four years ago an rx-exa got promoted to manage the store i was in, i was the exa. i carried the store while i was there--you see he didn't want to get dirty and do the work that needed to be done. managing a store is not walking around with a telxon in you hand. right after he got promoted, our exa evaluations came back. i was reading mine and he was reading his--mine was so much better than his, he stopped telling me what his manager wrote. he only got promoted because of the salary he made as an exa--you can't hide that kind of salary in a store where the figures count. and isn't it great how rx-exa's are "tested" in the brand new stores, not the ones where you really have to work. he had to leave the store he was in because it was 3 years old and the numbers were going to matter, and no other manager in a newer store wanted him. sad isn't it.
Managers practicing pharmacy without a degree or licensure? The NABP (national association of pharmacy boards) has been around since 1907, and licensure along with that. The degree's have changed, but the basic law hasn't. What this company needs is employees doing their job. Not bitching about what everybody else makes. Doing your job, and doing it right will make this a better company and make us stand out from the rest of this sector. Too bad the analysts can't see that. I also haven't look at this board in about a week, not much changed i see. Guess i'll go back to doing my job. Go Wags.
just be glad you don't work for him....at least you and me can sleep at night.....we seem to have well rounded lives...... the pedestal he is on makes his perception of life at walgreens as simple as this: walgreens has two types of employees.......pharmacists and pharmacist wannabees.............................he has no clue that I am complaining because all I want is a fair playing field.......the best test of fairness is to reverse the roles....when I suggest that to him, instead of him saying ok lets analyze the situation, his only response is "go to rx school",,,or"keep reading your exa books"......HE SUCKS AS A MOTIVATOR....he ends postings by saying good luck or hope you get your store soon, but only after spouting about how great he is and how much the rest of us non rx employees suck and are jealous......go ahead drugrunner,,,reread your postings and tell me I am wrong.
pharmacy sales are increasing 18% but margins are going down.......non pharmacy sales are increasing 10% but margins are going up...........you can have your 18% growth--your departments bottom line contributions to the company continue to decrease......my 10% growth equates to increasing bottom line contributions to the company.........................IF THE PHARMACY WAS A STAND ALONE BUSINESS, AT A 20% MARGIN , WALGREENS WOULD BE LOSING MONEY.....PERIOD....guess being in the pharmacy doesn't really drive the company after all.
