Pros

Close to home, part time work available

Cons

The store I worked in had one manager and one cashier for each shift. The manager is in other parts of the store doing their job or outside smoking, so I was the only person in the front. Did not feel safe at night. You are expected to greet every person who walks in the door, as well as stock, clean, print photos, face shelves, answer phone. Very difficult when you are stocking a shelf at the back of the store, to run up and greet a customer coming in. Training was not good. The "onboarding" day was a woman talking about the values of CVS, but she also talked a lot about her children, and how she was the girl in high school who got into fights in the restroom. Managers at the store were very impatient and sometimes rude if I asked for help with something I didn't know.

Advice to Management

Hire more employees for each store!

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the people there. Learned a lot from the pharmacist about the prescription drug and pharmacy industries. Got to work with a lot of state of the art equipment and was thoroughly impressed with the design and layout of the facility.

    Cons

    Very, very demanding. They squeeze all they can out of you and don't give you much help or resources (manpower, hours, et cetera) to do it with. (Hard to do with a shirt and tie.) Some measurements they use to determine performance also seem a little ridiculous. Management can be very critical. A lot of dumping on you about this and that; never seems to be enough or give you any credit. Easy to get burned out.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time developing your people first before you destroy their spirits. Better people plan...
