Pros

Our customers make all the senior management's unrealistic demands and negativity worth the while. If you truly enjoy being of service to others this will be a very rewarding position.

Cons

If you don't want a personal life and enjoy to work whenever without advanced scheduling, then I highly recommend this company. We get a one day advance of scheduling and if you object to it you get punished by getting your hours cut on the following week's schedule. The harder you work the less chance of advancement with this company. Your pay raise is a whooping 3% regardless of whether you work or not. The photo lab is a big joke you have to juggle 1-hour photo service, cashier, stock, maintain equipment, mix chemicals, assist photo customers and provide 100% excellent customer service all by yourself. Basically, CVS runs a one man front store and expects you to do it all perfectly.

Advice to Management

Greed and work ethics will eventually be the downfall of this company.

    Pros

    CVS Caremark is in a fast-growing sector that will continue to benefit regardless of political party in power in Washington. The combination of a top tier PBM such as Caremark with a leading retail pharmacy like CVS shows that management is thinking about the future and how they can shape that future of healthcare in America. The compensation is good but not great. The compensation, benefits, time off policies will depend very much upon the particular division or group that you are employed in, though I was happy with mine (Caremark legacy group). The integration of CVS and Caremark is ongoing and there is some work to do.

    Cons

    CVS Caremark is in an industry that, although it is in the business of healthcare, many people, including politicians, seem to take certain financial aspects of the company out of context to show "greed". I am confident in saying that CVS Caremark as a company does try to improve people's healthcare and doesn't have company policies in place that would in any way jeopardize health; however, it is such a large company with many employees, and some of those employees may take shortcuts occasionely to reach goals. The compensation is good, not great, and I've heard that the corporate office can be a tough environment.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I was happy with my time at CVS Caremark. One thing that senior management could do is improve communications between groups, especially now that CVS and Caremark are one company.

    Pros

    Good 401k matching and stock purchase plan. Healthcare benefits are around the same price elsewhere. Discount in store is OK. Not a problem to get the hours needed even in hard times. Decent vacation time after being employed for five years.

    Cons

    Don't expect to go anywhere out of the pharmacy. A person hits top and there is not too many places to go up the corporate ladder. Raises are done minimally except for the normal yearly raise. Raises are not done on merrit too much. Sometimes feels like upper management cares more about the customers and if they are happy than if the employees are happy.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel better about working at CVS because the rate of turnover is too great. Employ a better training system rather than throwing someone in the pharmacy and expect them to learn on the spot.
