Pharmacies and drug stores 43%
Hospitals; state, local, and private 23%
Grocery stores 8%
Department stores 6%

Pharmacists work in pharmacies, including those in grocery and drug stores. They also work in hospitals and clinics. In most settings, they spend much of the workday on their feet.

Most pharmacists work full time, although about 21 percent worked part time in 2010. Because many pharmacies are open at all hours, some pharmacists work nights and weekends.
