to sign for their medication but dont let the "integrity" team catch you signing on customers behalf. I was made to feel like a terrorist & then sacked. Jumped up security woman...obviously never made it through police college.
Dispensing Assistant (Former Employee) – Greater Manchester – 10 October 2017
No support, no equality in sharing a role, area managers brush problems under the carpet, never see area managers and when you do they tell lies, constantly switching areas so no continuity, never return calls or answer phone. Horrendous place to work, especially since started cutting staff. Unfortunately no loyalty here your just a number
HCA (Current Employee) – Coventry, West Midlands – 1 October 2017
busy well supported. hard work as very busy and shop needs to be attended at all times typical day depends on your position in the company. the workplace culture is good and fair and mixed races of people work together. Its good to meet lots of different people and meets their needs whenever possible.. there are oppertunities to progress and do different types of courses to fit your needs

not enough hours in day to do everything required. lots of focus on nms and other service's. new eps system would work if still didn't receive half of prescription on etp and others on green prescriptions. constantly having to move from one screen to the other. Being at the side of a doctor's surgery always busy.
