Wondering if anyone can advise if it's better to work in a grocery store pharmacy or a mass general retail store pharmacy as a pharmacy technician and why?

That's not an easy question to answer because of the subjectivity of the question. It all comes down to personal choice. Some find it easier and like it more in a hospital or at a major chain. It all depends on you and what you will like or put up with. You won't know until you try it. A lot of it comes down to company policy and the people you work with.

i guess to clarify, i was wondering about the foot traffic between the two. it seems like people are more likely to drop off their prescriptions at a general store vs a grocery store.

so it seems as if working in a grocery would have less customers and work to do than at a mass retailer.

however i'm a guy and i hardly buy groceries, that could lead to my being biased
