Commenter: SWVA Friend of Pharmacists

Unrealistic Expectations

I have two close friends that are pharmacists.  Prior to really knowing them, I thought their jobs were ideal - who wouldn’t want to make the money they make - right?!?  I was extremely misinformed.  They have an archaic system for leave time both vacation and sick.  In addition to this, there is no bathroom breaks in sight and one doesn’t even receive a lunch break the other receives 30 mins which many days she uses this time to catch up and not drown.  They are swarmed by ppl all day long while having to meet certain quotas plus now giving shots left and right.  We rely heavily on this group to do the right thing and now it is time that their employers do the right thing too.
