Whether you're an experienced pharmacy professional or you just picked up your first shift, we know that starting at a new facility can be a bit overwhelming. Who do you need to ask for? What should you bring? Here are some tips to make your next assignment run smoothly:
- Verify hours and pay rates. Make sure you know when your shift begins and ends, if you get a paid lunch, and what you will be earning.
- Make a note to find out the name of the contact person at the facility just in case you have questions.
- Be sure to ask what color scrubs to wear or if you need anything particular.
- Get directions. That way you can be sure to arrive on time for your first day.
- Check to make sure that you have the correct ID badge.
- Make sure you have your time sheet.
- You know where and when you're working, but make sure that you also know where to go and who to ask for once you get to the facility.
- It is a good idea to arrive at least 15 minutes before your first shift so you can familiarize yourself with the facility.
