So, I wrote about the Walgreens that I was rotating through. The particular site that I was at was really awesome, although I drove around so I visited a lot of locations. Most of the rest weren’t particularly interesting. The slow locations out in the suburbs are boring as hell, but like I said, the people there determine whether or not it’s a desirable place to work. To some extent you have to help set the tone, but if everyone there is super awful or boring, there’s not much you can do.
I met one pharmacy manager out in the suburbs, he was a good pharmacist and a good manager as well, but his store was real quiet and it was super boring. He was very by-the-books.
But the store that I was at, me and the pharmacy manager just really clicked. She’s like 30, ambitious and has an amazing sense of humor. Basically, I look at her and she’s the pharmacist I’d like to be when I’m 30. She also likes me a lot as a student. We have similar attitudes towards a lot of stuff. It’s just nice I guess to have someone who reaffirms your worldviews. So I have a ton of admiration for her and she was able to turn me around on retail practice so she really likes me.
It’s hard for me to describe how I feel about it. Like, it’s hard to put into words. It was like a whirlwind where I just sort of went in hoping that I wouldn’t have to fill all day and now I think I could definitely do it as a career.
