Poor Management
Posted by on
GLEN BURNIE, MARYLAND -- I just went through the most amazing experience I think I have ever been through in witnessing the complete lack of moral character and ethics a company can demonstrate.
I went into the North Glen Burnie, Maryland Target Pharmacy this last Friday to refill some of my prescriptions just like I have been doing for the last 3 years. I usually wait till I am in dire need of refilling due to my insurance plan requiring that and the high cost of drugs, even with that coverage. It has been a real challenge to go to the store to do this, until recently, due to my health condition. I have been dealing with 3 degenerative bone disorders that have changed my life into a living nightmare for the last 7 years. At times it took over an hour to just get my power wheelchair out of the van and drive it into the pharmacy to even get medicine. For over 2 years, until a few months ago, I have been told by my doctors if I get in a car or try moving around in the power chair I was at risk of breaking every bone in my body that wasn’t broken already. My left leg, hips and feet already had multiple fractures and complete breaks in them. The pain I dealt with has been unbelievable, but I had good reason to want to go through all of that to get to this pharmacy.
For the last 6 or 7 years I have traveled to wherever I had to, to see a particular pharmacist, who is also the pharmacy manager. His name is Bruce and he has become more than a friend to me. He has helped to such a large degree in my getting better, not just on a medical advisory level, but as a friend, with sound advice anytime I needed it. I have lost count how many times he walked with me to my car just to be sure I got there okay. My medical story does get better. I should still be in a wheelchair and remain there till I die, which would have been fairly soon. Well, I started walking a few months ago without risk, and continue to beat the odds.
Well, I say all of that to say this. Last Friday I found out Bruce was fired by his relatively new boss for forgetting to set the alarm in the pharmacy 4 times over the last 3 years. I guess that could be a problem by the sound of it. Drugs all of a sudden open to the public just waiting around to get them, to then go out and sell them on the street. Problem is, Bruce was the last to leave in an already closed store after lowering the steel door to the pharmacy and locking it, to then exit the already securely locked and protected store. On top of that a camera monitors all movement inside the locked pharmacy should anybody somehow get past the steel gate. Then, on top of that, Bruce would get a call 10 minutes or so after he left that the pharmacy alarm did not set. All he had to do was go ahead and set it.
The day his new boss arrived on the seen she started a campaign to get rid of him by constantly challenging his judgment and constructive comments. She would tell him that’s how you will get fired, by thinking his advice or ideas were better than what management could offer, which they never did. Problem with that is this particular pharmacist has increased the business of any store he has worked for over his long career including tripling Target’s business in his 3 years there. When he has left a store the business then drops to pre-Bruce levels again, never to return.
So now he has been fired and he was individually responsible for tripling their business and putting the store in the top 100 stores in the country and never once was he given any praise for that. By the way, a pharmacy customer buys stuff in the store at more than 4 times that of a non-pharmacy customer. So maybe you can see why I will NEVER shop at a Target store for anything ever again the rest of my, now, long life. Any group of horrible management that thinks so little of its patrons to act in this manner unchecked does not deserve any business from me or all the people I can influence, and believe me I will influence a lot of people for some time to come. Just a final foot note. This boss that fired Bruce has also lost several other managers. What a great job she must be doing and Target couldn't care less. Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Target does not have much control or they just don’t care how management in the stores conduct themselves. Well, there are a lot of other great places to shop that do care.

I'm amazed that you were privy to the reason why Bruce was fired. Unless Bruce himself called you and told you, the pharmacy in general and the employee who told you this in particular could be in serious trouble for a breach of privacy. That being said, there may have been other issues that lead to Bruce's termination, but we don't know for sure. If a boss takes a dislike to you and sets out to see you making your way toward the exit permanently, there's not a whole lot you can do.

Now that the service at Target pharmacy is no longer to your liking and you have such a debilitating condition that makes it hard to get around, perhaps you should look into transferring your business to a pharmacy that offers home delivery. Many of the smaller hometown-type pharmacies will do just that.
trmn8r on 2011-05-29:
This is a private matter between Bruce and the company.

