    Pros

    large company with lots of potential for growth. very innovative in pharmacy operations and the business model

    Cons

    retail is required to run on minimal hours and meet service expectations of walking customers to items which is unrealistic when at times there is only one employee or two. sometimes only the manager.

    Pros

    The company make pharmacist work 14 hour shift 2 consecutive days, no time allowed to take
    lunch breaks. This becomes very dangerous for the public and the pharmacist.

    Cons

    The company offers high technology the work is usually fast. You can access patient records much faster from a centralized location.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to care for their employees. If employees are worked 14 hours then it is not providing health care but medical dangers.

    Pros

    Higher than average salary, lots of fast-paced work. Allowed me to develop my customer-relation skills. Always work to be done, no sitting around. You get to leave exactly when your shift is over.

    Cons

    No clear expectations. Management didn't really know what they were doing. You were often expected to do way more than what you could accomplish. Standards weren't really standards and we were forced to hide the way that we normally accomplished things when the district manager came to visit.

  11. I enjoyed the job and the coworkers but the customers were stressful.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pros. I did not have a good experience.

    Cons

    The manager was not managing as much as flirting with me and customers.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that other CVS stores are professional and put together the way they should be, but this store if not under proper management. I felt like I only got the job due to my looks and the fact that I am single with a mixed race son. It made me uncomfortable and I ended up quiting because of it and of course telling them I quit because of transportation, not my comfort level.
