I'm a technician.

I make $15.65 an hour in California.

I love helping people!! Some of the patients are just so amazing

Insurance companies are the worst part of the job. And drug addicts who want their control meds early.

I am PTCB nationally certified, California state licensed, and I have my A.S. degree

I went to school at SJVC (San Joaquin Valley College, a for profit junior college)

Hope this helps!

Walgreens will only pay for the test if you already work in the pharmacy as a cashier. (I worked there for over 4 years)

Walgreens used to be a GREAT company to work for but has gone down hill lately. I still know many people who work there and they all hate it. Hours are cut back, all the perks are gone, and the insurance is terrible now. It's almost impossible to get into one these days cause the people who still have their jobs are fighting like crazy for hours.

Quoting Angelina052105:

 I am looking into taking the 50 pharmacy tech program..but I just learned that Walgreens will let you work there and then pay for your school and test fee.  I don't know if i'd make the most amount of money..but our family is hurting bad right now..soo..i need a job fast..and I haven't gotten any call backs..:(  I hope to God that things will work out for you..and I...
