i have the opportunity to have a paid internship as a pharmacy technician. In 10 weeks I would be certified. The internship only pays 7.25 which is min wage here. Id like to know if any of you are in this bussiness. Do you like your job? How well do you get paid once your certified?

Bump. That seems low to get paid. But i have no knowledge about how much techs normally get paid.

Depends on the area. When I was working which was almost 7 years ago I was making 8.25 un-certified. I was in the process of becoming cert til I got pregnant. I loved my job and of course you'll make more certified. Don't let them low ball you. Start high, and counter somewhere in the middle when it comes to pay. Retail you can make as much as $13 an hour and of course hospital pharmacy is much higher.

 Around here techs get paid around 13-15 per hour.  I thought about doing it but I changed my mind and went radiology instead.   I do know some techs that really enjoy their jobs though.  Good luck with whatever you decide.
