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

    Pros

    Love helping customers save money

    Cons

    Best for someone w/o children or husband

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding and don't write your employees up for an immediate family emergency.....my husband was taken to the emergency room and I'm the one in charge of his care. And he is looking at having to have brain surgery. I just wish the company was more considerate and more family oriented. Don't get me wrong, I love the atmosphere and being able to brighten my customers day while saving them money in the process.

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

    Pros

    All staff members are nice and willing to accommodate each other when needed.

    Cons

    CVS as a company is super tight with it's money and does not give adequate amounts of hours to staff the store. This leads to being understaffed almost daily. The amount of multitasking needed to do this job effectively is not worth the pay. !!!!!!!!!PTO only after 1 year of full time. Holiday Pay is only for full time staff!!!!!!!
