I'm a tech in central NJ. And everyone is right it depends on who you work for and how many hrs you want. I worked about 16 hrs a week (when going to school full time) because I only wanted to work on saturdays and sundays, but some of the other techs I work with that are full time students would rather work weekdays at night so they work roughly 25 hrs or so. However, during breaks (summer and winter) I go back to being full time and get to work 30-40 hours.When Pharmacy Technicians first get hired, how many hours per week do they work on average? How about in NJ?
