    Pros

    There's growth up until a certain level, and they pay very well. The work is interesting. And there's always a lot to learn

    Cons

    They'll try to get the most out of you and now give you what you deserve. DM's love to hire from the outside for the SMIT position and then you end have to train them to be your boss. -

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your over performing employees

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

    Pros

    The pharmacists and staff I worked with were mostly very nice and appreciative of ANY help they got.

    Cons

    CVS DOES NOT care about their employees. Techs are extremely overworked and underpaid. Techs get yelled at and cursed at on a daily basis by customers. Techs are expected to multitask at the speed of light! The pay is absolutely horrible. Talking to some of the Pharmacists, they don't feel appreciated by the company, nor do the store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Every employee at CVS are on the same boat, over worked, underpaid and under appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Decent Insurance
    Easy work, just have to put in the physical labor
    Good discount, 30% off CVS brand. 20% off everything else
    Can wear comfortable clothes
    Many different shifts to work
    Never boring

    Cons

    They pretty much tell you to go above and beyond for the customer, and then get mad when you spend to much time ringing or helping someone. They give you the normal amount of work with as little staff and hours as they can possibly get away with. This is almost every store i hear about. Not a good company to work for. Fairly easy job, not a good company to work for. You will last a while if you don't let the disrespect or stress get to you, because you will deal with it all day every day, by your boss and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Literally just revamp your whole company. Even the customers can tell how poorly the staff is treated. Customers have literally begged me to quit because they see how horrible it is. Treat employees with respect.

    Pros

    Very good people that wants to do good

    Cons

    When you're doing great in one store they send you to other stores to clean up and expect you to make result right away.No support.They don't care about your health

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and always have a positive attitude .This is not a long term career.Their turnover rate is high and training is bad.

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

    Pros

    You meet some really cool hard working people. Good with school schedules. Tuition assistance. There's a cvs almost everywhere so you can always pick up hours at another store.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. Unrealistic expectations. Always hiding the truth from corporate. No hours. No security. Rules never enforced. Managers only handle things when their backs are against the walls. No clear direction.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example. I understand you're just delegating what corporate "higher ups" are telling you to do..HOWEVER be realistic with yourself and us. Because most of you can't even get the work done. I think there needs to be more education requirements to become management. Just because you pack out totes super fast doesn't mean you know how to run a store..give fast feedback.. etc!
