Poorly managed from top down

Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

Pros20% discount. Other than that, not many pros to working for this company

ConsNormally, you have TWO people running a store, which just isn't enough, especially on Saturday and Sunday nights. They have skeleton crews, so if someone is sick and calls out and you are already working that day, unless you find someone to come in from another store who is off, you have to stay and work the other person's shift. I had to work many 16 hour days. If you are a shift supervisor, like myself, you are expected to basically be "on-call" in the event someone doesn't show up. If you are sick and have to call out, you have to make up for it later in the week. Just this past week I had a terrible fever and in order to make up for calling out, I had to close Thursday getting off at 10 pm, and then had to be back Friday morning to unload the truck at 5 am. Also, the DM's like to threaten your job in order to motivate you to meet their metric standards, which I find to be a poor motivator. DM's also like to hold meetings via conference call that you must attend, even on your days off. Overall, this is a very poor work environment. Management has unrealistic expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company needs to allow for more hours at each store and hire more people. There should never be less than three colleagues working at a time to ensure optimal customer satisfaction as well as ensure all tasks are completed daily. Also, Regional and District managers need to act more professionally and not throw a tantrum on the sales floor if something is not done correctly. Also, communication needs to improve so that colleagues are aware of changes made by DM's and RM's so that those changes can be implemented correctly and in a timely manner, before the RM comes to the store and throws a tantrum.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't do it...

    Training Store Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    I worked at CVS Caremark full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Pay was good. benefits were good. Cons: There is zero labor budgeted for stores. It is a manager and a clerk all day… Advice to Senior Management: Increased staff will help improve sales. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
