    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 worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paid well, Vacation time, Health Insurance

    Cons

    Had to request vacation time extremely far in advance and may still be turned down, no breaks for lunch or anything else for that matter, often had uncertified/ under trained staff and still had to meet performance metrics, low budgeted hours for staffing

    Advice to Management

    If you want to meet or emulate the service model of Chic-Fil-A then you must also VALUE the EMPLOYEE and provide properly trained staff and appropriate hours to accomplish it. FOCUS on VALUES of the Health profession and let the pharmacist be a PROFESSIONAL AGAIN.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great teams and employees. The benefits are many.

    Cons

    Not enough help in pharmacy and customers are treated way too much like numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to make 95 cents instead of a dollar to keep teams a LOT more happy. The lack of help in the pharmacy is very apparent.

    Advice to Management

    If you want things done, you can't just keep on understaffing the stores!

    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

    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.
