Are you passionate about Health and Wellness? Do you enjoy helping people? Do you thrive in a busy environment that requires you to be detailed, organized and good at juggling multiple responsibilities? If this sounds intriguing, then you may be a great candidate for the Health and Wellness Associate and Pharmacy Technician roles at Rite Aid.
As the role of the community pharmacy in the health care industry continues to evolve, the Rite Aid team becomes more focused than ever on overall wellness. Roles within the stores such as Health and Wellness Associate and Pharmacy Technician play a significant role in helping our customers connect with products and services that will support their overall health and wellness.
The role of the Health and Wellness Associate is designed to increase customer satisfaction, loyalty and utilization of pharmacy and clinical services by effectively promoting and selling services provided by Rite Aid inside and outside of the store. This involves proactively engaging with customers to provide a unique shopping experience by leveraging their specialized knowledge of product categories and utilizing in-store technology. The Health and Wellness Associate connects the customer with the Pharmacist when they need help selecting products related to their well-being such as vitamins and over the counter drugs. The Health and Wellness Associate is critical in identifying organizing and executing business to business and community outreach activities including immunization outreach, senior citizen center visits, health care provider visits, and fitness center visits.
The role of the Pharmacy Technician is to work closely with the Pharmacist to ensure that customers receive prompt and courteous service in the Pharmacy Department.
While the role of the Pharmacy Technician may vary slightly from state to state depending on state specific regulations, Pharmacy Technicians often enter and look up information in the computer system, assist with inventory management, complete paperwork, gather outstanding information needed from patient or doctor to fill a prescription and check the customer out at the register.
On-the-job training is provided by Rite Aid, so applicants do not need to pharmacy experience to be qualified. The Pharmacy Technician Program specifically is a 6 month program
comprised of Computer Based Training (CBTs), Workbook exercises, hands on learning, classroom sessions and culminates in a Final Competency Exam.
Qualified candidates for both these jobs must also be able to work a flexible schedule that may include evenings and weekends.
We look forward to talking to you about these exciting and rewarding opportunities!
