Very stressful . Less salary, no week off.Micromanage is bad, Management care very less of their staff. Customers are condescending and entitled to a fault.

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!!...

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 )

Overworked and weekly off is cancelled all the time

There is only 2 good thing in this company and the rest is bad. Super strict, form time to time they are checking cctv and they installed microphone for some stores. Their policy is always changing and no proper documentation of it. Being a trainee takes more than 1 year and worst 2 years. The salary is not fair for the workload we are doing. This is how they overworked us DHA Pharmacist they would let to work for straight 18 hours just because they cannot give extra staff it happens to many stores it's crazy and staffs cannot get their regular off until 2-3 weeks sometimes 1 month we are working straight. In the end they are blaming us coz we cannot hit our target. 2 good thing. At least our salary is on time, no problem and somehow we are learning product knowledge.

Great work experience, but the salary isn't too lucrative

Management is great and the work experience is valuable. The salary should be revised especially for pharmacists and higher ranked officers. The work load is high paced and requires great attention.

Worst company with horrible management, HR and manager.

Worst company to work. Please DONT work with this company. All employees are treated unprofessionally. Working culture is horrible. HR doesn't even know how to behave professionally. If you sent an email professional they will take it in a negative and say you are demanding and all. They can't even read and understand a professional email or letter.If you ask about your JB or contract, they will say you are very rude and demanding. They dont even understand it is the employee's right to know. They will hold the employee's passports with them and treat them as salves. If they want to terminate an employee they will force the employee to resign so that they don't want to give the compensation as per the UAE law. They will threaten the employee with all the horrible things they can do and force the to employee resign. About the managers in the company, they think that they own their subordinates.They will harrass you, make you work like salves, they make your life horrible. I strongly believe labour law personnel should visit the company and take a review from the employees and take a strict action against the company.

Pros

Nothing, not even job satisfaction

Cons

Harrassment, unprofessionalism

Worst institution to work

Pathetic management with least humanity. Each and every employee is having different protocols. Treats Indian employees just like slaves. No transportation allowances or food. They provide accommodation but it is a trap. It will be the worst accommodation you will ever get in UAE with unhygenic conditions. No ethics and everything is business. Even if you passed MOH from India and directly recruited to this pharmacy, you won't be able to work as a pharmacist in UAE. Even after one year they will make you work as their trainee slave doing vitamin sampling and other most unprofessional tasks that benefits only the company's profit. You won't be getting any straight shifts. Only thing guaranteed is stress, tiredness, harassment. According to me, life will be totally ruined in life and it should be your last most option in life.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

No straight shifts, no transportation allowance, immediate transfer to another outlet

ATTITUDE OF EVERYONE INCLUDING THE MANAGEMENT ARE THE WORST AMONG THE WORST!!! the management will offer many things, but they will not execute any one them. They don't know how to manage and motivate staff. very worst working environment. HR department is very very bad Simply they are trying to cut off the salary and benefits without proper justification and reason
