    Great manager, fun place to work

    Negative Outlook

    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 part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Worked part time but there are lots of hours available to do full time hours
    Great co workers
    Management is understanding-Tool a month off to study abroad

    Cons

    Pay could be better
    Lack of staff so can be overwhelming


  5. "Very disorganized and no help The actual job is nothing like the pre hire informative."

    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good pay, relaxed environment (at my store). All in all I was thankful for the job at the time, but would prefer to not go back.

    Cons

    Boring work (for my personality), hours limited by corporate to prevent benefits, corporate standards and regulations hard on managers/supervisors, which could make it hard for us under them.

    Advice to Management

    Work to support, reward, and encourage the employees more.

    Pros

    regular friendly customers and nice manager

    Cons

    No holidays off
    Various work schedules

    Hardly any sick days

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees than your greed and maybe workplace morale would be given a boost.

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

    Pros

    I had great coworkers. You get some decent discounts. The pay in 2015 for clerk/cashier finally went to $9 so there’s that.

    Cons

    Horrible customers, inflexible due to low number of employees, corporate is awful and clueless who uses intimidation tactics to scare stores into meeting impossible standards

    Advice to Management

    Hey, uh... let your store managers hire more employees. Stop expecting them to somehow cover for everyone. Especially because you won’t allow overtime. Stop letting customers walk all over you—it ends up costing you a ton of money and valuable employees.
