    Know what you're getting into guys. Be prepared to pursue other field of pharmacy like ambulatory care and hospital. I never thought i'll see WAGs do this. Kroger started this week and now WAGS are changing stores to either 9-9 or cutting 9-9 stores down to only 1 full time Pharmacy manager and less than 40 hours for staff. This is not looking good.

    It is also very hard to land a job in hospital setting unless you have residency. Even if you do residency, at some areas, it's extremely competitive to get in hospital also. Hospital jobs are only around 20-25% of the majority job pool. So good luck!

    If there is a demand for round the clock open your own.
