Hello, I've been a tech for 4 years at the three-letter chain, and I am moving into a new state for pharmacy school. I am going to first apply for hospital positions. My question though is whether I should stay in my current retail system and work because of the benefits I've accrued or try to find a opportunity like Costco, Sam's Club, or independent to get experience in a different retail setting and establish connections? In other words, would loyalty (who knows how they really treat it, given the current conditions they put us in) serve a student better than getting more involved in other pharmacies and meeting people who can help you out in the future. Does anyone have stories to share about how going one way or the other benefited or hurt their opportunities? Doing both seems out of the question because of conflict of interest, so I will have to choose one option.
