Does WAG classify its pharmacists as exempt or non-exempt pursuant to the FLSA?

It may vary by state, however most pharmacists sign a contract to be salaried and with that they become are part of the exempt status. I cannot answer for the hourly pharmacists, but I would imagine they are also exempt due to demands and staffing-most notably, they cannot leave the pharmacy open without a pharmacist present.

I'm a full-time salaried floater pharmacist yet my salary gets reduced if there aren't shifts to work. Is this legal?

Bobbyjo, If they have no shifts for you then demand them to find you a spot as mid shift Rph. IT is Wag problem not yours. Don't take NO for answer. Then you will get your full salary otherwise your are screwed. You don't have to use your sick days or vacation days either. Stand up and say No Find me a shift or pay me.
