Rexall Drug Store Winnipeg, Manitoba

Pharmacy Manager

I was asked at the end of June 2017 to take over the management of a Rexall in Winnipeg. I worked as mainly a Pharmacist but also took over the business aspect of the Pharmacy as well. I had been Manager before, so it was not hard to step in. In early 2018 Rexall decided June 2016

to close 10 % of all their stores in Canada. I was asked if I could be bought out due to the fact that many long time Pharmacists had no places within the company to go. Do to my short time with Rexall, I accepted and now am looking for new employment. Staff Pharmacist

Mainly responcible for checking clients medications and counseling on there use. Large amount of pillpacks filled in this location, so responcible for checking pillpacks. The store was also a fair large dispenser of methadone, so witnessing dosages was part of the job. high area for drug abuse so spent time counseling on abuse potential with clients and with the physician.

Staff Pharmacist

Worked as a licensed staff pharmacist at White Cross drugs on Broadway. Counseled patients, checked medications from tech filling, and checked pill packs. I briefly did a bit of drug ordering but that was mainly left to an experienced dedicated person. Did some work on Kroll, but the technicians were the data entry experts in this pharmacy. Staff Pharmacist

Was a staff pharmacist between this time at Shoppers in The Pas. Spent most of the day checking technician counted prescription, checking pill packs, compounding many pharmaceutical products and did a lot of drug ordering. Maintained the Narcotic safe and made sure quantities on hand match with the amount in the computers. Had Health Watch filling system, which is a Shoppers system. Learned it well, but it had many glitches. Associate

When Shoppers was bought out Paragon Pharmacies, where I was the Pharmacy manager, I was hired as the Shoppers Associate June 15/2013 and ran the entire store. With no formal Shoppers training, I continued to run the store as I had when it was still Paragon. I was originally trained in Calgary on the new Shoppers filling system called Health Watch and apon returning to The Pas, integrated and trained my staff on the new system. It was a bit harder to teach my staff on the new system in a short time window, but we eventually got comfortable and worked the new system well. It was an extremely busy store and we filled on average 300-400/day. I was a normal pharmacist 95% of the time and had little time to run the store to the way it should be. I filled scripts (data entry on Health Watch), counted medications, checked pill packs, componded some prescritions, filed prescriptions and tried to councel on all many patients as possible, Also did flu shot injections, and helped clients pick out OTC products.

As Pharmacy Manager I hired pharmacy staff, checked prescriptions, ordered stock, phoned and counseled our clients, and kept everything running smoothly. In this position, all bill payments and banking responsibilities were done at head office level. Staff Pharmacist

Performed all jobs related to being a Pharmacist. Filled medications, counseled patients on their medications, did medication reviews, helped with OTC selection, worked on the kroll computer system. I also did some medication deliveries. July 2007
