Pros

Lots of trainiing to know how to do your job correctly. Ability to run your store and come up with ideas to try out within reason without much red tape.

Cons

Like every other company Payroll is slim for what they require you to do. Stores would run smoother with a little more help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate your employees more, and put a ittle moe staff in your stores. This wil improve service aand bring more traffic into the stores.

    Pros

    employee discount, learning experience for pharmacy responsibilities

    Cons

    managers always assume you're wrong and they're right; workers are lazy, unreliable, unprofessional...manager delegates work to you when THEY are getting paid to do it...how am I responsible for making the work schedule for other techs? they never apologize.....unfair pay!! an employee I was training as a pharm. tech was getting paid more than I was! --- If i had not spoken up or asked questions, this would never have been fixed...it took 2 months to get in contact w/ the district manager (lower management never responded)...the pay adjustment was not retrospective either....on top of that..the computer system was confusing, customers were always complaining

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take responsibility in your lack of management skills, listen to feedback from employees, do not delegate work to others because you're lazy and irresponsible

    Pros

    Compensation, friends, and it's a job in a poor economy. Medical benefits are okay, but be warned that CVS outsources your benefits HR department overseas and they barely understand english.

    Cons

    Note, the S.California market is under different rules that other areas! Store Managers are being fired for having expired milk, must work 3 nights a week, reduced staff hours without reason (cause sales are up), heavy corporate mandates without support, and are now limited to a total of 4 keyed supervisors per normal houred store. Stressful! Job requires 6 days a week and about 10 hours a day without additional compensation... you must also sign a statement that you will be fired if you complain (aka sue) about this... as you should be doing your job within the 45 hours a week they technically require - which is impossible without the hours to staff properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers are important - our goal is to serve them, but at what cost to your employees? Managers & staff should have better support behind them from CVS when a customer is out of line, stealing, lying, or doing fraud in the stores. CVS needs to stop laying down to this abuse and stand up for their staff. People should not be fired for a call to the hotline. Imo - Triple S scores are dumb. Good customer service can only come when you have a well trained and staffed store with employees that feel supported by the company.
