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

    Pros

    Great coworkers and mostly friendly customers. Always learning something new. Never really bored. Flexible schedule for the most part. Good opportunity for growth. Multiple locations which is good. Nothing else I really want to add at this time.

    Cons

    Company doesn’t care for employees. Always cutting hours. Stressed environment and never enough time to get things done. Hiring process takes too long. Big employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Add more tech hours. Listen to employee concerns

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

    Pros

    My co-workers and customers make working here enjoyable. I also think it’s great that I was given an opportunity to grow with the company.

    Cons

    There’s not a lot of hours since we changed some things, but I understand that it’s because of the budget cut.

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

    Pros

    The people that worked at this location made the job bearable.

    Cons

    The pay, the long hours, management, drive thru, no ability to move up in the company

    Advice to Management

    Pay raises for CPhT, actually making sure the training gets done for every employee, stop cutting critical company hours and readjust your time off plan. Serious joke.
