Answer

CVS in Monmouth County,NJ gives just 8.90 an hour with certification, and after a year 9.05. Go to Walgreens!

CVS pays 9/hr then it goes up to 11/hr after you get your cert, usually within three months. If you stay with it you can make 40k a year.

BEING A PHARM TECH FOR 6 YEARS NOW AT UNIVERSITY OF MD I MAKE 30 DOLLARS AND HOUR

WHEN I STARTED I MADE 16 BECAUSE I WENT STRAIGHT TO HOSPITAL

AS A PHARMACY TECH YOU ARE NOT LIMITED TO HOSPITAL OR RETAIL

YOU CAN WORK IN MEDICAID FOR THE STATE OR EVEN PACKAGING

THE KEY IS TO GET MORE SKILLS

LIKE MAKING INTRAVANEOUS PACKS,IV.

OR COMPOUNDING WHICH THEY HAVE JOBS WHERE YOU JUST COMPOUND OR PACKAGE MEDS

THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO GET CERTIFIED

IF YOU LIVE IN MD AND YOUR A WOMAN THERE IS A FREE PROGRAM ON 900 SOMERSET STREET WHICH IS FREE AND ONLY TAKES 3 MONTHS

I GRADUATED FROM THERE THEY ARE ASSOCIATED WITH NOTRE DAME COLLEGE
