    I have recently transferred into PharmD program at MCPHS. I am going to start third year PharmD program this fall.

    I have never worked in a pharmacy before, I was just wondering which company (like Rite Aid, CVS, or hospital) pays the most money to third-year students?

    Hospitals definitely pay the most from what you listed. I know someone at St. Vincent's Hospital who makes $22/hr as a tech.

    It depends from area to area. You should ask around. From what I know, Walgreens in San Diego pays the highest.

    How long has that person been a tech at that hospital and what other certifications/qualifications does that person have over the regular tech? I doubt very seriously that any place would hire on a tech for other than a head tech/tech manager position for more than $15 an hour unless the competition is extremely high for techs or the cost of living is so high in the area, which would not make the $22 an hour any better than $15.
