Stressful, but can be enjoyable
Pharmacy Technician/ assistant manager (Current Employee) – Shepton Mallet, Somerset – 9 May 2018
I could be serving people on the till, or pharmacy counter. I often make up prescriptions, order stock put stock away on shelves. I also manage the sale plan on the shop floor put away shop retail delivery. I also work in the care homes room putting together packs of medicine for care homes and people.
I have learned that the most important part of pharmacy is the patients, and their safety with their medicines.
We have a good workplace culture but the company expects a lot from you. The hardest part of the job can be not getting upset when people shout at you if they are not happy and not to take it personally but to remember they are also just people who are not feeling well. The most enjoyable part is helping someone who really needs it and knowing you have made a difference in their lives.
Staff discount, a staff benefits box, I get a 5 weeks holiday.
Company expect a lot from you for what you get paid, which I think is too low for what you are responsible for in the job.
