A great place to learn the retail business, but not the best-paying job...

Current Employee - Cashier/Shift Supervisor in Eden Prairie, MN

I have been working at CVS Health part-time for more than a year

Pros

I have been a cashier for about 2 years and am currently in training to be a shift supervisor. Overall, this can be a great place to work if you put the effort into it. After a while of working there, you'll have the job mastered. Surprisingly, many of the customers are friendly and are great to talk to. Management will help you to move up in the company if you're willing to work for it.

Cons

The job is very routine. There are tasks that are required to be done in order for the store to function smoothly. Sometimes this can be difficult when the store is busy and you have to spend most of your day helping customers. Pay raises are almost non-existent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do what needs to be done for the store to operate smoothly: Give more hours!!! This would keep the store in a much better condition. In doing this, it would also give us the opportunity to turn our direction on customer service. Also, so many of your employees work hard but aren't receiving the benefits they deserve from an employer.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits package, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Ridiculous workload, low pay, too much Corporate red tape, you are forced to work through any and all dangerous weather conditions (snow, ice), too many positions have been phased out with their job responsibilities simply handed to management with no monetary reward but double the stress. Managers are threatened with write-ups regularly to force them to get the worload done which means managers must work at least 60 hrs a week just to try to keep up. And that trickles down to the cashiers, as well. Stores are given just enough hrs weekly to employ one supervisor for each shift and one cashier for SOME of that shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at spreadsheets and charts, start spending time in stores to see how your idiocy is affecting your 'culture'. If your employees weren't so busy trying to get their insane workload done, customer service would shoot back up. Customers get very tired of trying to track down the employees for help. You never have to do that at Walgreens.
