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

    Pros

    24 hour stores, union stores, ability to transfer nationwide

    Cons

    Computer scheduler is a joke, the people making the decisions haven't worked in a pharmacy in decades

    Advice to Management

    Instead of relying on metrics to tell you what a store needs or what improvements to make, Ask Your Employees. We're the ones living it, and we know what works and what doesn't.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule. Decent benefits for vision and eye.

    Hours just got cut from 40 to 27 per week. I have worked for the company for over 6 years and they do this. They want you to be loyal, but don't care if you can support a family.

    Stop cutting hours
