    Easy work for the most part, but never enough time to get stuff done. Company pays dirt wages.

    I have been working at CVS Health

    Pros

    As long as you're not a manager, things go pretty smoothly... Clock in, work, clock out.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't seem to want their employees to succeed. They're more likely to tear then down in visits instead of building up a good team. They don't pay well at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay livable wages.

    Fast paced environment with big promises but little time for training.

    I worked at CVS Health part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The location that I worked at had a great sense of team, everyone worked really well together. The pay was competitive and there were a lot of promises to advance quickly into the management of the store.

    Cons

    Management assumed that everyone understood the basics of CVS methods, even though it was never covered in the training. And the biggest problem was that the weekly schedule was only available four days before the week began and the only copy was printed at the store. I couldn't drive to the store every week just to find out what I would be working in a few days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to make sure that the workers are able to learn the basics.
    Update your company so that the schedule can be available online. In a society where you can pay your bills with a mobile phone, you should be able to see a work schedule online.

    Great coworkers (potentially). 10% off regular brand items and 25% off CVS brand items.

    Pros

    Worked with great people, and I was able to learn a lot about the pharmacy business. It was a nice place to be!

    Cons

    Dealing with difficult customers was definitely a con, but I assume that's in most customer service related industries.
