Hi, I just got a job at CVS and I'm a Pharmacy Service Associate (cashier). I went to the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy site and found out that I have to get a permit, work 600 hours, and then take the test to be certified. Meanwhile, CVS gave me a book full of tasks that have to be learned and training videos that have to be completed before I can move on to being a tech. So I need to do both the Board of Pharmacy stuff and the CVS stuff? I'm confused and the pharmacist said she wasn't sure. Also, I started at $7/hr..do I get a raise when I become a tech (by doing the CVS training stuff)? Or only if I finish the stuff to become certified? I do want to get certified, but with all the Board of Pharmacy requirements it looks like it will take a while! Thanks for your help..and any other info about working at CVS is appreciated!
