I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Interesting time to work in healthcare; company has lots of potential; movement within the organization is possible if you play your politics right

Cons

The CVS purchase a couple of years ago definitely made life at Caremark less pleasant. The new company doesn't understand how a PBM works or what to do with it. one week record profits are announced, the next week there are no bonuses due to not meeting targets. Bad managers thrive forever; nepotism is alive and well. Pay isn't great.

Advice to Management

Weed out the bad managers and let your best employees thrive.

    Well organized companie with good training programs

    The hours are cut so thin that it make management work very dificult. Since the management has to perform task that would normally fall on associates

    Advice to Management

    You cannot claim being customer driven if you have no people on the floor

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

    Pros

    If apart of a union store, yearly raises do occur.
    Discounts for some merchandise.
    Clear explanations on what your job title means.
    Closer stores allow scheduling gaps to be at a minimum.

    Cons

    Low pay for pharmacy staff.
    Training for pharmacy is out of store mostly.
    Hours are dictated by corporate instead of store needs allowing varying hours.
    All activity from Store/Pharmacy Manager and higher is very secretive.
    Can be fired for not joining the union.
    New POS systems for pharmacy are buggy and are a pain for older customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open about CVS and find a way to allow new hires more opportunities.
