    Great pharmacists and technicians but lack of motivation due to limited pay for such volume of work

    I have been working at CVS Caremark part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great system
    Flexible schedule
    Great customers
    Some opportunities

    Cons

    Huge volume of work for a little pay
    System has flows which makes CVS employees look incompetent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivating employees to provide best customer skills by offering competitive pays and recognition.
    While we are given appreciative tokens of oranges on New Years for our high SSS scores, our bills pile up and hours are cut. The system has flows in PCQ where it doesnt recognize comments made by previous techs about customer's preference of call and cant recognize new rxs for same meds (if called about more refills). Advice to management skills: recognize individuals that drive company's success and make hard choice of employing competitive technicians to benefit the company, instead of amateurs. With any knowledgeable tech who will provide quality service and make change in SSS scores a competitive salary should be offered.

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

    Current Employee - Photo Lab Technician  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - Photo Lab Technician in New York, NY

    I have been working at CVS Caremark part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible 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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Don'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.
