Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Able to select merchandise for customers for endcaps, work closely with store associates as the Store Manager is also a cashier, stock person, janitor, merchandiser, parking lot sweeper, complete price changes.

Cons

No staff, many metrics to meet, attempt to provide outstanding customer service with minimal staff, unload trucks stocked well above your head, very task driven, not much time to analyze reports to effectively run the business unless you spend extra hours, no training budget for new hires, pharmacists are abused so they quit and floats are often just thrown in without any real training on the registers or with the systems, responsible for inventory levels but are often shipped product not needed when the warehouse needs to clean up. Will be fired for outdated just one piece of outdated merchandise on the sales floor or failure of ADA audit conducted by a third party untrained auditor, favoritism of pharmacy staff vs front store staff. Very little praise and a lot of negative if metrics are not being met, even if it is just one or two of the several that are required to be met.

District Managers will have their favorites no matter how good or bad a manager is. It is who you know vs how well you can run a store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give programs a chance to work before you change them. Less money spent on signing and add a few more payroll per store. Try treating front store staff as an equal to the pharmacy staff.
