Hours of Work

Your hours of work will depend on your workplace. While many community pharmacies serve the public during regular business hours and slightly later (9 a.m. to 8 p.m. or 9 p.m.), some are open even later, and a few, 24 hours a day. It is common that community pharmacies are open seven days per week. Pharmacists at hospitals and long-term care facilities may have to work during evenings and overnight. An average work shift for a pharmacist is 8 hours.
