  • Pharmacies and drug stores: 42%
  • General medical and surgical hospitals; private: 19%
  • Grocery stores: 8%
  • Department stores: 4%
  • Pharmacists work in pharmacies, including those in grocery and drug stores. They also work in hospitals and clinics. In most settings, they spend much of the workday on their feet.

    Most pharmacists work full time, although about 1 in 5 worked part time in 2014. Because many pharmacies are open at all hours, some pharmacists work nights and weekends
