Nice for fresh grad RPhs but not for long term except for those who are really passionate to work in a community setting.
Promotion is fast but salary upgrade is quite not good.
Pros
Good colleagues, Co-workers have nice attitude at work, career growth
Cons
Lack of manpower, Unpaid overtimes, Poor management of staffs

The most enjoyable part of the job is when you’ve done your part as a merchandiser and also by giving a good customer service to our valued customers that will leave them a smile. I am proud that i work in a company with such a long history of leadership in the industry. This is one of the company where you can showcase your skills and enhanced your prospect. I learn a lot of things during my days at ssdi lucena branch. Such as reading and dispensing presption and otc’s drug.
Pros
The expences for transportation during trainings and seminars is reimbursable

Workplace culture is nice. Employees are nice, and very understanding. There are a lot of idle moments especially mid-day since there would only be a few customers.

My work schedule varies from day to day. It was a stressful work because there’s a lot of customers buying medicines but I see to it that I always give the best of what I can to serve them. It was quite tiring but enjoyable because at the end of the day, there’s a lot to be thankful and learned for. I have workmates whom I considered as my friends also.

An effective company summary should give readers, such as potential investors, a quick and easy way to understand your business, its products and services, its mission and goals, how it meets the needs of its target market, and how it stands out from competitors.

Being a graduate of Tourism,Hotel and Restaurant Operations to be part of a pharmacy is a big part for me because they weren't hired you though your background isn't part of the job inside their company.But your capable working on their company.

A typical day at work revolves around designing store layouts and basic estimation. Office hours starts at 8am and ends at 6:30pm, five times a week. So far, I've learned so many things, specifically on the technical side and how to operate different softwares. People are fun to work with and I think dealing with these different types of people are the most enjoyable part of the job.

I worked here as a pharmacist for almost a year. I worked alongside pharmacy assistants who not only felt like they knew they way around the pharmacist but felt superior because of their tenure. The management needs to do something about the lack of training of the employees and common courtesy. No training was done for the newly hired and I personally witnessed workmates still hungover from drinking the night before.
