Productive work place

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.

Learning experience

Fast paced competitive environment.. you learn every single day. Only con is the stress and work life balance. Once you are trained in LIFE every other job is a cake walk

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!!...

It's a challenging place to work. However, you can learn a lot and expand your knowledge and experience. Candidate should be ready to stand for long hours. 9-10 Hours shift/day, ready to work in the holidays or weekends.

Pros

Opportunity to Grow

Cons

Long Hours, some difficult policies

If you work in this company you will loose your self confidence and if you experience than you can join this company

If you work in this company you will loose your self confidence and if you experience than you can join this company. Working staff are good but in working time we can't sit even 10 min because company will never provide chairs in to the pharmacy.

One of the worst company that I have ever been worked

The people and it's management does not have any respect over your humanity. they will let you feel worse than a slave. you will loose your self respect and everything you have. DO NOT EVER ATTEMPT TO WORK WITH THIS COMPANY IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOURSELF SANE. 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

Pros

many offers, good services to customers

Cons

long hours continues standing, no chairs, very very poor HR, Purposefully delaying visa procedures, they will charge the over stay fine from the employee even if it's their mistakes, don't know how to manage the employees

Productive, Challenging work culture and Excellent management

I was working in this company for more than 4 years in a busy store. Work culture is challenging and demanding. Company is so big that anyone is replaceable. But they maintain hardworking and loyal employees. Happening and interesting work place. Work pressure is more but growth is rest assured with increased pressure. I have to be competent to survive. You have to ask for benefits at times. There is no politics. Your deeds are watched, reviewed by multiple departments. You are answerable for your mistakes ofcourse. But explain professionally and face challenges, you will be justified. Supportive management with high amount of attention to detail. HR is professional and friendly. Some of them are not approachable and make you feel like you are not answered.

The worst work environment ever

Illegal employment practices. Worst work ethics. Will not commit to a secure employment - micromanagement at its worst - Will track your time out even if you step down. DO NOT WORK HERE!

Cons

long hours, micromanagement, no work/life balance, no friendly faces
