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

    Pros

    The people are excellent to work with. It is a very fast paced work environment when you are training in the pharmacy, however the front of the store is usually slower in my experience.

    Cons

    Like every retail employer your hours will vary. You also do not earn vacation until after 1 year of employment.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and they have benefits for part time people.

    Cons

    It can be very stressful. Need to do more things for employees like bring donuts or something simple like that.

    Advice to Management

    Get good managers who will help out.

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

    Pros

    The early hours are great. You can start at 5:30 am and be home before 3 pm. The majority of the people are great to work with and there is a multi-ethnic environment to learn from. You get a lot of vacation and floating holiday time your first year but good luck trying to schedule it.

    Cons

    The worst part is the low pay involved for the type of work. 80% of the workforce has to be certified within 6 months or you will lose your job. Since most of the jobs are in the $9 to $13 range, you wonder what is the incentive to past the test to get certified? And there is a high turnover rate (in my department no one has been there more than 4 years) and there is low morale because of the pay. There is a lack of company pride, loyalty, pride in your work, disregard for safety on management's part, the inability to advance because certain ethnic groups in management are only looking out for each other.

    Advice to Management

    In this current age of low paying dead-end jobs, do some research and find out how much money you are wasting in training workers because of a high turnover rate vs just paying a living wage to current employees.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, working environment is not too tense

    Cons

    Under staffing is a huge problem in most stores and I realized that it basically depends on how strong/fair is your store manager and/or pharmacy manager. Some managers dont even care if you take your break or not as long as you make their face looks well in front of their managers

    Advice to Management

    Need to appoint right managers to stores and pharmacies and care a little for employees who are not on managements because at the end employees are real assets

    Pros

    Co workers become like family, great eye insurance, employee discount isn't bad, and that's it. Not much else to say.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough hours for store to function, company has lost sight of what truly matters. They are too concerned about money.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time

    Pros

    Salaries are high. Access to varied benefits. Stock options. Tries to promote a team environment.

    Cons

    No breaks. Long shifts. Metric centric environment. Tons of corporate red tape. Health insurance is high deductible and omits special needs care.

    Advice to Management

    Stop utilizing a one size fits all mantra. Ther3 is more to a business than metrics.
