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

    Pros

    Pay is a lot better than it used to be. It's mentally stimulating and there's always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Corporate constantly adds more and more pointless tasks for us to do every day. Hours always getting cut, leading to everyone having way too much to do and not enough time to do it. At a store level, most of it is fine. But when corporate intervenes solely to put money in their own pockets at the price of your insanity, it's infuriating.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to what the employees want to change. We all feel like no one is hearing us when we try to address issues.
