Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Albany, NY
Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in Albany, NY

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

Pros

flexible hours
good intro to healthcare and pharmaceuticals
awesome learning opportunity about drugs, pharmacy, business, laws, prescriptions, etc. for pre-med and pre-pharm and pharm students
get to meet with and talk to patients/customers and make them happy, etc. if you are a people person, customer service etc then this job is good for u

Cons

pharmacist always keeps and eye on you (not much autonomy) always tries to boss you around basically distracting you from your primary work, but then gets mad when you dont finish your assigned primary work
they try to blame lost drugs on you (thanks to prev. dishonest employees)
they want you to work your ass off for such little pay (if it was about $3-4 an hr higher, it would have been much better)
they dress you up in a tie and give you a white coat, but you are getting paid basically minimum wage. not enough pay
they dont hire enough techs, so during the busiest times of operation, you are basically swamped trying to manage work that should be done between 3 techs (1 tech does the work for 3 techs, while the pharmacist sits on her butt eating food and drinking diet soda)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

it all depends on the location. management can make life hell for you or will make life easy for you. if a store is doing bad, or if a district is doing bad, yelling at employees isnt going to get much done. dont focus on how quickly we answer phones or drivethrus and etc and instead see how happy our customers leave the store.

    Pros

    Well organized companie with good training programs

    The hours are cut so thin that it make management work very dificult. Since the management has to perform task that would normally fall on associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot claim being customer driven if you have no people on the floor
