I worked at CVS Health part-time for more than a year

Pros

As a pharmacy technician, I really got to know the regular customers.

Cons

It seemed like the pharmacy was either really busy or no one at all was in there and we were twiddling our thumbs. Maybe that was just my location, but it got old after awhile.

    Pros

    The employee discount saves you a ton of money
    It's overall a comfortable work environment
    You become familiar with the district manager and other corporate affiliates
    Frequently offered overtime

    Cons

    Well....it's retail
    You have to be available ALL of the time
    Sometimes have to do way more than required
    Standing on feet for long periods of time
    dealing with difficult customers
    No longer using payroll checks you have to either use direct deposit or use a payroll debit card which consists of hidden fees and usage charges

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could make this job a lot more ideal if they recognize the employees more often for their work and offer more for compensation.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and if lucky, a good team environment.

    Cons

    I work as a pharmacy technician. There's a large disconnect between what corporate wants to accomplish, and what is actually possible. The pay isn't reflective of the amount of work that is done on a daily basis, and at the end of the day they (corporate) caters to the customer more than its own employees. A customer can have the best service and still complain for one little thing, and upper management comes down hard on the employee while giving the world to the customer to stay with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that CVS is a business that needs to be ran efficiently, but do not give stores a budget that barely gets us as a team through the day, and then ask us to handle every single customer like they are kings of the castle.
