    Pros

    Once they finally hired some technicians, they were great to work with.

    Cons

    They can't keep employees. The entire pharmacy staff is overworked and underpaid. What the company tells you to do and what store management tells you to is completely different. Everything is about numbers, not patient care or employee health.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough techs to accomplish daily tasks and safely take care of customer needs.

    Pros

    A Chance to Earn Extra Hours When Other Stores Need Help

    Cons

    Low Pay, Bad Hours, Lack of Security in areas that really need it.

    Advice to Management

    A person can't get 70 things done in a hour period and maintain politeness. At some point it's not even real anymore.

    Pros

    Cvs health is a progressive leader in the healthcare field. Great benefits
    Including 401K with matching employer contribution based on salary.

    Cons

    Too much focus on metrics and business initiatives at the expense of
    the service needs of the business. Staffing cut to substandard
    levels resulting in inability to properly meet the needs of our customers
    and stressful working conditions for our staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to staff stores properly in order to truly service our customers and
    create a positive working environment for
    its employees

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Not enough hours or help to keep everything under control. Falling behind is an everyday thing. No life-work balance. No more advancement after reaching manager position. DM positions reserved for RPHS.

    Advice to Management

    A Pharmacist can not be a manager just as a manager can not be a pharmacist. Plenty of Rphs fresh out of school that do not have a clue of management and just "trickle down" info and trendy words from above without any practical meaning or help. Pay attention or will end up like Sears.

    Pros

    Good money, good hours. Nothing else.

    Cons

    I disliked every single person I worked with. The management tried to be overly friendly, trying to be friends outside of work, and then when I didn't accept that they became overly rude.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sucking.

  9. Less is more? Severe cutbacks in payroll hours, but tasks are unrelenting, even impossible to complete.

    Pros

    Pay and every benefit you can image.

    Cons

    Insane expectations, high stress, no work/ life balance

    Advice to Management

    come work in a busy store, toss truck for 4 days; because labor is non existent, complete seasonal sets, ad sets, push overstock and ensure inventory integrity, then and only then, can you know the extent of your impact on employees.

    Pros

    I've made some good friends as coworkers, they trained me to be a pharmacy technician, I do enjoy having the discount card, and the flexibility in my schedule while I am a full time student.

    Cons

    Excessive work hours with a high turn over rate, no breaks, no sitting or time to eat. You definitely do not get paid enough at this place for the amount of work and exceedingly high expectations they have. Also just found out I can no longer receive a raise as apparently being a CPhT I have capped at $12. What a joke. The company cares more about their money than employees. It feels like no matter how hard you work its still not enough for this place and you are graded on every aspect of your day. More work with less help leading to dissatisfied customers too. I am totally burnt out

    Advice to Management

    Theres too much to even write here.

    High workload
    Low opportunities
    High stress
    Low moral
    High turnover

    Advice to Management

    No reason
