    Pros

    company is changing their product line in order to continue to improve the quality of health especially by eliminating tobacco products in 2014.

    Cons

    at times the expectations are too unrealistic when challenged with minimal hours allocation versus budgeted sales plans especially while attempting to deliver excellent customer service

    Advice to Management

    walk the stores during unplanned visits to get a more realistic idea on how difficult it can be to deliver a clean and neat store with minimal hours while still being graded on customer service efforts

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement, competitive pay, higher ups make you feel appreciated for your hard work

    Cons

    All of the employees are not treated the same CVS has a union so the employees that have been with the company the longest are favored over other employees even if don't work as hard as the other workers.

    Advice to Management

    To be more confused on job performance other then how long someone has been with the company.

    Pros

    The pros for me are that I work with good people within the store. We have a solid team and only rarely do we have issues with staff.

    Cons

    Unfortunately CVS does not pay well. Management only gets paid a few dollars above minimum wage (excluding the store manager). Corporate expects too much out of store workers for too little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing great, it's the people at corporate that need to have their eyes opened.

    I have been working at CVS Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent hrs, if you have alot of retail experience decent pay. Can have the option to float to other stores and learn pharmacy.

    Cons

    Open everyday of the year, not enough help. Short staffed, not big raises, unstable hrs., benefits cost a lot and suck.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take your good employees for granted, appreciate what gets done with circumstances. Treat everyone fair.

    Pros

    Had a good manager who was a good mentor. He set a good example of high standards. The cafeteria really promoted healthy meals. No smoking on company property was helpful for anyone that wanted to quit. Upper management keeps employees informed of goals for the year.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits have decreased and employee share has gone up. HSA accounts are hard to get used to. Some positions are more stressful than others.

    Advice to Management

    Explain the reasons for an action when possible.

    Pros

    Great stock options, Overall good benefits

    Cons

    No schedule break, High stress, Lack of support from upper management, under staffed pharmacies for demand of how quickly rx's should be filled.

    Advice to Management

    Support the pharmacy manager when the manager raises concerns over lack of store help. The well being of employees and customers should be top concern over being 5 hours over budget.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule to a point, People I employed

    Cons

    Too much work for pay and too many hours. Not enough time to get all required projects done and too little payroll for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. When your managers turnover is as bad as a cashier you are doing something wrong. Payroll helps customer service surveys that you are so keen on.

    Pros

    Experience in inventory in the pharmacy/taking the role as the lead technicians assistant with all inventory tasks/organization skills/pay raise from pharmacy technician

    Cons

    Depending on the volume of your store, even with two people in charge of inventory tasks and responsibilities, it can be very difficult to keep up week by week. Keeping up with communication with the other staff members and assigning certain jobs to others can help the position in higher volume, non-24 hour locations.

    Pros

    The diversity of the company, and how I felt like an asset to the pharmacy team. Learned to really work with people, and develop great customer service skills. Benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Scheduling, scheduling, scheduling. Hours were always being cut, and with no set schedule but a week or two in advance, it was hard to plan my personal life around it. Could have just been issues with my specific store.

    Advice to Management

    Give the stores more hours, so they can provide better, if not excellent customer service, as expected. Other than that, everything was great.
