Is going to pharmacy school a waste of time?
Some people say it is a waste of time to be a pharmacy technician.
These days, it is not a waste of time. Walgreen and cvs always need some one to prepare the medicine or hand out the medicine. Some lawyers and medical students think it is easier than being them. It is a fact. Money is good, and it is one step to go see them.
Your career is fully dependent upon your specific interests, abilities, talents and financial requirements. Fully investigate whatever career paths interest you and make sure you are getting a good ROI.
If you are paying several thousand dollars to go to school to become a pharmacy tech, I would say that could be a waste of time if that is not the role you want for at least several years. Also, it is very common for pharmacy tech's to not earn much in many parts of the US. Pharmacy tech's tend to earn between $9 and $13 an hour on average. At these rates, it is common for people to have a difficult time paying for school after they get a pharmacy tech job if they took out loans for school and a hard time paying out of pocket to add to their education due to the pay.
If you are paying thousands of dollars to go to pharmacy school to become a pharmacist and will be earning six figures, this is likely a better use of your time and efforts if you are interested in this role within the pharmacy or owning your own pharmacy or chain someday.

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...
