    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team!
    Love my patients,
    love the location; in an area where I can help more

    Cons

    Not much clinical time to educate patients

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in our technicians; give them a fair working price so there would not be so much turnover tech wise.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am fortunate enough to be at a fairly low volume store so that’s a plus-benefits are also pretty good

    Cons

    They keep on adding in more and more and more tasks and checklists and calls (of course while taking all my tech hours away)

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move up in the company and relocate if needed. Competitive salary.

    Cons

    Technician hours fluctuate frequently. At times difficult expectations and script goals to reach.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer great benefits and competitive salary. Focus again more on the patient rather than the competition/numbers.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are good but not good enough for the way they treat employees

    Cons

    Everything--the excess stress and constant belittling is the corporate way of doing things

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

    Pros

    30% employee discount for CVS Brands
    Advanced work technology

    Cons

    High script volume with no help
    Tech hours cut for no reason
    Long shifts with no breaks
    No help from upper management
    Front store employees cut you at the knees
    Low starting pay
    No work life balance - all work/no life

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your stores. These are your employees that suffer throughout the day and all you can say is "cut hours from the schedule". The do more with less motto only works until someone dies.

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

    Pros

    Pay is higher than most other companies, still hiring in some locations, lots to learn, centered on patient care

    Cons

    workload is crazy, way too little tech help, not enough pharmacist overlap, hours are long, no lunch, 500-600 a day alone, not enough training, vacation is so little and no PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Please increase overlap and tech help some or at least close down for a 30 min lunch. That way the techs and pharmacists all go at once, no shortage of help occurs and the pharmacist gets to eat and gets a breather -- this results in fewer mistakes, more relaxed pharmacists and higher performing employees.
