A great first job, but a learning experience in a lot of wrong ways.

Current Employee - Photo Lab Technician in New York, NY

I have been working at CVS Health part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Flexible hours; convenient locations; no experience in retail or related fields needed to be interviewed or hired; they look to hire a very diverse staff of people in age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, etc.; good employee discount on merchandise

Cons

Poor salary; poor benefits; disorganized management; internal theft a huge issue at my particular location and was never really addressed in a way that punished those responsible (always punished or somehow greatly inconvenienced entire staff); huge disconnect between cashiers, those on the floor, those in pharmacy, and those in photo, so customers would get bounced around to various employees for help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't promote people who are incompetent because you think it will improve retention. Even if you think folks are overqualified and might leave, give them the opportunity to grow in the position. They may leave, but they'll certainly quit if they're not stimulated.

    Current Employee - Management Trainee in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and I cant complain about my salary as a store manager trainee. Flexible schedule. CVS has many EXCELLENT career opportunities and training options.

    Cons

    AMAZING amount of physical labor with extremely limited hours to schedule proper labor to actual demand. Some stores have the luxury to operate in "ivory towers" while other store far surpass others in sales and customer traffic but have to scrape by with far less hours and coincidentally, productivity and service scores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic when allocating labor to stores based more on sales/performance than JUST hours open.
