Its an alright work place

Indeed Featured review

Much better than the job I was previously at. however depending on the location or management or how you perform, you're forced into roles that arent what you are getting paid to do. For example, hired as a front of staff ending up with management responsibilities.

Bells and Whistles with stuff all in between

Management seemed more concerned with profits and protocol than care and efficiency of staff; hard workers get penalised or fired whilst the slackers seem to get priority despite the high standards and face value the company claims to represent to reflect. Incompetent and indifferent management; particularly from Indian members of staff.


It's a job..

Its not that good

As much as i loved my on the floor team and the friends i made, some of the pharmacists and management made different people feel belittled.When you're unable to work you're made feel bad too

I Enjoyed working with the staff.

I have always enjoyed Pharmacy work and getting to know the customers. I felt comfortable in my employment. I learn a lot through doing courses, merchandising and learning about medication. It is also rewarding helping out people and know you have made there day by giving advice on products.

Fun place to work

Worked for 10+ years. easy work. sometimes management can be difficult due to it changing often but team is often experienced. Lots of goodies when working there.

Relaxed workplace with nice team members

Relaxed workplace with nice and helpful team members. Good management team. Trainings (products) provided from time to time which helps all team members to get to know more about the products

Amazing environment with subpar management

Whilst I loved the people I worked with and the general nature, management at this store was very harsh, and always targeted casual workers like myself who worked less than others. Got sacked for an unexplained reason even though the day prior was praised immensely and even discussed an increase in my role responsibilities, and was then ghosted following me reaching out.


Staff discount, great people


Awful management

Good and Bad

Liked the employees. They would rather hire more people then train the ones they have. Being on the register sucked. Hard to know where you stand with management

worst workplace culture I've ever seen. staff are wannabe mean girls clique

Was good the first 2 weeks then everyone showed their true colours. Staff members who are mostly all female act like they're still in high school and are very neglecting of new employees. poor management and zero communication skills in the workplace. hours worked are always taken away which means you are underpaid. they will set you up for failure and won't give proper training.. after hours of work an employee will claim you haven't done anything for no particular reason.

Priceline Pharmacy Forest Hill

This Job honestly isn’t worth it. At the start they make you feel welcome but after 3 or more weeks they make you feel worthless and like you aren’t competent at your job. the job is fast paced but they give you a million and one jobs to do at once and get mad when it isn’t done. they do not care about family emergency’s or anyone having covid as long as it brings in the $$$. the poor mental health i had when leaving was not worth my time there. i never felt appreciated in the slightest. definitely consider your mental health before joining here. the only pro was the handful of friendships i made here.

Overworked and treated poorly

Very fast paced which is good always lots of things to do except they expect you to do 3 peoples work load and you are yelled at if you don’t finish it. Not allowed to take your breaks if you haven’t finished the job you are mid way through doing even though there’s plenty of staff that could take over or you can finish it after your break. No good for people entering into the pharmacy field you can’t ask questions without being screamed at. Very hard to learn new things as no one wants to help you without being nasty and frustrated with you. They’ll target employees bully them and bully anyone else who is nice to them. Not worth the minimum wage you will be paid.




Bully environment, rude staff, poor management.

Fired me with no warning because I ‘asked for help too many times’

I just got fired because I apparently was not progressing enough only because I had to ask a few times how to do something in an area of the store I wasn’t very familiar with yet. I was fired with literally no warning during a ‘work review’, without a concrete excuse just a bunch of petty reasons that were honest mistakes despite never receiving any actual complaints when I was making them. I think they just hired me because they couldn’t find anyone else with more experience at the time and got rid of me as soon as my three month prohibition was up. It was honestly cruel and I’m very shocked, I didn’t expect being treated like that but I guess some people are just like that and will pretend to care just to get something out of you. Anyone else reading this please beware of employers doing this! Its not ok!Also some of the pharmacists were quite cold and condescending and made me feel uncomfortable and judged. The environment definitely felt a bit artificial when it came to staff interactions. I thought I was doing a good job, I enjoyed my interactions with the customers alot and a majority of them were very kind, some of the staff members were easy to get along with and positive to be around but in general I felt very unappreciated by the company (other than those few nice staff members)I just never really felt like they were enthusiastic about me being there other than at the start and only felt that the retail supervisors went out of their way to make me feel supported

Good job as a student, but no career progression

If you're a student (particularly if you're studying medical science or pharmacy), working for Priceline is a good place to gain customer service and healthcare experience. The best thing about the job is the team- having good co-workers makes working in retail enjoyable. The hours are flexible and easily accomodate a uni schedule, but the pay isn't great (i.e. minimum wage). Unless you want a career in retail or pharmacy, there are very few opportunities for career progression. Some of the companies (e.g. Blackmores, Natio etc...) do offer training days, but the workplace doesn't pay for you to attend them. Overall, I enjoyed my time working for Priceline... But, I can't imagine myself working there forever.

Fast paced, lovely girls on floor but…..

Lovely customers and girls on the floor are lovely to work with but you are just a number. Under paid for what you do. White coats and dispensary are always treated differently to the other staff. To much work with to short of time to complete. Unrealistic KPIs. Management try their best but owners do not care. It used to be a family first company but now all about the profits. Not paid for time you actually worked only rostered hours.


Under paid

Wouldn’t Recommend

Overworked with ridiculously high expectations on staff. Very high stress environment with minimal training and support. Poor culture with rude and unprofessional management.


Hard to think of any

Interesting and rewarding job

Loved working with medicine and learning something new everyday but it’s a shame manger to had to ruin it for me. When I raised issues it never mattered and many customers could visibly see this and would make comments. The manager had made many people leave due to the treatment of the employees.


Enjoyed the job itself and people I worked with

Unfair treatment, ridiculous expectations with minimal staff on the day

What you see on the outside is all for show, hard to trust staff in this workplace, management is terrible which results in the store looking terrIble. No clear instructions to daily tasks, unfair treatment to staff only to benefit management, staff members blamed for things they aren’t involved in. Training procedures are useless. Shame that a place like Priceline should be a great company to work for, even with their new rebranding but diversity is still lacking and it doesn’t look like anyone is going to do anything about it anytime soon.


Nice staff discount


Terrible Management

Iove priceline corporate store

I worked at priceline Belmont WA for 11 years and loved it most of the time. Depending on who your manager is makes alot of difference. Had some horrid managers but also had fab ones. Made some lovely friends and absolutely miss working at the company store. Totally different culture to working at a Priceline pharmacy. Fun to work at and love the products. Treated well .


Great place to work.


Some lazy staff members

Productive and enjoyable

My day at work was assisting customers, cleaning up around the store, putting new stock up and serving customers at the counter. It was a fun and enjoyable environment. I enjoyed working with my colleagues and enjoyed going to work.
