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

    Pros

    Decent Pay (although every penny is squeezed out of you), flexible schedule if you have a nice partner, there are a few nice customers, paid holidays, sick days paid....

    Cons

    Lack of trained and qualified techs, usually train front store cashiers to save money. Terrible and inadequate metric system. Never enough tech hours. Terrible medical benefits, cvs caremark!

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider hr dept and reevaluate current system. Too many cliques in upper management.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was one, until they started cutting store hours and paying you less for same work.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Mostly pharmacy supervisors that devalue our profession. They trap you into managing as they won't let you step down. Multiple legal requirements not met due to lack of staffing. They make you sign 100s of policies saying you will comply but knowing that it would take the work of 3 people to fulfill all their needs. They have destroyed the human component to pharmacy with all the automation and you spend most of your day essentially marketing for their HMO. This should be illegal.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect "Doctors of Pharmacy" to work for free. Stop insulting the profession with demeaning tasks. Admit when you feel the company policy is wrong.

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

    Pros

    This job included a good salary, benefits, and healthcare. The company is constantly expanding and employees can benefit from stock options. Overall, it is a good job if you are fresh out of school

    Cons

    The company is always under-staffing and cutting hours. There is a high burn out rate due to constant stress. Most pharmacist don't last with the company for longer than 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Always try to take the viewpoint of the pharmacist or the technician. They are constantly over worked. Be clear about what is expected of employees. If customer service is always the first priority, keep that in mind when staffing a pharmacy.

    "CVS opportunities"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    I worked at CVS for 5 years as a Hallmark card specialist. I floated between 4 different locations. Overall I found working for CVS comfortable and found other opportunities within the various locations. Overtime I maintained the cosmetic sections and did other projects to earn additional hours and pay. The part-time benefits are good.

    Cons

    Working at 4 different locations made it apparent that the manager make a huge difference on how the store is run. The good managers kept their employees and moral was good. The opposite occurred with a manager who was lazy or not engaged with his store.
