My dad is a pharmacist. I think of it as a $115K/yr McDonalds job. Good pay, borring 9-5. But if you could do it part-time it would be great!

I think Target would be a LOT less stress than Walgreens or CVS..........

50 scripts a day? That's it? Man, my dad would have LOVED to work there back "in the day".

He did 150-200 scripts a DAY for 15 years, then switched to teaching phanrmacy techs........

You need to be prepared that as a pharmacist you'll regularly be asked some very non-trivial questions about managing health conditions, drug interactions, side effects, etc. This carries with it substantial ethical and legal liability...its much more than just counting pills, which by the way is all done by machine for the most part. And I suspect you'll come across a wide variety of junkies and other folks addicted to / abusing various substances. Not very pretty situation. Working in a hospital pharmacy would avoid much of this.

Personally if I were interested in pharmacy I'd investigate being a compounding pharmacist, not a commodity drug dispensing agent. The compounding side of that business always struck me as far more interesting, esp I would think for someone with a chemistry background.
