Greetings from SUPERVALU Pharmacies! We hope that each of you are doing
well and looking forward to the summer. Here is a monthly update on the current
happenings at SUPERVALU Pharmacies.
Members of the SUPERVALU Pharmacies Pharmacy Recruiting team attended
the recent American Pharmacist Association (APhA) Meeting in Atlanta, March
16-20. The APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition is the largest annual
professional pharmacy meeting attracting thousands of pharmacists from all
practice settings, students, technicians, and industry representatives. The
meeting was a roaring success and our team of pharmacist recruiters led by
Director of Pharmacy Recruiting, Janeen Winnike, R.Ph., did an outstanding job
marketing, promoting and increasing the visibility of our Company while
showcasing why employment with SUPERVALU Pharmacies provides a
Rewarding Career and Fulfilling Life to all our pharmacists.
SUPERVALU Pharmacies new exhibit booth drew thousands of attendees to
meet and learn about opportunities from our pharmacy recruiting team. The three
day event allowed us to use different marketing initiatives each day of the
exhibits. Our biggest success on March 17 was linked to our St Patrick’s Day
themed exhibit. Attendees who visited the booth were able to pick up a clover
sticker for their name badge, St Patrick’s Day chocolate coins and have their
picture taken with our own leprechaun, Pharmacy Recruiter, Steven Keen, R.Ph.
Attendees waited in lines 20 deep to have their photo taken with our leprechaun
and speak with a member of the recruiting team. In addition to the exhibits,
Pharmacy Recruiters attended over 30 different networking, college receptions
and social events. The 2007 APhA Meeting was another successful event for
SUPERVALU Pharmacies, the employer of choice for pharmacy professionals.
SUPERVALU Pharmacies is dedicated to supporting the Colleges/Schools of
Pharmacy and its students. In March, over $100,000 worth of scholarships were
sent to the Colleges/Schools of Pharmacy that we partner with. We encourage
you to speak to your Dean or financial aid officer to find out about your
College/School scholarship requirements.
On behalf of all the members of the SUPERVALU Pharmacies teams, I would
like to extend our congratulations and best wishes to those students who are
graduating and have accepted a pharmacist position with us. As you prepare for
the NABPLEX and MJPE, we are also making preparations for you to join
SUPERVALU Pharmacies as a pharmacist. We would like to inform you that we
have scheduled professional development program (PDP I) training classes for
all new graduates this summer. The classes will be held at our training centers
around the country. More information on the upcoming classes will be sent to you
Good luck on your upcoming finals and we look forward to seeing you this
