Stressful and fast paced

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A new system has come into place in lloyds pharmacies which is more complicated than the old system and its a very stressful place to work in . No support is given by the company when you are short staffed

Stressful and overworked

Long hours, low staffing levels, basic pay. Difficult and stressful working environment with little support from higher management. Very target driven with no support to actually achieve them.

Awful

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Extremely hostile environment.

● Zero training offered to new starters.● Customers mocked in ear shot.● No help from other employee's or management.● Humiliated infront of customers on multiple occasions.● Incredibly unprofessional staff. Feels more like a clicky popular girls club.

Pros

Hours and days off are ideal.

Cons

Literally everything else about this place was awful.

Rubbish company

I worked for them for 3 months and they were terrible to work for, I have had some rubbish employers in the past but these take the biscuit, management was dismal, the higher up you went the worse they were, would not recommend this place to anyone!!! Came home crying way too much, and was a waste of 3 months of my life. Even when I did over time and worked my myself to the bone and they were ungrateful. Other staff only stay as it is convenient and near where they live

Pros

None

Cons

Long hours with no appreciation

They don’t care about staff

Poor pay and large workload. Website, system and process issues. Put you on courses then don’t give you support and time to complete them. They don’t care about staff. Friction between departments.

Underpaid and overlooked.

Take a job here if you wish to go without pay and then get blamed for not having received your pay and get no support from your manager or anyone else in the company for that matter. Disgusting.

Good company, fast paced, great holiday entitlement

I enjoy working for Lloyds Pharmacy the company offers a competitive wage compared with other pharmacies I have worked. There is overtime available should you wish to do more hours and working in other branches is an option. There is opportunities to gain new skills with regular learning available. As with all pharmacies it is quite a fast paced role where you will need to multi task but if you enjoy working in pharmacy the company is a good place to work. Being a large company they have a good HR department always on hand to offer support where needed. I have worked for a few multiples and independent pharmacies but prefer working with Lloyds. They offer 5 weeks holiday entitlement plus bank holidays for all staff and a company discount of 10%. I would recommend this company.

Ex pharmacy assistant

When I first joined the company , we were fully trained, supported by our management teams had pharmacist who were regular and customers had a familiar face they trusted , the stores were well stocked , and customers were well catered for, then they changed to the EPN style of store and that’s when it all came apart , we were told as employees if we didn’t like the changes we could leave , it because profit lead no consideration to the local areas needs , the focus was on selling higher priced skin care etc , yes there were staff who were trained in main areas , skin , pain ,diabetes but when they left the training stopped , management decided to customers to sign up to the pharmacy ordering their medication, then that got out of control, and we then had angry, frustrated abusive cues of customers constantly complaining and rightly so that there medication wasn’t ready on time as we’d promised on sign up that it would be , then there was a high level of experienced staff leaving , no time allocated to order of stock the store , I absolutely loved my job in the beginning would be with the company now if not for the changes and disrespect from our then management team who also constantly left and changed , and I know my colleagues would of stayed too as we meet regularly and are still friends .

Unproductive

This company really drained me not felt appreciated at all other staff are bully’s and management ignore this pharmacists are great but it’s not a company you can stay with as has a very high turnover of staff

Company Decline

My regional manager (RM) did not care about my store. This lead to staff leaving because they did not feel appreciated, increasing the workload for the ones left because the RM could not get anyone in. It is safe to say that the problem lies within the management of the business and those above the RM.Some points for improvements include:-the company’s disregard for their employees and the lack thereof of our hard work, -removing privileges such as bonuses for MyLearn tasks (other companies pay for the time used for e-learning),-having no incentives to go above and beyond for our workplace,-no acknowledgement and celebration for years of service.

Supportive management

I didn’t come from a pharmaceutical background but was provided with all the training and support to ensure I was confident in my role of assisting others on the shop floor.

Nice people but awful management

Had no sleep for four years. Constantly under pressure to take on new tasks with no training. Their lack of staff indicates how staff are valued. Did not feel secure.
