Many people have worked there so long can't see out of the box - used to doing things the old way.
No flex time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add work at home/flex time. Continue to weed out bad IT management.

    Pros

    great benefits start at full time, which starts at 30 hrs a week. Learn the basics of retail.

    Cons

    stores aren't budgeted enough hours for proper customer service needs. Little room to move up, too many store managers are hired out of company.

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

    Pros

    This is the second time in my life that I wake up and can't wait to get to work. I love the company, and my job.
    The corporate culture is sensitive to employee performance and genuinely committed to personal growth and success. There are numerous opportunities to learn more through the internal CBT system, LearnNET. The people are all open and friendly, and always open to new members, and will at least listen to new ideas, even when they are already committed to another plan.

    Cons

    can be confusing to navigate the culture
    can be frustrating learning the rules of how to interact
    remote management can result in managers being out of touch with whats going on, on the ground where the front line staff are.
    There is very little tolerance for expressing any judgement. Even a wrong tone of voice can get you a meeting with your manager/director/VP depending on your level. This can be frustrating. However, there is always an opportunity to change and improve, and anyone will help you to understand and adapt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    having your manager in a different location can be a bit frustrating. sometimes it feels like my manager is out of touch with my responsibilities' challenges. as a result, I can never be sure if I have their support in my decisions. In addition, when my actions are comments on by others, sometimes, my manager jumps to a conclusion rather than ask me about the issue. My manager is inconsistent in the support, which make me hesitate to act, sometimes.
