Disclaimer: I have used the search function but was unable to locate answers to my specific questions. So I know that everyone always speaks so highly of the work environment at Costco, and I may have the opportunity to work for them and want to get feedback. 1)What duties are expected of Costco pharmacists? Do they handle filling, ringing up customers, typing in scripts? Currently I am doing 150-220 scripts per day (I type in nearly 95 to 100% of the scripts) using about 15 tech hours spread over a 12 hour shift that with opening and closing duties is a 13 hour shift, and can last an additional 1/2 hour to 1 hour if I have the slow technician who doesn't accomplish much. So my average shift actually lasts 13.5 to 14 hours. I guess Costco's shift length is 9 hours including an hour lunch. 2). Do Costco pharmacists come in a half hour early to open up and stay a half hour later for normal close down functions? 3) Do Costco pharmacists stay over on a regular basis to handle unfinished work? I am worried that I will not get enough hours through Costco as I have heard getting full time hours is next to impossible. Do Costco pharmacists get other pharmacist jobs to make up the difference? How does one do that when you are floating and do not know what your schedule will be week to week? I don't want to leave my current position for a worse situation or even just an equal situation but currently I have full time hours, 3 weeks vacation a year, a currently good salary( but pharmacists have been getting little to no raises lately), a half hour lunch most days, closed on holidays. However certain aspects are not so good at work too...the company is not stable, the long hours make family life hard, probably not going to get a raise any time soon, they have cut tech hours by 40% in the last six months. So I am trying to find out as much as I can about working for Costco so I can compare apples to apples. 4) Everyone says Costco benefits are great but who gets them? Full timers over 40 hours? Part timers? Full time above 30 hours? 5) What are the tasks expected of a Costco pharmacist? Everything a tech does and pharmacist duties or what?
