    Focus on the Patient careers

    We stress the importance of personal counseling as a key element in a patient's prescription drug therapy. We've developed innovative pharmacy services to better serve our patients, such as the Eckerd Rx Advisor, a prescription information leaflet which gives patients key information about their prescriptions. We've remodeled our pharmacies to include a consultation area, and made the pharmacist more accessible to the patient.

    Drug Store Career Opportunities At Eckerd

Our associates do many "behind the scenes" activities such as stocking merchandise, cleaning, straightening the shelves, unloading boxes, helping customers on the phone, and putting up sales signs. And then we do it all again the next day. All to provide our customers with a well-stocked store that's pleasant to shop in.
