Hourly wages for pharmacy technicians can very greatly depending on the work site. Trends over the last few years in Washtenaw County have shown an increase in pharmacy technician wages due to the high demand for qualified individuals.

Retail chain stores, retail independent stores and long-term care pharmacists tend to have lower wages. Hospitals, home health care agencies, pharmacy software companies and pharmaceutical manufacturers tend to have higher wages.

Recent Statistics:

Average hourly rate: $12.39 (approximately $25,771 annual)
(from a 2001 survey of Michigan pharmacy technicians by the Michigan Pharmacists Association).
