Job of the Week | Pharmacy Technician

Text: Job of the Week Pharmacy Technician Woman holding prescription bottle
VA Salt Lake City Pharmacy Technician, Alexis Russell, loves that she gets to focus on helping our Veterans.

The job of pharmacy technicians at VA Salt Lake City Health Care System is far different from working in a retail pharmacy.

Alexis Russell, VASLC pharmacy technician and Army Veteran, has worked here for nearly nine years. She worked in a retail pharmacy and said the differences between working at the VA pharmacy and retail pharmacy are striking such as no drive-thru, no cash registers, no constant phone calls, and no dealing with insurance companies.

“You get to focus on the pharmacy aspect of it,” said Russell.

If you would like to see our operations, we would love to set up an appointment for you. We are only as good as our people, and realize that an engaged, empowered, and diverse staff are the key to our success. We also offer opportunities for advancement. Choose VA, we think it will be a great career decision, that you will not regret. 

Please reach out to Kristine.dawson@va.gov for questions or inquires for these positions.
