The smallest practically and legally allowable. Otcs are a waste of space. If you run your own pharmacy as only pharmacist you won't have time to do mtm with any appreciable script volume.

I know when allocating things the bean counters wouldn't agree, but I think a break room is extremely important for employee moral. I worked for a company that completely remodeled their breakrooms- they put really nice furniture, couches, nice paint, and cable tv. I noticed it right away and appreciated what they had done and was much happier taking my breaks there. Then I worked at another company that the breakroom was a fold up table and crappy chair, where when I was trying to eat my lunch customers would stare at me since the door never closed properly. Yeah it made a difference on my moral for working for those two different companies.
As much as everyone hates them though, I would probably counteract the really nice breakroom with a drive thru. This is America and everyone wants convenience.

Agree with this. I worked at Target as an intern and they have huge break rooms with TVs, a ton of fridges, vending machines. On holidays they would have delicious food catered. It was cleaned daily.

At CVS we got a closet with a folding table and crappy chair. The break room was disgusting and never cleaned.

I agree with this too.i interned at Kroger. Kroger had a good break room with booths instead of chairs, a TV, fridge, and vending machine.

What exactly is a break room? I hear some other employees whispering about something called that but I have yet to see this mystical place for myself.
