Overall Reviews at Chemist Warehouse
Reasons not to work at chemist warehouse
Working at chemist warehouse is not beneficial at all,
The management across the stores is shocking
I have worked there for 5 years and have been doing the same thing for 5 years they don’t like to promote people, if anything they would rather hire Someone who has no idea how the store is run then training employees who have been there for multiple years, they only care about the money coming in, they don’t care about the employees at all
my day at work.
a day at work for me at chemist warehouse is basically packing shelves. Its not my dream job. love the people I work with an stuff but its a warehouse. not a chemist. I'm not really enjoying it as it not what I want to do anymore. 10 years in pharmacy is enough. I want a different career. I work wed to sun to make ends meet as the money is like a retail wage, but I stay to get by and money isn't everything. Its nice to try and get ahead in life.
I'm looking to change my career. To earn a bit more money would be good and to try something new. Management is not the best. There is no communication, although we are getting a new retail manager this week so hopefully things will improve.

they were not very customer service orientated and are more interested in pushing sales and serving the next customer as quick as possible. They are more focused on their plannogrammes and store layout to get optimum sales which takes the focus off customers and actually working. You spend most of your time changing product placement and price changes
ProsHelping customers and learning about the industry
Consshort breaks, no benefits and over worked

Productive but slow paced
- A lot of stock-take work and floor-work
- Learnt about the application of different medical goods although wasn't a pharmacists' assistant
- Well managed
- Workers were kind and inviting
Poor company to work for
Manager is narcissistic, lazy, gossips, tells staff confidential information. No idea how she still has a job there.
Toxic work environment.
Head pharmacist enables the toxic environment by never taking complaints by staff seriously.
For the past two years I have been working with Lincraft Australia LTD as a process worker, using RF scanners while also working part time at My Chemist warehouse with Southbank city center also before that I have been working 5 years with Bitzer Australia Pty Ltd Refrigeration Parts & Equipment Wholesaler & Manufacturer – Sunshine north in this all roles I have gained extensive knowledge as a store person inventory controller and a customer service officer.
I very much enjoy being part of My Chemist Warehouse team and all I am keen to gain a full time position anywhere where I feel my skills would be better utilized.
I enjoy working with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures and of varying ages.
I think that Chemist Warehouse was a perfect and reasonable work experience for me in year 10 because I enjoy helping customers and people in general. The staff are very inclusive and nice.
Have learnt key elements that I have implemented in my life.
Every day I enjoy going to work, to meet with my colleagues and new challenges my manager give to me. I give 110% of my self to the department and my customers.
Work was very tidious and boring despite it being fast paced because you do the same things over and over. The people are great and supportive and so is management.
