Pros

You can work flexible hours, and work at multiple stores. Your co-workers tend to be nice decent people. You also get store discounts.

Cons

Management has a fear based culture and that fear is passed all the way down the chain of command. They try to pass it onto to the in-store employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CVS needs to focus more on help patients fill scripts easily without too many questions. Calling patients multiple times tends to anger most patients. The different programs need to focus more on having fewer patient contact but increased relevance and continuity of information. There should be a more efficient way to note customer information and special requests. Also there needs to be a re-evaluation of the fear based corporate culture. Employee perform best through incentive based rewards not threats which lead to organizational apathy which almost all in-store employees at CVS have.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very large company with decent benefits unless you get laid off.

    Cons

    Old fashioned "patriarchal" style of company. Communication is authoritarian and often threatening, with exclamation marks after stern warnings about deadlines or procedures. Benefits providers are constantly changing, to CVS Caremark's benefit, no doubt. Employee costs of benefits are always rising. Recently they restructured PTO benefits, and slashed them across the board, and eliminated anniversary milestone rewards. A couple of years ago, despite record profits, the meager annual pay increase was cancelled, because it "wouldn't be prudent" with the economy as it was. It wasn't cancelled for all, of course, the VP above my department included the word "most" when he informed our team. The performance review system is constantly changing, as well. Every year a new set of bureaucratic hoops to jump through to hopefully obtain a modest pay increase or bonus, which they appear to be trying very hard to avoid giving you. Always asking for more from the employee while giving less if at all possible. Raises and promotions seemed few and far between amongst my direct coworkers. My salary was low for the industry, according to many calculators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less greedy. Treat employees with genuine respect.