I'll tell you this though. Once I committed a security infraction at a company I worked at. I never did it again after being disciplined. If he failed to set the alarm repeatedly, Bruce may have deserved to be fired. He seems to have minimized the risk of his behavior in the details he gave you. The company may not view it the same.

I agree with clutzy that you may be able to find a pharmacy that meets your needs better. Good luck with your health.
momsey on 2011-05-29:
Forgetting to set the alarm multiple times in a pharmacy is a serious infraction. It doesn't matter that once he's reminded, he can go do it. Even a secretary will be fired for making the same mistake over and over again, when that mistake doesn't have potentially dire consequences.

It's nice that you're so loyal to Bruce and that he's such a caring pharmacist. Maybe you can find out what pharmacy he goes to next and patronize them.
Cwazychicken on 2011-05-29:
There are a lot of nice pharmacists out there. Hopefully you can find another one that you can trust as much as you could him. I think when you close a store, you must set the alarms and if he didn't do that, then theres not much you can do about this situation, and the company had every right to let him go.
stopyourcrying on 2011-05-29:
If he got fired for forgetting the alarm several times then that is a good thing. I wonder what else did he forget to do.
Nohandle on 2011-05-29:
I'm sorry for the health issues you are experiencing. You state your favorite pharmacist, Bruce, was fired for forgetting to set the alarm 4 times within the past 3 years? Obviously he had been written up or the new manager would have no idea what happened 3 years ago. I gather it was the alarm for the pharmacy only and not the entire store, yet the gates to the pharmacy had been pulled shut and locked. Something sounds a tad fishy here and I hope you are able to find another pharmacist you like.

We actually have several pharmacies in this area that if they don't have a drive through or a patient doesn't want to use it, will bring your scripts to your car or home, which ever you prefer. Believe it or not, there's little, if any, difference in the price.
Lock it up! on 2011-05-29:
I'm surprised Bruce wasn't fired the first time he forgot to lock-up. There is a reason drugs are behind a locked grate and double or triple locked doors. If Bruce can't be trusted with the simple job of locking-up. Why on earth... would anyone trust him dispensing lethal drugs?
madconsumer on 2011-05-30:
wow! sounds like the boss made sure to find any little reason to harass bruce. no wonder he forgot to set the alarm.

I too have found target managers horrible with customer service and employee relations. I have witnessed countless conversations that were intimidating and belittling to the employee.
Glenn on 2011-06-15:
Target stores and pharmacies are regulated by stock price, not by competence, efficiency or business growth. They feel no ONE person is responsible for increased volume and, for all they know, this hatchet woman has just saved them thousands by replacing those high salaried managers with new, cheapers ones.

Unfair and just plain bad service.

VENTURA, CALIFORNIA -- I take vicodin for a back injury that I sustained at work a few years ago. I am a cna and do a lot of heavy lifting. My mom is also in the same boat. She also has to take vicodin for a back injury. We take the exact same med. Vicodin ES. 90ct. Neither one of us has insurance. For about the last 2years we have been getting our prescriptions from Target in Ventura. We were paying the same amount of money until about 4 months ago. All of a sudden they started telling me that I would have to pay 40$ for mine. They said that I was on some kind of program that had run out. I didn't think anything about it at first. Then I found out that my mom is still paying 16$ for hers. That started me wondering what was going on. I called them and they said that they would fix it. Well, next time it still wasn't fixed. I sent my mom in there to pick up my meds and they tried to charge her more 40$ again for mine. So we had to call customer service again. The next month after that they gave me my meds for the same price as my mom. Then yesterday, I asked my husband to go pick it up after work because he works near there and our car is broken down right now. He came home with only 40 pills in the bottle and the price they charged him for that was over 20$. I called the pharmacy once again and talked to one of the girls there. She put me on hold and talked to the pharmacist. She came back on the phone and told me that they would honor the original price for the meds because that was the price I started with. I explained that it didn't make sense to me that they could charge 2 people with the same exact rx 2 different prices. They didn't have an answer for that. Anyway, the girl told me to have my husband bring all the paper work that came in the bag back to the pharmacy today and they would give him the rest of my pills and give him a refund for the overcharge. So, today he goes in there on his lunch break and they don't give him my meds or the money. They all just act like they have no idea what he is talking about. So he wasted his whole 30min going over there, he didn't get to eat. And the money that he was supposed to get back was supposed to be the money he was going to use for lunch. I have had nothing but problems with this pharmacy. The meds are almost never ready when they say it will be. They don't fax the doctor when it's time for refills. Or better yet, they say they will fax the doctor and then don't and when I call the doctor they say they never got a fax from the pharmacy. There is one girl that works there that is rude every time I go in there. I see her being rude to all the customers. I guess that is just her personality, but customer service probably shouldn't be her line or work. This was the last straw for me. I will never use that pharmacy again and I will never let any of my friends or family use it either.

