Soul destroying experience, bully atmosphere, poor HR department and management

Good rota, great training with good career prospects . Management under constant pressure to do multiple roles, ended up not caring about good staff. The hardest part was not being able to do the job I trained for due to poor hiring criteria example, wages and experience.


Great training


Stressful atmosphere

I recommend working here weather you are into pharmacy work or not. Great staff, great management, very flexible good pay. Very rewarding building relationships with frequent customers. Going to different shops for some days is no change at all. All staff are really welcoming and willing to pass on knowledge.

Hi,Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We’re so glad that you had a positive experience working here at LloydsPharmacy. We wish you all the best going forward in your next position and future employment.Kind Regards,Employer Brand Team

Workload does not reflect on your pay. Head office very unorganised with hiring replacement staff. Upset current staff as a result.

Workload and stress does not reflect on the poor technician wages. Company not showing me how to do paper work and provide training. Manager and supervising pharmacist both gone and not replaced instead working with locums in a messy shop thats falling apart, head office are not helpful at all very unprofessional & poor behaviour.

Great team

Hard work and underpaid . Not enough staff and harsh customers . No support from head office . Not appreciated from senior managers just a number in their eyes

Busy and stressful

Very mixed hours. No certainty or set schedule. Very bad pay, worked there for 3 years and never once’s got a pay rise. Way to target driven especially for a business that already takes in so much money.

Llyds Pharmacy Donnybrook good place to work

In Donnybrook was a very good place for work. I can not say the same thing about Lloyds Pharmacy Finglas. There is the most horrible staff I ever seen in my life. Terrible an grumpy.

Rewarding sector to be working in

Great to be part of McKesson, a global leader in Pharmaceutical sector. Making a difference to patients lives is rewarding especially in these unprecedented times. Career progression opportunities across Ireland and Europe.

Challenging and interesting

I loved working in the branch I was in. I loved my interactions with the clientele. The team were fantastic and the work changed me everyday. Mentally moreover physically, but I loved it overall. I left for financial reasons. They never gave me my raise & employed someone on a higher pay rate than me. They determine rate of pay on length of service, not performance. This did not sit right with me at all. I got no satisfaction when I raised it with them & was basically told to just get on with it. I felt completely undervalued in this job, which is a very tough & demanding job. I would only work wit this company again if they paid me accurately.

Great workplace

The staff at Lloyds pharmacy were very nice and welcoming towards me and were very helpful throughout my time working there. Anytime I had any problems or confusions they were dealt with. I learned many different things and also developed numerous skills.
