How worried should we be about Amazon?

When I heard about Amazon entering pharmacy market I didn't give it a second thought. After all, even if some of our pharmacies close as a result we have another employer to switch to. But the more I keep reading about it the more worried I get... —  read more

Pharmacy layoffs again?

I’ve heard from a few places that Walmart plans on keeping their pharmacies closing at 7, meaning losing two hours a day M-F which will undoubtedly lead to hours cuts. Both pharmacist and techs, that probably means 10 hour days with only one... —  read more

Happy to be gone in Wisconsin

I too was told that my RxM position was no longer needed. Conicidence that I was hired 11 plus years ago and the new RPh's are being hired at a much lower wage? I think that the computer program (S3G) that figures out how many RPh's are needed per... —  read more

Market director layoffs

Market director layoffs would be a great start, but if we're going to fix all the ills, we certainly can't stop there. Regionals and VP's need to answer for the fubar this company's pharmacy division has become. They made all the decisions that... —  read more

I would never have believed it 20 years ago, but apparently the field is being saturated with younger, cheaper graduates. I also believe, what with the huge spike in the pharmaceutical industry's profits over those same last 20 years, there is... —  read more

No Job... In a Saturated Market!

I am not a young pharmacist, have been doing this for 20+ years. This industry has taken a toll on my body- standing for 12 hrs a day, with less breaks than are legally mandated, all have contributed to knee/back/joint problems. Each year it... —  read more

Walmart Vision Center Layoffs

Why only Pharmacy? What I don’t understand is why didn’t they cut off in the Vision Centers also? They sit around all day long staring at customers as they walk by. The vision center could cut half of their staff and customers wouldn’t even... —  read more

Volunteering for pay cut

Sounds crazy but have you looked for Rph job opportunities- slim to none. Is there any merit to this idea of going to your DM and volunteering to have salary decreased. Do you think it would offer protection from future layoffs?

What's the best alternative?

I did a little digging on this site, and what I found scared me. The situation seems to be the same across the entire industry - just look at CVS for example. This means that those who were laid off and those of us who are still not safe have very... —  read more

60 days to find another position

So many of our stories sound the same; manager reading from a scripted letter spewing the same bs to everyone. Script sales declining and reduction in hours blah blah blah. I worked at a store with hours allotted only for 2 pharmacist, and we closed... —  read more

Where are the Boards of Pharmacy???

I know the function of the board of pharmacy is to protect the public. How can this move by Walmart be considered anything but dangerous to the public ?? The staffing of chains in general should have been subject to scrutiny as well long ago. This... —  read more

"Respect for the Individual"

I hate to cynical, but then we worked for the company that boasts that it espouses "Respect for the Individual" as a core value even as it is terminating, without warning, the very people who worked to grow their business. So there's that. However, I... —  read more

I was already at a store pulling solo 12 hour shifts/closed from 1:30-2 for lunch everyday, no overlap, yet was told my position was “no longer needed.” I helped get my former store to be one of the most profitable in the market. It was really just... —  read more
