Pros

Almost all of the pharmacists and technicians I worked with were friendly and very competent, which makes any job infinitely nicer. Apparently the pay for full time technicians who have been with the company make a very decent salary for retail technicians. CVS paid for all of my training, and also offers technicians a free shot at taking the PTCB. Free flu shots. Managers were very friendly and worked around my school schedule. Opportunities to pick up extra hours at nearby stores.

Cons

If you aren't hired on as a full-time technician, you can't become one unless you work for 6 months straight at over 32 hours a week. Salary is initially very low ($7.85 an hour jumping up to $8.50 after my state licensure) Working at stores with less competent coworkers significantly increases amount of stress. Seemingly very little opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Staff slower stores with new employees so that they can learn everything, not just production or pick-up. Rotate skilled employees out to busier stores. Pay your technicians better. I can start working in the Walmart deli cutting meat for almost $9 an hour, a job that requires significantly less training and responsibility.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits were decent albeit raises should not be counted on

    Cons

    . Constant threats and harassment by the local DM. I got calls from other store mangers to "watch your back" Was sent to a store for the sole purpose of being written up so I could be terminated without unemployment. One honorable SM refused the DM'S request.. Once worked 9 straight 12hr days, no OT of course, add in 2.20min drive time each day

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the SM and think "why are so many SM leaving ?" Maybe, just maybe there is a problem with your DM
