    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medco Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting salary was $13/hour. Many opportunities for advancement. Ability to work from home. Supervisors were approachable. Upper management was accessible and cared about associates.

    Cons

    Long interview process, multiple interviews over several days. Lack of consistency and nowhere to find answers to some questions. Some stress over sending the wrong medication to customers, this is a big deal. Although the starting pay was high, after first review at the end of the year, we only received a .20¢ pay raise for the next year.The training ended at 5pm so we got caught in rush hour on the way home.

    Advice to Management

    Shorten the interview process and create an employee development plan.
