Good work culture

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It's always busy everyday from open til close, even when we close for lunch time.working environment is good, colleagues are supportive, bonus is VERY good.The number is script is DOUBLED in a few years but number of staff still remain the same and more services and targets for the public are asked by the company. No replacement of staff since the nomad lady left, because they won't offer anymore than minimum wage.

Always work under pressure .. don’t give enough staff for all the work that’s expected of you !

No help from area managers Staff leave and don’t get replaced Don’t get paid enough for the job we do !!Just get paid 10p over minimum wage Not enough for the amount of work we do

Pros

50% discount in shop buy no stock as don’t have time to put shop orders out

Cons

Have to get back on that

Good place

Did work experience and the management were really welcoming and friendly. They encouraged me to step out if my comfort zone and allowed me to engage in new and unfamiliar experiences.

Awful company

Money grabbing and badly structured. Don’t care about how their staff live just want sign ups of new patients however they can get them. Management are that backwards they spread rumours shop to shop to see how scared they can make their teams about their jobs.

Pros

if you’re pretty you might get to go to a conference

Cons

work wasnt too bad. the environment was

management was horrible. gossip deteriorated my mental health. constant eyes on me i felt uncomfortable going to work. i would be ridiculed on doing the things i was taught by the management. i didn't mind the work. It was just too much stress on and pressure on being perfect. such a great opportunity for me but i had to quit. very strict.

Pay is to low

Earn more working in a supermarket. To little pay for the amount of work expected. Other than that very good company. Bonus goes down every year. The pay rises are a few pennys more if your lucky.

Very busy but fun to work there

I’ve just been promoted to assistant manager and can say that although it is very busy we are still able to have some fun. All in all a great place to work.

Learned a lot

Not good paying but it’s a good experience to build up your knowledge and experience ….. However over the time I’ve felt that I’m just doing the same thing and it became a bit boring for me

Great for progressing but stressful

Always willing to progress your career and move you up through the qualifications but most shops are understaffed and in disarray. Constantly behind, lack of a regular pharmacist meaning constantly playing catch up and walking into a mess

Bad management

Very bad management, no help when people are off sick or on holidays. Everyone treated differently and obvious favourites with management. Always gossiping about other staff.

Pros

Nothing

Nice branch

I worked in a good branch but other shops are always behind on work and are always asking for staff. Wage is shocking and they care more about profit than patients. Most colleges are nice but there is a lot of gossip and telltale’s.

Pros

Conference 30% staff discount Progression but only in branch

Cons

Minimum pay Long hours 9am-6pm Expect too much Hounding about targets

Busy but friendly

These are very busy pharmacies and most of the time you are left to the day to day activities with not much support from senior management, it seems the more you can do, the more is expected of you and you don’t often get to do your job role. It is what you make of it and can be a lovely place to work.

Pros

Not too strict

Cons

Lots of training

Enjoyable happy work environment

Can 100 percent say that I absolutely love/loved working for day lewis , such a great company, fun , happy job role , learnt so much , great family run company , probably the hardest part is working when short staffed it can be stressful but the customers make up for that

Pros

Good discounts

Cons

None

Fast-paced but challenging, and no time to slack off.

A typical day would involve arriving for your shift, being advised what the priority tasks were for the day, and then starting the work. There was a break after a couple of hours, and then if the first task had been completed you would be asked to help out with anything else that needed to be done. Lunch was usually a couple of hours after the first break, and there was another short break before the evening shift. Once all the daily tasks had been completed, you were at liberty to sign off for the day.

Pros

Onsite canteen

Cons

Repetitive work.

Horrible place to work

If you don't fit in you'r out they run a bully system if management doesn't like you they find any reason to sack you. Worst I've ever worked for steer clear.!!!!!!! If your liked one member of staff continually says 'love you' it's pathetic. Customers are all lovely just a shame about the staff who also tell lies about you in order to get you fired. 😟😖☹☹☹☹☹☹☹☹🤪🤪🤪😠😬😬😬💀☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩
