    CVS, not all they're cracked up to be. Not a good company. Try not to work there. (if your a pharmacy tech)

    Pros

    The only pro I could think of is there is an employee discount on the merchandise. So several times I got off a shift on the way out the door i would buy some food for the house and it would be convenient.

    Cons

    Theres many cons to working at cvs:
    1.) In order to get hired you have to do this incredibly long series of online questionairres. Like literally over 1 hundred pages worth of stuff. They didnt tell me till it was too late that if i didnt complete a certain number of the modules that I would be fired. Its the most ridiculous standards I have ever seen in my life for a job that was $9.15 per hour as a pharmacy tech. I paid 16,000 for pharmacy tech school, and this is what one of the biggest pharmacies in the country pays. Insane. Horrible.
    2.) The starting pay for a pharmacy tech at CVS (atleast in east Austin) is $10.65 per hour (the store manager told me this to my face) this is regardless of what schooling, etc. he said with experience the max a pharm tech starts at is 12.65. This is terribly below market value as every single company outside of walgreens and cvs pays more for their starting pharmacy techs without experience (the highest ive heard of was government payed at 16$ per hour, starting out). I was a tech trainee so I made $9.15 per hour. An abysmal rate even for a trainee. This compnay pays their pharmacy techs INCREDIBLY low. I talked to pharmacy techs all the time- cvs, walgreens, seton hospital, victory medical, etc. CVS pays less than all of them, hands down. This is horribly offensive for a company that prides themselves on doing the right thing in business (getting rid of cigarettes).
    3.) The training system at CVS for their pharmacy techs is not good. They literally treat the tech trainees exaclty like the regular techs. I was given very little training apart from the first day or two which was mostly computer work. The pharmacy is extremely busy with non stop customers for several hours straight. At new hiring orientation they promised us we would get 2- 15 minute break and a half hour lunch. My pharmacist at my store NEVER EVER let us get 15 minute breaks, and I had to practically beg to get my 30 minute lunch. The pharmacist got mad when i said i had to take a day off. The pharmacist got mad when i asked about scheduled drugs, which i wasnt trained on. The pharmacist got mad at me for all sorts of dumb stuff that i wasnt made clear about. All in all, the training for new inexperienced workers, atleast in the pharmacy, is absolutely horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Best advice to management: If you want good employees you have to pay good. This is just common sense. Also, please have a more complex system for training new pharmacy techs. I was put out on the pharmacy floor for a busy store before even having proper computer training, before even having proper training on the system for scheduled drugs (which is a bit weird with the little binder).
    Personally, this review has no real bearing on the business aspect of CVS. They obviously make profits at what they do. Im not saying they dont make a lot of money. Im saying they treat their pharmacy personell like CRAP! Even both of my pharmacists were complaining about working there. One of them said she was already applying to other companies with bigger pharmacies.
