Hi,
I and my husband plan to move to Texas. If anyone know about the pharmacy job markets ( for pharmacist positions in retail or mail order) in Houston or San Antonio or etc..., please let us know. Thanks, Viv.

I can tell you that the CVS in Kingwood needs a pharmacy tech and has for awhile and if you can fill that spot I would appreciate it so I don't have to wait 15 minutes every time I go to pick up a prescription there .

I would say (without research, mind you) that you should not have any trouble finding a pharmacist position in Houston. You might want to check out UH-School of Pharmacy, they may have some links for you.

Overall, healthcare professions do well in Houston.

Hi,
I am a pharmacist recruiter who works exclusively with pharmacist placement in the state of TX. Our clients are hospitals and specialty pharmacies (not retail), but I can tell you that the market in Houston is much tighter than it is in San Antonio. There are two pharm schools in Houston which I believe is a part of the reason... San Antonio has a new school of pharmacy but they wont graduate their first class until next year. There are retail positions to be found in both cities, but there will be more opportunities in SA than in Houston. Good luck in your search!! By the way, from the feedback I've heard from TX pharmacists over the past six years, Target, Sams or an independent retailer are your best choices, CVS, Walgreens and Wal-Mart have the reputation of being pretty tough on their pharmacists! Good luck!!

Default Pharmacist job market

The shortage of Pharmacists is over in most places, especially big cities! The chains will work the pharmacists longer and harder for less money. Thanks to the passivity of most pharmacists, the schools together with the drug store chains have conspired to flood the market w new pharmacists, while older pharmacists are looking for more part time work due to the weak economy. The schools have told the pharmacy students that they would have so many new roles for pharmacists, but as of yet most are empty promises. Most go into chains and work like slaves in the Drive In's. New technology and the rise of better trained technicians will also help keep the pharmacist job market tight and the available jobs more difficult!
