    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learning great customer service . The training stores are set up perfect to show you how to be more productive at meeting the customers expectations.

    Cons

    PIC not enforcing Rotation protocol to allow every full time technician the opportunity to be properly trained at Drop Off in order to strengthen the technician skills to better serve the Customer with excellence above and beyond the customers expectations ...

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if management encouraged team work and allowed each technician to work all four stations daily to increase their knowledge as stated in the new employee classes when hired five years ago...

    I worked at CVS Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    learn a lot, coworkers were nice

    Cons

    hours are not stable, very stressful work environment, many customers were extremely rude, understaffed

    Advice to Management

    this isn't directed at management but rather corporate...stopping cutting the allotted hours for the pharmacy. this causes us to be understaffed and the full time employees overworked while the part time employees get no hours. this is why people do not like to stay. this also is the reason why bad reviews happen. We can not give patients enough attention because there are a million other things going on.

    Benefits for full time employees ... flexibility with schedule... my manager is the only reason I stayed as long as I did

    Better pay for technicians.. I worked there for over 3yrs.. technicians constantly leave because of pay... give incentives
