Productive work place

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Here, you can learn a lot of work culture and patient satisfaction. Management is little bit strict and stringent. Most difficult and hardest part of job is standing for long hours.

Challenging , exciting , loved working there . But not for women with babies.Not that it’s impossible, but often your mental peace gets affected .

I enjoyed working there as I love challenges. I joined there as I had no option but life pharmacy (I didnot have DHA by then), but once I joined starting liking the work ,enjoyed interacting with customers , loved trying to finish given target.Most happiest thing for me was I started loving knowing new information about medicines , I felt blessed when customers come back to me and say the drug I gave them as OTC worked really good for them . My husband is also in sales field ,he comes late at night .so it was difficult for us to find a baby sitter who could look after our kid till 12-1am .

Pros

Except cons (mentioned below ) I enjoyed working in life pharmacy .

Cons

Keep on transferring stores, and timing was affecting my personal life as I had baby . If you don’t have a baby, then without any issues you can work .

Not happy with superiors and hr as well.

Normal if you are in the outlet. They dont care for you. Management like hr are annoying. They will pressure for ordering and demand you to do it else...im just not happy in my experience as merchandiser in life pharmacy because there is no equality when it comes to salary.

Family business, hence too much involvement of father and son, no respect for all employees, low wage workers, their time given to the company.

They will charge for visa expenses even if you leave before 2 or more years and label it as a training expense. (I did not get any form of training as HR personnel and still they didn't pay my last salary of 16Days)They have a very bad policy of internship for pharmacists and , like you do not get paid and overworked long hours. if you decide not to proceed with the job offer, which is really low you do not get an internship completion letter. This is essential for licensing purposes. Work-life balance goes for a toss, and a single mistake can cost you your job!!...

For starters

for beginners this will be the best opportunity to work, they will mold you to be a hard working person not everyone can continue in life but if you think working in life is simple you might be a person who can survive anywhere'only challenges makes a man perfect'life pharmacy is like a university with payment i am working in there as a trainee sales associate for 2 months yes, its a stressfull environment but worth it

Pros

pantry, staff discount, product knowledge

Cons

No guarantee for the employees, they will terminate you if they saw any negligence

Stressful environment indeed .

Don’t work if you dint do your proper research about this company, the management is pathetic and Hr are least bothered . They only know how to deduct your salary and deductions if you are late by two minutes . The only one thing good was product knowledge and constant training .

Bad experience

Worst company. They cut my salary of last month because i had to leave the company due to health issues. Worst management. Cuts payment even you are 1 min late for job. Had very bad experience at work. Had to stand whole 9 hours. No proper break time. Sometimes you wont get weekoff also.

Cons

Long hours

Best place to learn

I have been working with LIFE for 2.8 years and I could say this is the best place to learn this industry, and don't stick there unless you're not pharma background or if you don't get any salary hike as per your skills and qualifications.

Pros

Learning

Cons

Unwanted salary deduction ( not in all the months )
