CVS Pharmacy: Not a bad place to work.

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee)
Mount Dora, FL

ProsAlmost all of the pharmacists and technicians I worked with were friendly and very competent, which makes any job infinitely nicer.

Apparently the pay for full time technicians who have been with the company make a very decent salary for retail technicians.

CVS paid for all of my training, and also offers technicians a free shot at taking the PTCB.

Free flu shots.

Managers were very friendly and worked around my school schedule.

Opportunities to pick up extra hours at nearby stores.

ConsIf you aren't hired on as a full-time technician, you can't become one unless you work for 6 months straight at over 32 hours a week.

Salary is initially very low ($7.85 an hour jumping up to $8.50 after my state licensure)

Working at stores with less competent coworkers significantly increases amount of stress.

Seemingly very little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff slower stores with new employees so that they can learn everything, not just production or pick-up. Rotate skilled employees out to busier stores.

Pay your technicians better. I can start working in the Walmart deli cutting meat for almost $9 an hour, a job that requires significantly less training and responsibility.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
