    Try to do the work of 5 people at once with minimum hours, minimum pay, and upper management that doesn't value you.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A good choice if you're in school or have another job, as (other than around the holidays) I have often struggled with 10-20 hour work weeks.
    Possibly a good choice if you want to start in the front store and take the PTCB to get back into the pharmacy for experience.

    Cons

    The hours are extremely unreliable and unreasonable. CVS expects the be able to operate stores as "minimum hours stores" (which, so far in my experience, is most of them) but still expects results as if you had a whole team working.
    Shifts will consist of two people in the front store: one cashier and one manager. As a cashier you mean might be able to balance your workload, but as a shift supervisor it is 90% of the time IMPOSSIBLE to finish everything required of you. You will also be required to manage loss prevention (since LP is never around), covering breaks and lunches (leaving you, at times, alone in the store), stop projects to check in vendors, manage customer complaints, help when the line gets unmanageable, etc. It really is a miracle to finish everything you need to finish in a shift.
    Every individual is held "accountable" for their own training and the entire store. If you miss a training module, even as a cashier, due to not being informed there was one due, expect a write-up and possibly being removed from the schedule.
    You can also expect to be actively discouraged from taking sick days and being hassled when you do. CVS expects that you yourself will find coverage for your shift if you are sick, including non-management employees. If you are unable to find coverage, have fun showing up anyway.
    You are never given enough time to really finish anything as there's s corporate visitor of some kind every two or three weeks.
    Upper management is uninvolved and cares little for their employees. Even in cases of abuse from "customers," you will be reprimanded for "customer service scores."
    The most important thing to CVS is their surveys and metrics. One of those metrics is "walk to item," which involves walking customers to the aisle when they're looking for something. Don't forget that there are only ever two people working, and the manager is usually somewhere in the back, so as the cashier you are supposed to walk every customer to the item while maintaining your line, greeting every customer at the door, as well as additional projects depending on the day.
    If you are the store manager, this list goes on: salary pay and 60-70 hour workweeks, taking vacation days just so you can pull in another employee (and still working yourself), and more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either increase hours so the workload can be spread between more people, or at least pay your teams more since you typically have teams of 7 (entire store, across all shifts) doing the work of twice that many people.
