Pharmacy Technician Jobs in Benton, IL

Assist pharmacists as required, providing support in areas such as packaging medications and maintaining records. Pharmacy technicians are typically responsible for administrative duties related to drug management. They prepare and label medications, perform routine inspections to ensure that all drugs are being stored properly, monitor/replenish pharmacy equipment/supplies when necessary, and handle client issues regarding insurance companies. Because many of their tasks involve data processing, they are capable with computers and have a working knowledge of general/brand drug names, doses, and classifications.

Pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist, who may request that they complete additional duties. Examples of potential assignments include training other employees and interfacing with suppliers.
