A spokesperson said that beginning Wednesday, pharmacists will work 32 hours; they will still be considered full-time employees for benefits purposes, however. Along with that, pay will be reduced to reflect the hours worked. According to spokesperson Danna Robinson, the move affects full-time pharmacists in about 200 Harris Teeter stores. She explained the changes were made after a review of the company's "pharmacy staffing model to ensure that we continue to remain viable and competitive in the market," adding that "the majority of our competitors are basing their new full-time positions on a 32-hour work week" as well.
