What does a pharmacia tech do on their job?
Please only answer this question if you have actually been a pharmacy tech or have talked with someone who has been a pharmacy tech. I know that a pharmacy technician is basically an assistant to a pharmacist. But what job duties are they typically responsible for on that type of job? I realize that they typically get the prescription and handle the cash transactions from the customers. They also check insurance information and make sure that is updated in the computer.

Do they actually process the actual prescriptions, such as pulling the pills from the dispenser into the small bottles, or any other issues relating to that? Do they need to understand medical terminology or chemistry?
