: Pharmacy aides help licensed pharmacists by answering phones, stocking shelves, and running the cash register. They also maintain patient files, prepare insurance papers, and take inventory of medicines and supplies. Some also clean pharmacy equipment. They may work evenings or weekends; some even work overnight shifts in 24- hour pharmacies.
