    What do pharmacy technicians and/or pharmacy sales associates at walgreens and cvs pharmacies wear? This may be sort of a weird question but I want to know before working there. (Plain curiosity)

    I work at walgreens and usually wear black/grey/any other color pants with a sweater/top.. the top really doesnt matter coz u get to wear that white smock on top so most of its covered anyways

    I work at CVS and wear black pants, gym shoes, and a fitted shirt (it's what I'm most comfortable in). I've seen other people wear scrubs, sweat pants, pajama pants, etc. It doens't matter what you wear at the store where I work.

    I work at CVS and we have to wear a shirt and tie and slacks (that is what is required for males). we also wear the white coat, so most of it is covered. Which is nice if you forget to iron ;)

    They're not super strict on it, as I've worn a CVS polo shirt from time to time, but the tie is technically required... so you just hope a big wig doesn't come in when you're wearing not a shirt and tie.

    I usually wear khakis and brown docs with it.

    I work at a walgreen's and a shirt and tie is required. I usually wear tennis shoes too, just because you are on your feet for the entire 8 hour shift.

    I work at CVS. Females dress business casual (khaki pants or dress pants), but no scrubs or cargo pants. Males have to wear button up shirt and tie. We can wear tennis shoes. And ofcourse, we wear lab coats.

    at CVS i usually wear khaki's with a dress shirt and tie..top that off with sneakers or my personal fav. hush puppies! :) and of course a lab jacket

    i would not like walgreens' attire very much..that little white vest is pretty gay IMHO.

    As an intern at walgreens you wear the pharmacist jacket, not the vest.

    That's awesome! Do you suggest working during your first year? Or should we get used to the program and work in the second year. I'm thinking of doing the latter.

    I can't speak for Pat, but I would recommend working right off the bat, because, at least here, the first year is actually easier than the 2nd, in terms of how much learning there is. I'm frightened by next fall's schedule, it's ridiculous