You have a back injury and do a lot of heavy lifting? How can you ever expect to recover?

I hope you're using a back belt

and if you have an injury like that you might be allowed to get special compensation at work for it, no?
Anonymous on 2009-10-07:
It sucks that you work an honest living and are uninsured. God bless ya for what you do, because a CNA works hard for her money. I would do what Ben said and try another pharmacy.

Pepper - I read it quickly and saw "black belt"... funniest mental image ever...
Ytropious on 2009-10-07:
2 people pay different prices for prescriptions all the time, it's called having different insurance plans.

yep! you need to karate chop those boxes!

Anonymous on 2009-10-08:
Ytrop, the OP said neither of them have insurance, so I, too, wonder about the difference in price. I was thinking it was an age thing, that may be they give the mom a discount because she's a senior? I don't know. There isn't enough information given to ascertain that conclusion.
Disaster Worker on 2009-10-08:
I can't wrap my arms around actively working as a CNA and taking a schedule III narcotic. That's very dangerous and could impact patient care. I realize chronic pain is terrible, but I truly wouldn't want the person working next to me to be on such a drug. In EMS, if you have so much as more than a baby aspirin, you'd lose your patch.

I hope you're not driving while on this med. When I was post-op for lumpectomy and lymphectomy, my surgeon suggested taking Evening Primrose Oil (from health foods store) for pain. It works like a charm.
Ytropious on 2009-10-08:
Oh I know Sherdy, the op made it sound like they never heard of differing prices. My comment wasn't really in regards to her particular situation, but the comment about prices differing.
hatetarget on 2009-10-08:
OK for those of you who are worried about me working on a drug like vicodin, You should know that I've been taking it for about 8 years. It doesn't get me high or anything like that. I don't drive because I just don't want to. I used to take a whole lot more drugs for my pain. Over the past few years I have been able to cut it down to one. I take advil if the pain isn't too bad. I only take the vicodin if I have to. As far as the 2 different prices goes, My mom is not a senior yet. I asked the regional manager why and she couldn't tell me. She said that was a whole different case she would have to look into. After talking with her on the phone yesterday, I didn't get the impression that she was going to do that. I called a few other pharmacies and they all pretty much told me the same thing. Without insurance it will cost about 40$ for my rx. But you know what, I would rather pay more money than have to deal with the problems I always get at this pharmacy. Thanks for listening. :O)
Anonymous on 2009-10-08:
hate, I am surprised your physician has left on you on Vicodin for that long. After a while you build up a resistance to drugs you take over a long time and they no longer work for you. WHY are you taking it?

