    How do you work as part of a greater team? What role do you find yourself taking on in a team environment?

      Pharmacy Technicians work with a variety of people through their workday and functioning in a larger team is extremely important. Depending on the setting that you may be working in, you may work with Pharmacists, Nurses, Physicians or any other hospital, clinic or retail staff. Your interviewer will be looking to hear that you are willing to do what it takes to help the greater good of the organization and that you are able to work with people from different walks of life and that work in different jobs.

      Ryan's Answer

      "The team-based atmosphere at my current job is very inspiring and makes work both productive and fun. I work closely with our Pharmacists and am able to take direction from them on a daily basis while also being able to discuss issues with them. My fellow techs and I are a great team together and we bounce ideas off of each other and help each other out whenever needed. In this team environment, I am definitely a leader among my technicians."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Teamwork is vital in any work environment and its extremely important in a pharmacy setting. I will be dealing with powerful medications and communication between myself, me fellow technicians and the pharmacists is something I will take great pride in. During my schooling, I worked for a large retail establishment where I quickly became a lead in my department. In that role, I was tasked with leading pre-shift meetings and helping train new staff and I loved being in a lead type role."

      Ryan's Answer

      "Throughout my career, I've thrived on the fact that I got to work as part of a greater team in a patient care setting. In my current role in a hospital setting, I love that I get to work with providers, nurses and fellow pharmacy staff. Among my colleagues, I am a natural leader due to my experience in the field. I am on our interviewing team and also help to train new staff when they start in our pharmacy. I am also a great communicator with all members of the team that I work with."
