Certified Pharmacy Technician

May 2018 • Princeton, NJ

What I liked

Working as a pharmacy technician my second year of college was really helpful to me, as it introduced me to the material I would be studying. I got to familiarize myself with the medications and policies that I am now learning about as a third year pharmacy student.

What I wish was different

It was really difficult at first to adapt to such a fast pace environment, so I wish my training had been to shadow another technician instead of trial and error.

Advice

Apply to multiple locations, be prepared to work in a fast pace retail setting, and always ask questions if you are unsure of the proper procedures!

Custer Service

February 2015 • Rochester, NY

What I liked

I have been there for almost 5 years now so I think what keeps me is the people. The ability to interact with the same amazing team has bolstered my experience and has given me a place where I could grow as a person.

What I wish was different

I wish I had gotten into the pharmacy and could have learned more about drugs to better prepare myself for PA school.

Advice

Not being afraid to seek more. I learned that if you want to learn something, do something new or move up, the best thing to do is ask because these things aren’t just given to you, you need to take initiative for yourself and seek your own opportunities.