Target Pharmacists are Horrible
Posted by on
ARVADA, COLORADO -- I used to love Target and I trusted them with my prescriptions. I have chronic pain due to a surgery that has had many complications on my body. I am not a drug addict in the least bit but I am constantly finding myself to be accused of being one simply because I have a monthly supply of pain pills. Big deal, what do these pharmacists truly know about dealing with this kind of pain on a daily basis?? Anyway the first time I took my prescription to the pharmacist intuition took over once I reached my car and I decided to count the pills. I was supposed to have 60 and come to find out they had given me 50. Knowing they would not believe me, I went back into Target wanting to let the pharmacist know that what he did was not right in the least bit and I would like my money back. He gave me the speech on how they count this stuff twice, it's written on the bottle, they supposedly keep a record of it. He took the bottle and counted. He told me I was right, there were 10 pills missing but it was not his problem. He swore up and down that he put 60 into that bottle and accused me of trying to get more. Complete bull. I immediately asked to talk to a manager but surprise surprise no one was there. I called the police and reported that pharmacy right away. I have told all of my friends and family to not trust that place whatsoever. Besides that last time I went there, I found that the pharmacy is extremely SLOW and do not follow through on their customer service. I would wait for DAYS for them to call my doctor to confirm a prescription and I would be the one to call and see if it had been taken care of.

They do not care whatsoever that there are people out there, in pain, waiting for them to do their jobs. They just do not care and it is sick. I would LOVE to find an honest and compassionate place to be able to fill my prescriptions but I think my quest might be a lost cause unfortunately.

RESPONSE TO SOME OF YOU:

Read closely...I went into the pharmacy KNOWING full well they would not believe me, people. I have been with Kaiser for years and never experienced a shortage at any time with them. The first time I go into a Target pharmacy (I-70 and Wads.) they short me. I had never once experienced this before, am I supposed to pick out which pharmacies I ask to count and which ones I trust? No, I have a life. I wanted whoever was in that pharmacy to KNOW that what they did was wrong. Obviously getting my monthly supply is not an issue so why would I want to have them counted each and every time I went. The pills weren't the issue here, it was the lack of integrity behind that counter.

How could the pharmacist know that you hadn't taken the 10 pills out of the container when you left? The Drug Enforcement Agency would have put them out of business if they gave you 10 more pills without proof that you didn't take them out. If you really are upset about that, then why don't you count them in the store next time, in front of the pharmacist? Narcotics, today, are being sold like candy, so I don't blame the pharmacist for not giving you more(NH).
madconsumer on 2009-02-12:
there are not to many pharmacists that will freely had over 10 pain pills. the ones that will have most likely been arrested already.
jktshff1 on 2009-02-12:
Your title should read "Target Pharmacist at (location) is horrible". Not at all of them.
yoke on 2009-02-12:
If you were so concerned that the pharmasist was going to short you 10 pils why did you wait until you left the store before counting them. Who is to say that you did not take 10 pills out and then claim you were shorted.
Starlord on 2009-02-12:
I deal with a company called Prescription Solutions,and receive three months of meds at a time, by mail. I get three months of meds and pay actually for two. it is a big money saver, and every bottle of pills is right on the money. None of the meds I take have any abuse potential, none being for pain or depression. Diabetic meds, anti-cholestral drugs, one for Restless Leg and so on. Check them out.
ejack053824 on 2009-02-12:
This falls under the category of "Too Bad". Mr. Bean and Yoke are right on this one. I wouldn't have just handed over 10 narcotic pills to you just because you said you were shorted.
memoryx57 on 2009-02-12:
Well, I understand both sides of this. I probably wouldn't be inclined to hand over extra narcotics either. But really, how many people are actually going to stand in the line and count pills every time we get something filled? I think in this case it's probably a no win situation. Everybody probably gets cheated every now and then. Anybody can make a mistake and I don't think a pharmacist would deliberately short somebodys prescription. Mistakes happen..
Disaster Worker on 2009-02-12:
And there could have been a theft at the pharmacy as well. A lot of Rx are handled by techs. I'd tend to give the OP the benefit of the doubt, but agree she should count the pills in front of the pharmacist the next time.
Principissa on 2009-02-12:
Any time I get a prescription filled I go to the side and count the pills. I have had two occasions with two different pharmacies where we were shorted pills. One was for darvocet and the other was for levaquin.
ejack053824 on 2009-02-12:
See...Principissa has the right idea.
BokiBean on 2009-02-12:
Principissa has the right idea. Hate to say it but sometimes pills ARE purposefully shorted in the pharmacy. If you have a feeling this has been happening to you the best thing to do is count them RIGHT THERE..do not leave the counter.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is estimated that 8% to 12% of health care workers have substance abuse problems. Furthermore, 11% to 15% of pharmacists, at some time in their career, are confronted with alcohol and/or drug dependency problems, and the median age of recovering pharmacists is 43 years. (link at: http://www.pharmacytimes.com/issues/articles/2006-11_4115.asp)

