"I've worked for Omnicare for almost 5 years and enjoyed having a full-time job, but after some years saw that the company lacks positions for advancement and many employees become stagnant. Though a good company my biggest regret is not researching the opportunity for advancement."

Omnicare Employee
in Plainview, NY

"Omnicare of Plainview is a struggling branch of CVS Health that has failed to change with the times. Higher-ups believe that running a long term care pharmacy is the same as running a retail pharmacy, which is ignorant and incorrect. You are not fairly treated or compensated for the amount of work you put in, and I would not suggest working there to anyone."

"I worked for just a few weeks at this company and that was enough! Supervisor as well as coworkers, rude, belittling you, talking behind your back, not only to you, but slamming others. The training was really bad as not taken enough time to see if you could grasp it."

Omnicare Employee
in Cincinnati, OH

"I've worked for Omnicare for 19 years and believe it is a solid company providing a rewarding work experience. The industry is interesting, challenging, and provides a valuable service to the elderly. The current management is struggling for it's own identity and lacks leadership and direction but I believe they will figure it out in time."

Pharmacist in Charge
in North Little Rock, AR

"Completely sold out by my direct manager and one of my pharmacists who wanted my job. Was attacked verbally and by email before I had a chance to tell them what the true story was. By the time they realized I was right I was so angry that I left. Biggest problem here is the PIC actually has no authority. Only used to be scapegoat if problems occur. Pharmacist In Charge of nothing."

Pharmacist in Charge
in North Little Rock, AR

"The entire management of Omnicare from local all the way up to the top is terrified of Human Resources, a group of people who know nothing about pharmacy, not one single decision is made without either consulting them or hiding it from them. Upper and mid level management is then seen as deceitful because they are afraid to say what they really mean since HR will attack them. Poor morale as sales force and account rep loss in the last year caused loss of business no matter how good of a job we did."

What do you like about working at Omnicare?

"It's chewing up smaller pharmacies and spitting out their employees."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Coming in to the organization from the outside can be better than being part of an acquisition."

What don't you like about working at Omnicare?

"No direction since the buyout. Waiting for the ax to fall"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Improve communications with the companies you are swallowing. You do it often, and should have a better game plan for communicating the changes to employees."

Pharmacist in Charge
in Appleton, WI

"Senior management admitted I was set up to fail."

What do you like about working at Omnicare?

"Serving our elder residents in nursing homes who can't help themselves."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Go in with your eyes wide open. Talk to the people that work there, not just the interviewer. Ask them to be honest. Some sites are better than others. Expect to work long hours and sacrifice time with your family."

What don't you like about working at Omnicare?

"Came into a very bad situation. The previous manager had spoiled staff by doing a lot of their work for them, and letting them set whatever cushy schedules they wanted for themselves. The pharmacy was critically understaffed and turnover was extremely high. There were major compliance issues because the previous manager had ignored them despite repeated warnings by corporate. The original building we were in before we moved and structural problems that were ignored, including a leaking roof that would literally leak buckets of water when it rained and in the spring when the snow melted. I had to have the city building inspector force the landlord to fix the leak. The position was three full-time jobs rolled into one - General Manager, Pharmacist-in-Charge, and staff pharmacist. My boss and his bosses, including the Regional Vice President and Divisional President, had openly admitted that I was set up for failure. The solution I was begging for, which was to split the GM and PIC jobs (where it is done in all of the other pharmacies in the state), was finally acknowledged, but I was told, It should be another 3 or 4 months before we can get the budget approved. Just try to hang in there."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I think my direct supervisor is great, and he has tried to assist me the best he can, but he is overloaded too. I'm glad that senior management has recognized the problems with the organization here, but they are slow to fix issues. If they want to retain customers, they have to be willing to give their managers the personnel to realize their goals. The corporate structure is an inverted pyramid - they keep creating more and more vice president and analysts positions, but are reticent to hire more techs and pharmacists - the people who will actually allow your company to succeed."
