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

    Pros

    Always busy, never bored. Never felt like I wasn’t given enough hours and got lucky with the pharmacists I worked with, so I learned a lot.

    Cons

    It never felt like the company cared about me at all! It’s all about make the customers happy and who cares if you’re understaffed and barely have time to eat, get the job done. The job is so stressful when not given the correct resources and the work environment was never a fun one.

    Pros

    All I can really think of is how you get to meet new people.

    Cons

    Hours aren't great, not much room for advancement, they will work you to the ground, and management is a joke. You really have to fight for your pay or else get paid for nothing.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you like getting flu shots, you get a free flu shot every year

    Cons

    CVS only cares about making script count and vaccine goals. Every year script count and vaccine goals are increased even if you didn’t hit your goals from the previous year. They are cutting tech hours but increasing work loads! Every week, there’s a new phone call that you have to make and customers hate so many phone calls. They want pharmacists to keep hiring technicians but sometimes not even giving 20 hours of tech time a week. They want you to increase the amount of waiters you have but won’t give you enough tech time to get anything done. I’ve never seen so many miserable pharmacists in my life because of the way they are treated.
