    Pros

    Double time pay for holidays, but even than you're sacrificing your time with family

    Cons

    CVS has a terible way of staffing their stores. I've worked here a little over 7 months now and every shift there is only one cashier and one manager. Corporate comes down on management when we have low scores in customer service, stocked shelves, near and clean store etc etc but dosent give us the resources to have the proper staff to meet the needs of business, it's pretty much "just get the job done" type of attitude. The work life balance is terrible, work 6 days a week just to get 36 hrs a week. As a manager you're expected to run the entire operations on a Day to day basis as if is a small mom and pop type of store
