    Great beginner job

    Cashier/Photo Lab (Current Employee)
    Garland, TX

    ProsEveryone is really nice. You get paid for training and that is easy. It was my second job and i was 16, but they started me at 9 an hour (which is great for being 16 haha). I loved it so much. They we're also one of the only companies that didn't care about my dreadlocks or gauges.

    ConsThis kind of goes with everywhere, but there can be managers that are just not nice one bit. Kind of on a power trip of somewhat, but all of the great co-workers and the nice managers make up for that one mean one. And like i said, they can be anywhere, and it's probably not like that at every CVS

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone :)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    CVS/Caremark was an enjoyable place to work.

    ProsThe culture in the IT department was innovative, they give employees training, allow personal growth, and promote from within.

    Fabulous company and culture

    Supervisor/PBM (Current Employee)
