Here at OptumRx , a part of the UnitedHealth Group family of businesses, we've earned the trust of more than 64 million people who rely on us for the prescription drugs that improve their health and lifestyles.

As a Senior Compounding Pharmacy Technician , you'll be responsible for various duties related to the fulfillment of prescription orders and dispensing any or all of the following: unit doses, specialty pharmaceuticals, injectables, IV, enterals and related supplies following state and federal regulations and company policies and procedures.

  • Maintain clean room environment and daily / weekly / monthly cleaning of room and equipment according to SOPs

It's a fast paced, high volume environment where accuracy is essential.

You’ll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
