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

    Pros

    Good people, good customers, busy atmosphere. Not a lot of clique-yness that you find working with a group of women.

    Cons

    Standing for a continuous 8 hr shift was hard on me. Schedules were not put out until last minute.

    Advice to Management

    I’m not sure how to make it better but the schedules coming out sooner would definitely be a plus!
