Overall nice place to work

Department Manager (Former Employee)
Walnut Creek, CA

ProsGood location, Good leadership, nice work life balance, employees were dedicated and cared about the company and their personal contribution. Would have stayed longer if company did not get taken over by CVS

ConsWas not the most advanced in technology and systems. Investments in supply chain and inventory management were paying off - and move toward centralizing inventory assortment decisions were paying off - however, CVS takeover changed the direction.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Longs Drug full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Longs was a family company, with close ties to the community, an extensive amount of goods & services, and treated both customers and employees… Cons: Once they were bought out by CVS it was all over. I left the company because CVS was essentially pushing people out. At Longs, I… Advice to Senior Management: CVS uses their sheer numbers to rely on continued business. Want to make your customers actually happy to be shopping there?
