Do you want the best of both worlds by living close to the city, but also in a more residential area with full access to the lake? This staff pharmacy assistant job, in one of Toronto’s best commuter towns, will allow you to experience that way of life.

As the pharmacy assistant, you will be working together with the staff pharmacist and playing a key role in helping our pharmacy run smoothly and effectively. This is a full-time position – however, the day/time of your shifts may vary (dependent on when you are most needed in a given week).

  • Dispense prescription medication and other medical products to patients under direction of licensed pharmacist
  • Count pills, label bottles, price, and compound medications to prepare prescriptions for patients as directed

  • Monitor prescription-filling process to ensure compliance with relevant regulations and pharmacy policies
  • Liaise with healthcare providers and patients to obtain correct prescription information
  • Answer patients’ questions about their medications under the supervision of the pharmacist
  • Take inventory of drugs on hand and records results
  • Place orders for additional drugs as directed by the pharmacist
  • Maintain electronic patient information
  • Prepare billing information for medications

What’s Required of You?:

  • You must know how to use Nexxsys pharmacy software
  • You should have at least one year of previous pharmacy assistant experience.
  • This is a community pharmacy with an average volume of prescriptions per day. You must be able to manage the volume effectively, prioritizing tasks to assist any supervising pharmacists and RPhTs.
