Depends who the owner is

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It really comes down to who the owner is and which store you are at with any pharmacy job you are going to walk into.. always be open minded and look at the big picture

Pros

Home time and staff discount

Cons

Retail manager lazy as.. owner having no idea how to run a business and still doesn’t.

Management is horrible

I originally enjoyed working at Priceline but as the management constantly changed, I found it increasingly biased and the work culture was terrible. Managers blame you for their incompetency and constantly pit you against your co workers making it a stressful and competitive work environment that is unsuitable for employees to work together comfortably. When issues arise between staff members, the management is unable to resolve the problem and attempts to force employees to pretend everything is fine. Nevertheless, if you can put up with the terrible management and unnecessary stress, the job is fairly easy to pick up and pays well above the national wage.

Pros

Pays well

Cons

Terrible and poor management

One of the best jobs I’ve had. Great company to work for they support their staff ensuring product is available and signage and promotional materials and products are all regularly updated which supports the sales staff in securing sales.

fun job but management is a mess and actively damage the success of the employees and company

two years ago this was a dynamic and thriving company but due to micromanagement and an excessive desire to cut costs and company along with the happiness of the employees and customers has gone downhill, i really hope Priceline can gain what it lost back.

Fun starting workplace

This was my first proper Job. I had an amazing manager and enjoyed working there. I learnt how to work in retail here, how to deal with customers and how to manage my money. I made great friends here too. I was here for 3 years and a typical day involved stocking shelves, working on the till, and cleaning up rubbish. The culture was like a fairly standard pharmacy environment, very friendly. The hardest part of the job was rude customers.

Pros

Amazing management, staff discounts

Cons

Rude customers, short shifts

Productive work place

I had a great experience working for your company. My only issue was with 1 staff member who would constantly condescend me. I believe she was the reason I lost my job, as manager of skin care I was blamed for the 2 times that there was an incorrect price tag underneath the products on self and both situations occurred while I was on break or not rostered on. So I couldn’t help the situations but was let go because both times the products were sold for the lesser price that the customer believed to be correct. I understand being in charge of skincare hold me responsible but didn’t expect to be fired. As I was extremely thorough when we did price changes and would check every day over products and their advertised price. I believe my college 1 aisle over was tampering with my tags as a way to get me into trouble and put me in a bad light with my boss.

Pros

Close to home

Cons

Challenging working with a bully

Stand out

Working hard for a pay rise across nine years to get a new role which pays less than before and yet a promotion into management. Well done Priceline, you don't know how to encourage good workers to stay onboard. Retaining high skilled employment doesn't seem a priority at all, and it leaves there "first class service" as a competitive angle, empty.

Straightforward job at a chemist

Working at a chemist required an understanding of the products in order to provide feedback and advice to customers. I learned how to socialize usefully and professionally with customers. Working on the floor involved stocking shelves and making each aisle presentable, which gave me skills in multitasking. In being a chemist, it was important to provide customers with the best advice for their health. The hardest part of the job was being asked very specific questions about products that I may have needed more experience to answer with. The most enjoyable part was helping customers.

Pros

Discounts, friendly co-workers

Cons

spending an entire shift at the register

Teamwork

It doesn’t feel like you are working when you work in an environment that feels like home and have colleagues who treat you like family. I do grow old with you; Priceline Pharmacy World Square.

Pros

Get to see, touch and feel new product before it goes on the floor in public

Cons

Salaries

Its ok..

I have worked at Priceline for 6 years now for different owners. It is obviously easier at some stores then others. Its usually constantly a busy store. Pros - Friends - Meeting new customers - Working with new products - Building rapport with customers Cons - Management/owners can be hard - You get put on shifts not in your workplace agreement and are expected to do the shift - Minimum wage - Have to seek most knowledge yourself - Expected to assist in areas that are not your department
