So, I got a job offer for the pharmacy counter assistant role at my local store!

I was wondering if anyone here has held this position or knows anything about it? What is the induction like? What is the further training like? What is the uniform like? What is it like working there?

Hi! I've recently moved departments to the Bakery, but I worked in this role for 4 months.

The interview is a standard Sainsbury's interview. They ask you questions: why do you want to work for sainsburys?, what do you already know about sainsburys?, tell me about yourself, give me a time when... Etc

Then they take you around the shop floor and you pick out what is good about the shop floor and some bad points, then you discuss them.

One thing to bear in mind is that sainsburys pharmacy will turn into lloyds in February, so you lose all sainsburys benefits.

Personally, for me, I didn't enjoy the role very much. I like to be kept busy and have people to talk to, which the pharmacy didn't provide for me. The working hours were also awful too and I didn't get along with the rest of the team, not because anyone was mean but there was a considerable age gap between us that meant we didn't have any common ground. There is a lot to learn though and many qualifications you can achieve!

Good luck!
