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

    Pros

    The discount is decent, would be better if you could use it with sale items like other big chain retailers.

    Cons

    The self- checkout doesn't work- I spend more time fixing those which makes it hard to provide excellent customer service; the slow pos system is also making the customer's experience frustrating; the lack of labor hours makes it a field day for thieves; the lack of labor hours makes the work unnecessarily frustrating; hence, I am looking for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Work in the store for a week and see how inefficient the company's strategies are.

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

    Pros

    The pay is great for pharmacists. Upper management are enthusiastic and really seem to care about you....when trying to recruit new grads

    Cons

    Corporate is constantly cutting tech hours and simultaneously increasing demands from pharmacy staff. The pay is not worth the stress.

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

    Pros

    your co workers and sometimes managers are nice and sometimes helpful... discounts are somewhat decent. Not much other than that.

    Cons

    Not great if you want to grow in your career.
    Old technology and no "budget" for learning new things.
    Everyone one is insanely overworked
    Expect calls at all hours of the day because of the offshore teams
    Expect to learn how to do things the wrong way.. and the old way.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Overworking and stunting personal growth is the reason you have such short contractor turn over

    Pros

    training all new hires to be pharmacy techs.

    Cons

    A lot of work,not enough people,only 2 people in the store at any given time. To
    much micro-management

    Advice to Management

    have at least one more person on the floor to take care of some of some of that micro-.managing.
