    Pros

    Fun work environment, everyone gets along and helps each other. Obtaining cross training in different areas is very easy. Returning customers!

    Cons

    Insurance is not the best. Great discount on non sale items but no discount on items that are on sale. Often work long hours and do not get the days off that you need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better report with employees is needed!

    Pros

    The pay is good and the 401k is also good. Bonus can be good and insurance is OK.

    Cons

    No payroll to support stores. Many store are often staffed with only one cashier and a manager - when the cashier goes on lunch it's only the manager on duty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the needed payroll in the stores to support customer service - sales and workload.

    A multi-billion dollar company that acts like it can't afford to pay its employees.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CVS is very stable financially so you know that your job is fairly safe -as long as you do your job well. The corporate leaders have high expectations for customer service and if you follow their models and guidelines customers are usually happy.

    Cons

    So much demanded of hourly employees that make barely a few dollars above minimum wage. CVS tries to pass off new programs that are focused only on the customer or patient as if it was truly concerned about people's health - it's all a gimmick for more money.

    Hourly employees such as cashiers, shift supervisors, and pharmacy techs (even leads) are paid so little that it cannot be a career. The predominant feeling is that these employees are also very replaceable - very little is done to try and keep these employees happy so that they want to stay and can survive financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company is built on the backs of cashiers and pharmacy techs - pay them accordingly.
