    Interview

    For the hiring fair, they greet you, then ask you for an interview in the back. They ask you pretty simple questions, like what is your past experience and what to do in certain situations.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CVS Health.

    Interview

    Did a phone screen with the recruiter to go over qualifications and then a few days later had an interview with the hiring manager. Received an offer about two days later. The salary offered was well below the market salary for the role. I let the recruiter know I could not accept the offer with the salary level, but I would be willing to negotiate the offer to something that would be more fair for the experience and skills I would bring to the role. The recruiter said there was no room for negotiation and closed out my application immediately after we spoke. As an experienced candidate who has worked for different companies in the past, I have never encountered a situation in which I was completely unable to negotiate the initial offer.

    It seems like CVS recruiters are under the directive to bring in employees under budget and are likely incentivized to do so. The hiring manager seemed pleasant to work with but unfortunately all my communications had to go through the recruiter, who was not able to answer a majority of my questions and could not put me in contact with anyone that could.

    Overall, it seems that CVS is taking advantage of recently unemployed professionals out of work due to COVID-19 and are preying on those willing to be underpaid for their skills. I did not feel accept the offer as my communications with the recruiter and the strikingly uncompetitive salary put me off from the company altogether.