It happens, but once you leave the counter, its impossible to correct.
yoke on 2009-02-12:
I agree. I always check the meds before I leave the counter. I make sure I am getting the right meds and the correct amount. I get mine filled at CVS and when you step to the right there is an area to ask the pharmasist a question and they have no problem with customers using the area to check the meds.
Soaring Consumer on 2009-02-12:
The security camera footage would show if the OP took pills out of the container or not.

I understand what you're saying, Mrs. Bartoli, but what you were trying to do would only be effective if you BUSTED them instead of just accusing them. Counting the pills in the parking lot only turned it into a he said/she said.

At least when you called the police, you would have had a leg to stand on.

There are cameras the Target parking lots where I live, and warnings about them all over the place.

It all starts at the top. Target is dying a slow death and things like this are the reason why. I will pay more somewhere else than dare go to a target again. I prefer the small hometown stores now anyway. They are always better at service which seems to be lacking in some of these large companies today. Target Sales down over 3% last quarter, Walmart up over 1%. See ya target.

Pharmacist Complaint at Target at Libbie Ave. and W. Broad St., Richmond, VA
Posted by on
Rating: 1/51
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- I made the huge mistake of going into this store on Wednesday morning at approximately 10:30 A.M. and went to the pharmacy counter. The pharmacist was a young, white male with very dark hair and slim build. He came over to the counter and I proceeded to show him the referral that I had from Kmart for my prescription and asked him if Target would honor the pricing from Kmart and he said in a very loud, demanding voice, "No, I will not honor Kmart pricing." I was shocked that any pharmacist would ever treat a customer like he did. Also, what he did not know is that I am handicapped. He then told me he could beat the Walgreen's pricing that I had gotten and went to a computer and then did not even bother to get up and come back to the counter but announced that the price would be $38 which was $28 over the Kmart pricing and also over Walgreen's pricing. He was very unpleasant and unprofessional. My father was a pharmacist and I know very well what the conduct should be from all pharmacists. I did report him to the corporate office and strongly feel that he should not be placed in any stores until he is able to present himself in a professional manner. This is the wrong store for him to be employed in for it caters to lots of elderly customers.
What a disgrace to Target but probably not a surprise for I see numerous other complaints about the pharmacies throughout the country.

Target Pharmacy - Rude and Humiliating
Posted by on
TUCSON, ARIZONA -- This Target is near my home so I shop there frequently and am totally happy with the store with ONE IMPORTANT EXCEPTION - the Pharmacy. Somehow the staff in this pharmacy is unaware of the concepts of courtesy, customer service, and kindness.

Since I shop there a lot I decided to fill a prescription there and when I went to pick it up it was a comedy of errors. They could not find it under my name. This began a computer search for the item and they found it filled under my previous (married) name. I have been divorced for 4 years and the prescription was not made out in that name. They could not explain this mix up but treated me as though somehow it was my fault.

I asked for the label to be redone and this caused a cascade of hostility starting with the clerk standing at a terminal 15 feet from the counter SHOUTING OUT my personal information for verification. We have your birthdate as XXXXX is that correct? We have your allergies as XXXXX is that correct? Then he also shouted out the name of my medicine. Surely this type of behavior is a violation of my health privacy!

I was humiliated. No apology for the error was ever made. I complained to the store manager (a 20 or 30-something guy) who seemed a little puzzled that this was enough to make me complain. He said, "We've never had any other pharmacy complaints..." which indicates to me that because I was the first, I was probably a crackpot. Obviously, I will never return there for any prescription needs. It's a shame the pharmacy people aren't put through the same courtesy training as the rest of the store personnel.

great review.

