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

    Pros

    Meeting new people and having the regulars come in year after year. Working the front and the back part of the store.

    Cons

    Being scheduled the whole 8 hr shift on the register. Not having 2 days off in a row. Memos from manager stating no employees are to put in for time off on the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have family we would like to spend holidays with. We need 2 days off to reenergize so you can get the best of me at work.

    I worked at CVS Caremark full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -you can work at multiple stores, meaning more hours for you
    -for the most part, friendly coworkers
    -they dumped me in a busy environment, i learn faster this way
    -sufficient training, i had no experience
    -Overall, its an excellent company, with good oppurtunies

    Cons

    -i got fired, no warning, for allowing my uncle to use my discount card for his baby grandson's otc med. which is fair and all, but what the f*ck.
    -the infinite hours i mentioned? Pharmacists from all over like to call you at all hours to come in for a few hours
    -wearing a shirt and tie everyday under a lab coat got tedious, i like walgreen's scrubs
    -all of the locations ive worked at were sweat shop like work
    -stupid customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    how about not worrying about the numbers for once, and actually give a d*mn about other peoples live's?
