Have you ever worked with a Pharmacist you did not like? What didn't you like about them?
I have worked with many pharmacists in 15 plus years and I never had a problem with any pharmacist.
All pharmacist I have worked with has helped me to understand the principle and management of scientific equipment and raw material pertaining to the manufacturing of drugs.
The pharmacist put more pressure on me, but I was able to handle it and just did my work and anything she asked I provided to her.
They told me I couldn't take drugs.
To tell you the truth, I have worked with a pharmacist that I did not like very much at first but after Working with her for a long period of time I started to focus on the good things about her. She was very belittling to other co-workers but was also a very hard worker and reliable. - she also took time to teach me things, which I appreciated. I believe that people are put in your life for a reason .
I have never worked in a pharmacy before. I don't tend to dislike people. Everyone is different and its about getting along with everyone to the best of your ability.
No... I like all of the pharmacist that I have worked.. They treated me nicely and professionally.
I've been in the situation where I've been with a bit of a bossy pharmacist.. Where they ask you. To do things that they can't be bothered doing themselves.. Like grabbing things for them. . More of a dogsbody than a fellow college.. Just deal with it though I'm quite easygoing and I like being helpful. So it doesn't bother me too much.
I have not worked as a pharmacist. B
Yes, but I still work with her professionally and to challenge my self to do better my work.
Well, I really try to find good in everyone and something to like. One pharmacist was quick to judge, and easily irritated. He would talk down to you and treat you like you were stupid if you made a mistake or did something in a way he did not like.
I tend to not pass immediate judgement of character. I have never not gotten along with a coworker.
Yes, they were disrespectful but I managed to change their mind once they saw my performance on the job.
Yes, they treated me like I was inferior.
Profesionalism is the pefect behavior in this instance.
No I never had a problem.
I have worked with a pharmacist I did not see eye to eye with, they came in as a new manager and changed everything while also taking away responsibilities.
I am fortunate to have not worked with a pharmacist that I did not like.
Well at work, not everyone is likely to get along. However, I always treat everyone I come into contact with with dignity and respect.
Fortunately for me, I have not come across one and hope that I will not have to face that because that can be very uncomfortable coming to work. I beleve strong and positive communication will lead to positive working relationship.
No, I have worked well with Pharmacists. There has always been mutual respect between the Pharmacists and me.
Everyone can not get on all the time, if there is any tiffs then these need to be overcome quickly, most of the time a problem can be easily solved I haven't had any serious problems with any member of staff, if I was to then I would contact the person in charge.
No. I try to like everyone, if someone doesn't like me then that's their problem with me and not my problem with them, but I will continue to maintain a professional work relationship in order to meet the demands of the service user.
I like all pharmacist they are very professional, nice people with me.
Pharmacist who was stressed as she was snowed under with screening prescriptions.... Attitude was a bit snappy but I was able to understand why and carried on with my work.
Yes I have. She would always threaten to fire me if and have my license revoked if I didn't do her job for her.
I just do my job not emotions attached anyone who dislikes me or not.
Unfortunately yes, I was told that my job was to do everything, and they only had to sign off on scripts, and council patients. I had never felt so low.
All pharmacists I've worked with are amazing. Some are not perfect, but I dont like to judge. You never know what some people are going through that certain day or in general.
I've worked with a pharmacist whom we did not always see eye to eye. She is new to the work field and she doesnt like to take advice from some of the older employees. I treat her with respect and still offer advice and let her work it out on her own .