Anonymous on 2011-01-22:
Prince, I work in the pharmacy industry. Although I am no longer in retail, when I was we were expected to behave professionally at all times. The management where I worked did not tolerate this type of behavior. When privacy violations like this occur they need to be reported. Each pharmacy is supposed to have a designated area where patients and pharmacy staff can discuss issues privately. This can be at the pharmacy where other customers are designated to stay back so many feet or a separate area entirely. Either way, if this shouting of your personal information occurred at the pharmacy as you state, it should be reported. This website may be able to help you determine if an actual violation took place and how to report it. Good luck.

trmn8r on 2011-01-22:
Have you used this pharmacy before? Obviously they got your previous name from a record in the computer. Seems to me that when a birthdate is verified, the ideal way would be to show you it on paper. Lacking that, a low level interchange that can't be easily overheard.

As far as the manager, maybe he really hadn't had other complaints - it doesn't mean he thinks you are a crackpot IMO. It sounds like they need to tweak the procedures a bit - good management would see that it is done.
Anonymous on 2011-01-22:
I go to Walmart for my prescriptions and they are very professional there. I used to go to Walgreens, but they would keep denying me my prescriptions because their system still shows that I am pregnant. I would tell them every time I went in that I wasn't pregnant anymore and they would tell me they updated the system. But the next time I went, I would get told the same thing; "our records indicate you're pregnant." So I don't use them anymore
olie on 2011-01-22:
How far away were you standing from the counter? I see people who won't move from the chairs provided near a pharmacy area, and I see people who get a bit, um, argumentative when there's a problem with their prescription. The tech has no real choice but to either call out the information or say something like, "If you come to the counter we can discuss this more privately."

I'd have stepped up to the counter as soon as I found out there was a problem.

Pharmacy Prescrition Frequently Unfilled on Time
Posted by on
Rating: 2/51
WALNUT CREEK, CALIFORNIA -- Frustrated and disappointed that the Walnut Creek Target pharmacy too often doesn't have prescriptions ready at promised times. A typical response for the error is "the system is the problem". Not sure what that means, don't think they do either. I run my own business, so my time is very valuable. Getting to the store, finding a place park, dealing with the other lines can be daunting. So I suppose I should stop whining and find another pharmacy...

Pharmacy Is Going Downhill

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA -- A doctor said a prescription would be sent to Target electronically. When I got to Target, it was not there yet. An hour later I called and the person said they have it and are processing it. An hour later, I went to pick it up and it was not processed.

Target used to be so reliable but their quality if service has declined. Seems that they were good when they were building the business and trying to lure customers away.

I think I will return to Walgreens or CVS.

was this under prescription coverage or straight purchase?
Skye on 2011-12-18:
You could have refused the prescription, and then have your doctor rewrite you a new script for whatever it was, you were receiving.

That's a big price difference, but you are not legally bound to it, or obligated to pay that price, which was quite a bit more than $13.00. No pharmacy can force you to pay for prescription or take it with you.

I agree, Skye. I would have figured out what went wrong and corrected it before paying.

When you contacted your insurance company what did they say?

Prescription Overcharge
Posted by on
Charged regular prices for generic prescrition. more then 200 dollars. I will never shop a target store again. I called their home office but who knows how long before they take action. as far as I am concerned they are history.

Do you have drug coverage through your insurance? If you do, call your insurance company and ask them what your co-pay should be. If there is a difference, take that information back Target and you should get a refund.

My thoughts exactly BEJ.

Target Pharmacy - Mira Loma CA
Posted by on
MIRA LOMA, CALIFORNIA -- My wife and I feel very fortunate having such a dedicated crew at our local Target Pharmacy. Pharmacist Amy, Mauro, and the crew always have excellent attitudes, and perform marvelously for us - from handling prescriptions for vacations to quickly contacting doctors' offices for any problems - we could not ask for finer service.
