Pharmacy Technician Intern

June - July 2019 • Cerritos, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed the patience the pharmacists and other technicians had with me. In comparison to pharmacy technician courses, this is much more real and serious. The experience was great, I feel that I learned to be very comfortable with Walgreen's computer systems and process of filling medications.

What I wish was different

Advice

Study the common medications and medical abbreviations you learned in pharmacy tech courses. It is so useful!!!!

Certified Pharmacy Technician

September 2014 • Springfield, OR

What I liked

I enjoyed helping patients on the other end of the medical side. I get to talk with them about medications they need, are taking, or have stopped. We keep up with medicine that is late to be picked up so that they don't run out. I like helping patients who are equally educated on their well being!

What I wish was different

I like the job I do, so when I have the free time I work as much as possible. However, when I am a full time student I don't work as much so I do lose time with patients and learning more about everyday work in a pharmacy.

Advice

I would like to share the fact that pharmacy work I believe, is just as necessary as medical work because we are the other end of the "healing." Its constantly busy, fulling about 450-500 scripts a day and also administering immunizations! I do think it needs to be valued at the same scale as a doctors office or hospital!

Pharmacy Technician

June 2016 - August 2019 • Cartersville, GA

What I liked

I liked that I learned about many medications and what they do and how the prescription gets processed. As a prospective med school student it made me aware to the issues I will need to address to make sure all prescriptions for patients are processed safely and efficiently.

What I wish was different

The pace was very quick with drive Thru service and I wish I had worked more outside of the drive Thru talking to patients in the store.

Advice

It’s very fast paced, you are on your feet for the day, you learn a lot of information, and you’ll be working in a team oriented environment so you need to be working together and it’s important to help other technicians if you are free. There is always something to do and help with!
