Suggestions for improvement

  • I would look more into making the Medicine Shoppe a preferred pharmacy for all insurance.

What I like about the company

The Medicine Shoppe franchise takes all of the hassle of the dreaded paperwork out of the pharmacy so workers can focus more on customer service and building solid relationships with the customer.

What I dislike about the company

The only thing that I do not agree with is them contracting a certain wholesaler. I think it should be optional.

Support from management

Supervised cursed at employees and doesn't trust his employees. Owner doesn't seem to care about paying employees fair wages.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay employees what they are worth, don't tell them they will get raises and then not give them.

What I like about the company

Co-workers were nice and fun to work with at times. Managers were nice for the most part, but can't be trusted.

What I dislike about the company

Management and ownership doesn't seem to care about keeping employees, giving raises, or keeping up on team building experiences.
