While I do like the fulfillment I get from working in the retail pharmacy business from the standpoint of providing patients/customers with medications and assistance, I feel as though the company is failing in a few regards. The biggest gripe I have as a pharmacy tech would hands down have to be the compensation. While pharmacists are presumably paid handsomely (rightfully so) the technicians (unless you're full-time) are given the short end of the stick. I just feel that we should be paid a higher hourly rate. Secondly, I feel as though the hours per week given to the work required for us to complete various tasks is impossible. More hours to complete work and an increase in pay.

I would like more hours, but overall I have had a great experience. I really enjoy the people at work and I also enjoy that the hours do not seem long. I like the fact that Jewel-Osco employees are in a union and I also appreciate the fact that the job site is close to home. Coming back to Jewel was a great experience for me because I am able to earn some money to help pay for school. I really enjoy the fact that I interact with a variety of customers throughout the day. I like being paid every week as well. Jewel-Osco provides me with the opportunity to gather work experience along the way of furthering my career.
The store itself is neat and clean. Quite confusing for shoppers after the remodeling and moving aisles around. Management is not the greatest at one store particularly. Overall, the staff is always helpful and friendly. Always willing to help and some in management are willing to help with things such as scheduling. The only real issue is that the stores are quite often understaffed. Whether it be, not enough baggers or cashiers. Either way it can slow down the process of people getting in and out of the store quickly and efficiently.
