Pharmacist salary: Seattle to double salaries

RICHMOND, Va.

— Pharmacist salaries in Seattle, where the number of new jobs has been on a downward trend, are set to double over the next two years, a company spokesman said Monday.

The salary increases come after the company expanded its pharmacist workforce to 4,000 employees last year and a few months ago increased its pharma sales team to 250 people.

The company expects to have the new pharmacists on the payroll in September.

The spokesman said the increase will be in line with the industry standard and would be paid on a per-unit basis.

Pharmacy executives said that they were pleased to see the company’s salary increase. 

“We’re thrilled that our employees are able to continue to get their jobs done while we keep the pharmacy industry in a strong position to support our growth and our growth in the future,” said Sharon L. Brown, vice president of corporate operations. 

In addition, the company said it will pay its workers a living wage, will continue to expand its pharmacy workforce and hire more pharmacists.

Pharma has had a strong recovery in recent years after years of steep declines in the early 2000s.

Pharmacists have made an increasing percentage of their jobs through automation and the growth of other professions.

Pharxion Pharmaceuticals, which operates Seattle-based BioPharma, is planning to expand to the Seattle area in 2019.

The Seattle area has seen a sharp increase in the number and types of jobs for pharmacists, with an average of 13 new jobs in the last five years, according to the city’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Pharms are among the largest employers in the city, with more than 20,000 pharmacists working for the companies that supply the medicine to the more than 7 million residents of the Seattle metro area. 

The Seattle pharmacist pay scale is based on the national average for all jobs, but that is not set in stone, the bureau says. 

Pharmaceuticals companies have been investing in new technology to improve the health and safety of the medicines they make, such as artificial intelligence and the development of more efficient packaging and labeling processes.
