Walmart Pharmacy Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Walmart Pharmacy

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 

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 

We should all be glad Walmart forced us out

Walmart pharmacy is a sinking ship. They’re too much of a reactive company, hiring these past executives from CVS and Walgreens. They need to be proactive in health care instead of responding to what everyone else does 2 years late. Reimbursement... —  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? —  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 

When can we expect this to be over?

I really don’t care what happens anymore. I just want all of this to end. Is there any way we can find out when will this situation be over realistically?

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 

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 

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 

"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 

You are no longer needed!

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 

There is no “business need” for my services

I have been a staff pharmacist for about five years right now. I work in Central Texas – I was let go on Wednesday and I was told that my position was being eliminated as there was no “business need” for my services. OK, so I get walked out and this... —  read more 

So long Walmart Pharmacy!

After 11 years at Walmart Pharmacy my wife was laid off. She’s a pharmacist and this was her first pharmacist job. She’s crushed and devastated – she loved every single patient and adored her team, every single one of them. Unfortunately, her loyalty... —  read more 


Today I was informed there will no longer be any pharmacist overlap period meaning 12 hour days. We fill 280 rxs per day. Where is the concern for patient safety? Also was told all stores in district (11 stores) will be cut about 30 hours each. 330... —  read more
