I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

CVS Caremark is an enormous company, and one hand doesn't always know what the other is doing. There are lots of chances for advancement though, if you can find the right area.

Cons

There are two core businesses and leadership primarily only knows the retail side of it. If you work on the PBM side, expect lots of change and worry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people on the PBM side. They know what they are doing, but only if you don't stop downsizing them.

    Pros

    Steady Work - you will get in a full 40 hours or more a week.
    Approachable management

    Cons

    -Production is timing based. As a fork lift driver, you need to be quick in transporting product or you lose production percent. The timing is based off the numbers that they deem "fair". If something happens, say an accident, supervisor stops you, you need to move something out of your way, another driver in the same area you need to get too, the time spend away from the move hurts your percentage. As a result safety becomes an issue and co workers tend not to help each other as they too have to meet production percentage.
    -Low pay - you can only max out at 12.00/hr after two years if you don't change positions...11.50/hr if you don't drive forklift. You start at 10/hr, but that's how much cashiers make at some retail stores! At a distribution center, that wage is a joke.
    -Unspoken policy changes - policies will change and the lack of communication will hide them from you until you violate it of course.
    -All machine accidents qualify as a safety violation regardless of the severity. Even if you simply "bump" the warehouse racking without causing damage or injury, you must report it. When you report it, it goes as a safety violation write-up. If you don't report it, they have cameras and will fire you immediately for not reporting an accident. You only get three write-ups (in an unknown timeframe) until you are terminated.
    -Very biased against forklift operators. If a driver accidently damages even one item in a box, it's a write-up and they send you to the hospital for a drug test. Meanwhile, if a stocker damages one item in a box cutting it open, they simply put it in a damage bin and continue the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have one of the biggest companies in America. Show your employees that you appreciate them. Do some research and increase your distribution wages. 10.00 an hour is a joke especially in a warehouse setting when I can walk down the road and make that as a cashier. Your timing system is completely unfair, and biased when warehouse managers can adjust the time at will. Employ "here's the job.. get it done". Without timing percentages people would breathe easier and relax knowing that every second isn't leading to their eventual firing because they cant make percentage. What is wrong with the method of coming in getting the task at hand and completing it? Essentially that's what they do anyway.. eliminate timing and update your communication skills.
