In these times, it's hard to find a job! The market is oversaturated now with the economy making big corporations cut hours and decrease hiring and schools churning out more students than ever. Question: An independent that I interviewed with was offering $30/hour! Unbelievably low compared to retail chains. Everything about it sounds good; great hours M-F 9-5pm Sat 9-12pm. I'd have off every other Friday/Saturday. It's located in a medical office with peds, dentist and family practice. Avg script count is 120/day. No benefits though except for 1 week paid vacation and increase in vacation pay with tenure. This is in Illinois. Is this too low, or are a lot of you getting the same type of offers. The owner said that a few years ago he had to decrease pay to this rate because of the economy. He has four other locations, I am assuming the Rph's there also get the same pay. Please respond and let me know what competition is offering. I feel as though, nowadays pharmacists are getting paid more to just verify than to do anything else so $30 is decent but I really don't want to be underpaid for my services!
