Yes the article is from 2009. The only time I've seen one of them was in Newmarket's South Lake...
Haven't seen another in the GTA.

i'm sure whatever pharmacy regulatory bodies out there would probably revoke a license if the mess up was bad enough too. PRofessionals won't risk their career over someone who wants 2 seconds fast food take out like service.aceaofivalia wrote: ↑Feb 24th, 2016 2:19 am1) Was the store busy? Even if the store didn't look filled with people, they probably had many other patients before you, if they told you 1 hr wait time to start.
2) Some people can and will sue the pharmacy in case something went wrong with their drug, including manufacturer-made cream like that. Honestly I wonder what would happen if we were to test two lines: one that says "no liability" line that guarantees 5 min wait-time and the other one that properly checks for stuff. The stuff here being correct drug, dose, directions, interaction, et cetera.
3) No there's no real union in most community pharmacy chains. In fact, they might be the only pharmacist on shift for 8 hours straight without break time and probably wishes that they were unionized.

It depends on the area. I've experienced loooong wait times in both a drugstore and a salon in the Philippines. Many major establishments are not stingy on man power either. They hire more workers compared to Canada. People in the islands have a laidback, relaxed mentality and they don't feel like they're in a rush, and they would much rather gossip/fool around with their coworkers first instead of attending to customers.

there's a lot that goes on in the background when dispensing. it's not as simple and reading the prescription, counting pills, pop them into a bottle, and bam. they can pay any monkey (aka pharmacy technicians) to do that. there's a reason they pay pharmacists $40-$60/hour compared to $13-$18 for pharmatechs.
