    I worked at Longs Drug

    Pros

    Store level employees not only are coworkers but a family relationship is established.

    Cons

    Hourly pay rates are lower than average and raises are very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember if it wasn't for the little people at store level, customers would not continue to make that company grow. They work hard and give it their all even when it goes unnoticed.

    I have been working at Longs Drug part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, new relationships, some great customers, leaning new things

    Cons

    A lot of rude customer's that think they are better and always know better. Can get very hectic and busy and people are very impatient. CVS makes things a lot more complicated and their system is extremely slow and needs to be updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the employees are saying in their comments and not only because a lot complained about it but even the small things especially to make it easier on everyone

    I worked at Longs Drug

    Pros

    Lunch break time, discount, moderately laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Not much advancement, managers aren't receptive to your needs. As with retail, the hours are junk. Had to work on weekends and at least one night a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to listen to employees & develop them to where they want to be

    I worked at Longs Drug full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good location, Good leadership, nice work life balance, employees were dedicated and cared about the company and their personal contribution. Would have stayed longer if company did not get taken over by CVS

    Cons

    Was not the most advanced in technology and systems. Investments in supply chain and inventory management were paying off - and move toward centralizing inventory assortment decisions were paying off - however, CVS takeover changed the direction.
