The Myths of Pharmacy Staffing Agencies
In the past, pharmacy staffing agencies were seen by employers as a last-resort when an entry-level position had a temporary opening. However, current staffing companies have advanced further and have overcome the issues of the past. Unfortunately, many myths still exist about such companies. Let’s dispel some of these myths.
1. Pharmacy Staffing agencies only offer temporary work
While many staffing agencies only offer temporary work, others, such as CareerStaff Rx, offer many temp-to-hire positions. This is an ideal form of finding employment, because the employer and employee get a chance to work together to see if the position will be a good fit. CareerStaff Rx also offers direct-placement services.
2. Jobs from pharmacy staffing agencies are low-paying
There is no reason to believe this myth. Jobs from staffing agencies like CareerStaff Rx are typically very competitive with industry standards. Oftentimes, temporary positions will actually be paid more than their full-time counterparts because companies using staffing agencies are looking for top-quality employees, and are paying to use the staffing agency’s services.
3. Staffing agencies only work with low-level, administrative positions
While this may have been true in the past, staffing agencies now work with every kind of position at every level, from secretaries to executives. CareerStaff Rx staffs several different pharmacy professionals in all types of position, including temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct placement.
4. Temporary work will keep me from finding full time work and I can’t use it on a resume
This is absolutely not true! Temporary work can and should be used on a resume. In fact, temporary jobs will net a wide variety of references that can highlight your skills and flexibility in the workplace. In many situations, temporary work can bolster your resume in a way a full time job cannot. Also, these temporary jobs can oftentimes lead to full time positions, so your time is well invested!
