Hello Everyone, I'm trying to get a part-time job at a Pharmacy (something like Walgreen would be great); I'm in the Chicago area. I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on this. I applied to Pharmacy schools for Fall 04, but am still waiting to see if I'm accepted. However, whether I'm accepted or not I want to work at a pharmacy this summer. Here are my specific questions: --Is there an agency I should contact, or is it best to just walk in and ask them if they are hiring --Will my chances of getting a job at a pharmacy be much better if I'm actually accepted somewhere --Also, in the past when I was hired by a pharmaceutical company, my start day was delayed by a few weeks b/c they did an extensive background check and drug test, is it same with a pharmacy? So MAINLY, I'm wondering if its best for me to wait to find a pharmacy job till I hear from my schools (in case I get in), or should I start looking ASAP to give them enough time to hire me and do all the checking they may do? I would like to start in May. THANKS for any feedback!
