Have you ever thought about becoming a pharmacy technician? If so, how did you find out about this career field?

In the pharmacy I frequent, there are usually two pharmacy technicians and one pharmacist there at the same time. During slower hours, there may only be one technician, but there is at least one at all times. I had previously assumed that there was the pharmacist, who put the medications in the bottles, and the other people who stocked shelves or worked as cashiers. It’s amazing the kinds of misconceptions you can have, and how completely wrong they can be.
