    Pros

    They work with your schedule.

    Cons

    Everyone thinks they are the manager. No leadership skills. No confidentiality. Theft goes on every single day even with LP in the building and no one gets stopped. The people that have been their for longer slack off and tell others to do their work for them. Crappy work environment. Pharmacy doesn't get along with the front end. I can go on and on!!

    Advice to Management

    Sit down and actually LISTEN to what your employees have to say. Fix your attitude. It sucks!

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

    Pros

    On the job training, company pays for state and national test.

    Cons

    They cut store hours, leaving you with few staff to handle the daily tasks. My coworkers had to start coming in before opening in order to get ahead while they could. They also cut your hours just below 40hrs/week so that you don't qualify for full time benefits. Our district manager also wasn't any help. They (I had two different ones during my time there) would come in, usually with someone else in tow, take up space in our already hectic pharmacy, and do...I honestly have no idea. They also took (she was 'voluntold' to go) one of our staff RPHs and put her in a different store.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your retail staff! Get rid of the ridiculous metric system you have in place that 'scores' the quality of our performance. Stop scoring on how many readyfill RXs you enrolled, how many people signed up for texts, how many flu shots were given. All it does is turn into harassing the customers. Set realistic expectations AND wait times. 15 minutes is obnoxious when it comes to making sure you don't kill your customers.

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

    Pros

    Store Discount, Part-time work as supplemental income always available.

    Cons

    With store hours being long and 7 days a week, it is nearly impossible to have a direct contact with HR, despite terms of hire employees are expected to adhere the schedule posted. Pay is low for Pharm Tec at minimum wage, promised raises do not appear.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward talent.
