    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Great Health Insurance. Hard working management team. Small districts. Allows for advancement within the company and allows you to grow through consistent training throughout your employment.

    Cons

    Part of the checkout process is a list of questions that never seem to end. Some customers are in a rush and it just seems to annoy them. “Do you have your CVS extracare card? Did you find everything you were looking for? Would you like to try such product for just $xx? Would you like to provide an email address to get a 25% off coupon?

    Advice to Management

    “A bad manager can take a good team and ruin it causing the best employees to leave and the few left to lose all motivation.” Never ask your employee to do something you wouldn’t do.

    Pros

    Travel around a lot, so I can transfer to any store

    Management can be hard to deal with, expectations are set really high for a min wage job. Always under staffed

    Pros

    Great customers. Friendly staff. Pay is good for customer service.

    Cons

    Too much work with too little employees! 😳

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to cut corners and give employees more hours to complete what needs to be done. Could not give Larry Merlo a rating because I have never seen him a day in my many years of employment.

    Pros

    Employee discounts. With hard work you can be promoted. Depending on the location you can interact with a diverse group of customers

    Cons

    No room for career growth after becoming a store manager. Overworked..shift supervisors need to be paid much more and will attract more employees

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good
    Enjoy working with the people I work with

    Cons

    Lack of item management. Too much unnecessary items coming in every week that becomes over stocked and exceeds the back room storage capacity.

    Stopped selling cigarettes but sacrificed employee hours.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to employees who have worked in the company for a long time

    Pros

    Offer a lot of training and opportunity to move up. Great environment and opportunity to better yourself. If you love people you will like this job.

    Cons

    CVS does not allow enough people to work on a given shift. Sometimes upper management doesn’t have experience in what the people below them do.
