Located just a stone's throw from award-winning beaches, nightlife, sporting events, shopping and restaurants, Delray Beach has all the charm of a small community with all of the amenities of a big city. The 1-800-PetMeds office is located directly across the street from the Tri-Rail station, providing transportation by train north to West Palm Beach and south to Fort Lauderdale and Miami, with numerous stops in between. Trolley service is also available from the Tri-Rail station to downtown Delray Beach.
1-800-PetMeds is a Drugfree Workplace, and employment is contingent upon successfully passing a pre-employment Drug Screen and Background Check.
1-800-PetMeds seeks Registered Pharmacy Technicians to help complete the authorization process for pending prescription orders from veterinarians via fax, mailed-in prescription, or phone calls to vet's offices or clinics. With direction from our team of Licensed Pharmacists, help ensure the accuracy and appropriateness of all prescription orders shipped.
All of our Pharmacy Technicians go through a 2-week training program in which they are paired with one of our designated trainers to learn about the prescription authorization process as well as become familiar with 1-800-PetMed's products, software, policies and procedures.
