The Best Way to Start your Career as a Pharmacy Tech.
Updated: Jun 17, 2020
In my opinion, working in a retail pharmacy is the easiest and the best way to start your career as a pharmacy tech. Especially, if you choose to not attend a formal Pharmacy Tech training program. In retail, you will learn the fundamentals that will help you succeed as you progress in your career.
You will learn how to......
Prepare and Fill Prescriptions
Receive and Confirm Prescription Orders
Process Insurance Claims and
Perform Inventory Management
You will also start to develop or master your skills in Customer Service, Time Management, Communication and Organization. Those are also important skills to have. After you gain experience in a retail pharmacy, the opportunities in pharmacy are endless.
Almost 11 years ago I started my career at CVS Pharmacy. It was one the best decisions that I have ever made.
