    customers are super rude, the new person always gets the worst hours and they pharmacy manager rather have 6 part time tech instead of 3 full time techs, there is no room for advancement. They will never race your pay.

    Flexible schedules and the ability to help others.

    Pros

    The store was close to home so it helped with the cost of travel.

    Cons

    Not enough hours were offered and usually had to work weekends. In addition, it did not provide much access to growth.

    Advice to Management

    More flexible work schedule should be offered or perhaps a rotation schedule.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits (401k and insurance ).
    Would have said the pay but you end up working extra hours that your hourly rate goes down. Extra hours are usually 10 hours a week. At the beginning you may think that you won't work extra but due to their metrics you slowly end up working for free.

    Cons

    Pressure of the Metrics ( It is normal for a company to have a few metrics but this company has like 100 metrics and you are expected to know each and every single one).
    Amount of work
    Constant cutting of your tech hours. I was at a store that did anywhere from 1400 to 1800 scripts sold in a week and I would only get 120 tech hours. Didn't have a staff pharmacist because they pulled my pharmacist to fill in at a store that was a higher volume. Left with floater pharmacist for 4 months. So every day I would come in to red pages. Would constantly call my supervisor and he never did anything to help the problem. I know of a pharmacist that would bring her husband who was a pharmacist to work for free. He worked for CVS part time so that is how he could help her out. So now you have the whole family working for free for this company. While the head of the company reaps the rewards.
    Supervisor may cut your tech hours to give to another store that is the store that regionals visit more often.
    CVS wants to degrade our profession and little by little they want to make the pharmacist look less than a professional.
    Ticking time bomb..... Constant worry when going into work thinking that due to amount of work (phone ringing, technicians interrupting you, having to go to the drive thru or register) you are going to make a mistake and harm someone.
    I wish there was a law that would take care of the pharmacist more. We need an association that can take care of our profession. But there won't because this is a big company with a lot of money.
    Crazy number of flu shots ( a really slow store that does only 70 prescriptions a day is required to do 400 plus flu shots). And if you don't make the quota, you will have the supervisor calling you and asking you what you are going to do about it. I have spent hours of my free time going to doctor's office to offer flu shots. Never got paid for that time.
    Once a month on my day off I would have to go to a meeting from 8 am until 3 p.m. So not only am I working extra hours and coming in the store on days off I also would loose my only day off to go to a meeting. Only to discuss retarded metrics.
    They have come up with a way to take away the pharmacist bonus. Only get a bonus if the front store has good numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop coming up with so many stupid metrics. Do guys just sit up there and think of metrics just to think of them. Give more tech hours. Respect the pharmacist more.
