    I worked at CVS Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive experience. My managers were all very nice, supportive, and had reasonable expectations.

    Cons

    The scheduling is inconsistent and it can be annoying to get called in once a week or more to cover someone's shift.

    Advice to Management

    Better relationship between corporate and franchise. Seemed very tense when district managers would come in.

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

    Pros

    30% off CVS Brand employee discount and 20% all other brands. Flexible Scheduling for students.

    Cons

    Not safe when working late hours, always understaffed (they need to hire more cashiers), very stressful during peak hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please, hire more staff members, whether it be cashiers or managers, in order to have a few employees on duty during peak hours so it doesn't get stressful.

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

    Pros

    not much physical labor. we get employee discounts

    Cons

    most of my managers and coworkers are very rude. my managers didnt teach me anything and get mad when i ask for help or dont know how to do something. the work is very tedious. customers are very rude and entitled. the schedule is only on a paper instead of something more convenient like an app

    Advice to Management

    be kind to your employees and teach new people how to do stuff, dont just expect them to know how to do it!!!

    I worked at CVS Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CVS brand discount is 30% and 20% on everything else.

    Cons

    30 minutes for lunch breaks; only one cashier at a time most times; LOW pay

    Advice to Management

    The employees that care will keep leaving because the pay is low and the work load is too much for one cashier. There is no communication of changes until the day of. Raises are pitiful. A lot of the stores need improvements because everything is either old or broken.

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

    Pros

    Pay was okay, the other employees were good.

    Cons

    Management only cares about reviews. They don't care about the employee doing well. Every time I received a bad review I'd get chewed out and ask why it happened. But they never mentioned anything about good reviews.

    Customers are always mean. They don't care that you are only an employee, they just want to get mad because the prices are too high or because we don't have something in stock.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the good employees bring in and not only the negative. Most of the time people only write reviews to say something negative anyways.

    I worked at CVS Health (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is very friendly
    Management is understandable when people call out
    The customers are great!

    Cons

    They lie. They hired me as a pharmacy tech (which I am certified) and told me I would train in the front as a cashier. They kept me in the front (with a lower pay) for over 3 months. I got called in every day I had off because everyone calls out.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being so nice when people call out. Find better workers. People who actually show up. And quit lying in your interviews about pay and “training” and maybe your “good” workers won’t quit on you.

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

    Pros

    Can switch locations and you can beg for a lunch break and there is a restroom and you have customers and they purchase stuff

    Cons

    Schedules are never made on time. Management is rude to you and customers. You are expecting to run a register with 20 people all by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually CARES about people and respecting them, not just putting on a show for when corporate comes around —unless you are just like them.
