I have been working at CVS Caremark

Pros

I enjoy working with the public and like working at CVS. CVS matches money put into and retirement IRA

Cons

I like working AT CVS, not FOR CVS. CVS does match your contributions to an IRA. But, for the most part, part-time employees get few benefits from this company. I was really excited when I saw a posting for scholarships for CVS employees's children - until I looked closer and it was only for full-time employees. We get no paid vacation and our employee discount is not good. I worked for Osco before CVS bought us out and we accrued vacation hours and receive a very good employee discount. CVS is just making more money off of it's employees instead of giving them a break.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please treat your part-time employees better - especially the ones who are loyal and have stayed with the company.

    I have been working at CVS Caremark

    Pros

    One of the things that I like most is the schedule flexibility. Whenever I needed time off, it was always given. Not sure if this is how it is at other stores but my stores management was great. The job is easy to learn and you get to deal with some fun people at times. Co-workers are great to work with; I've never been in an argument with one, been there just over a year.

    Cons

    The main thing that I do not like the job is the pay. Starting was 7.50 and after a year was only increased by 2% (7.65). Talked to the manager about it and apparently the .15 increase was a big deal to the people in charge. I will just say that dealing with the public is not always easy lol.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If this is talking about store management, I would give my store a 5/5.

    No opinion of CEO
