There is always something new if you are on customer service and at frontline on sales operations. Your work environment depends on where you will be assigned to. Compensation is fair enough.

Cons

Long hours, straight shift needed, short-staffing, great amount of workload, no work-life balance

Excellent company to work with.

This company helps employees to be at their best potential. Molding them to be a great leader through their in-house Management Training Progam which I’ve been part of it as one of the poineer for Manager Level. They always enriched their team with knowledge and skills through seminars set per position.

Pros

International company

Challenging and worth it

It is actually a manageable kind of job but it is just that I find it really boring to do retail and be more concerned in the business aspect of the job.

The workplace is fun to be with with so many friendly co-employees.

I have learned and still learning thru this company, that is why I am really dedicated to do my assigned job here. I am really thankful that this company provided our needs of my family.

Stressful you will get to do a job that is not on your job description especially on pharmacist

Unpaid OT. Sometimes its already 2 weeks yet you still have no rest day especially if the area is lacking on people. Work life balance is not that good, because sometimes they will cancel your day off.

Stressful and very tiring

The company's opening too many branches but doesn't mind that the existing branches lack manpower. They tend to pull out tenured employees from their respective branches and transfer them to new branches which makes it hard for the store to adjust with the changes. As a pharmacist, I'm deeply hurt and disrespected with their A-ssess D-ispense R-emind system. This policy is about dispensing medicines to patients who did not bring their prescriptions with them (or those w/ copies but in their phones). It's like allowing them to buy medicines (esp. antibiotics) even without prescription. I don't think that doing "assessment" would be enough for pharmacists and pharmacy assistants to dispense such drugs, given the fact that Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) had been rampant and an issue that's hard to solve by our healthcare agencies worldwide. I hope FDA Philippines would clarify if such system is legal.

Pros

Salary is fair enough

Cons

Bad management

Productive, fun, and definitely learned a lot

At first, it's stressful but when you get the hang of the job you'll definitely enjoy it plus the salary is enough to sustain my daily needs. The hardest part of the job is performing well everyday while having your own daily struggles in life. All in all, i enjoyed my stay since all of my workmates were all friendly and i can lean on them in times of need.

Watsons Phils. Very Strong Politics

Watsons has old cultures in handling people. Operations Director down to AOMs are fond of mocking Store Officers. They promote based on their favorites not on outputs made. Continous Hiring due to high rate of turnover and Labor Issues. They don't know how to value performing people.

Pros

Updated Product Lines

Cons

Weak Leadership System

Good salary

A lot of workload but very promising and you'll improve multi-tasking your multi-tasking skills. You may feel overwhelmed at first, especially if it's your first job. But don't worry, you'll get used to it.

Junior Pharmacist/ Supervisor

It's fun to work in Watsons because you will be able to learn more likely to memorize the brand names. The hardest part of the job was you have to extend your time at work, without pay. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction between P.A.'s and Pharmacist.
