A great first job, but a learning experience in a lot of wrong ways.

Photo Lab Technician (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsFlexible hours; convenient locations; no experience in retail or related fields needed to be interviewed or hired; they look to hire a very diverse staff of people in age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.; good employee discount on merchandise

ConsPoor salary; poor benefits; disorganized management; internal theft a huge issue at my particular location and was never really addressed in a way that punished those responsible (always punished or somehow greatly inconvenienced entire staff); huge disconnect between cashiers, those on the floor, those in pharmacy, and those in photo, so customers would get bounced around to various employees for help.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't promote people who are incompetent because you think it will improve retention. Even if you think folks are overqualified and might leave, give them the opportunity to grow in the position. They may leave, but they'll certainly quit if they're not stimulated.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Employees not valued, paid horribly, worked to the point of abuse

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    I have been working at CVS Caremark full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Health benefits available, though every year the cost increases. Almost everyone I work with, like I, have had… Cons: Employees treated like slaves--expected to work 10-12 hours, on weekends, no overtime, no comp days provided -- NADA. Pay is below average by industry… Advice to Senior Management: Start valuing your employees that make your company the success that it is on Wall Street. Bad morale is rampant here because management doesn't… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    I would never recommend anyone to work for this company.

    Shift Supervisor B (Current Employee) Allen, TX

    I have been working at CVS Caremark full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Great health benefits. Job is easy (when given appropriate resources) Cons: Workload not proportional to payroll. Extremely understaffed. Advice to Senior Management: If upper management quit slashing payroll budgets and increasing workloads… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
