Pros

I enjoy working with the public and like working at CVS. CVS matches money put into and retirement IRA

Cons

I like working AT CVS, not FOR CVS. CVS does match your contributions to an IRA. But, for the most part, part-time employees get few benefits from this company. I was really excited when I saw a posting for scholarships for CVS employees's children - until I looked closer and it was only for full-time employees. We get no paid vacation and our employee discount is not good. I worked for Osco before CVS bought us out and we accrued vacation hours and receive a very good employee discount. CVS is just making more money off of it's employees instead of giving them a break.

Advice to Management

Please treat your part-time employees better - especially the ones who are loyal and have stayed with the company.

    Pros

    Solid financially, good growth, good job security, good benefits, management is never satisfied and constant seeking improvement, very good technology, fun place to work generally.

    Cons

    a lot of work for the hours given and relatively low support to maintain efficiency, but service has not suffered too much and financial stability maintained so the poor situation continues. No real breaks unless mandated by law. State laws should require breaks for the health of the employees and job satifaction and customer safety. Management is never satisfied and always seeking improvement. Needs better technology in more locations. Management is piling on more and more tasks and there is too little time to accomplished them. Many employees are not really qualified to do their respective jobs. Many employees lack communication and basic skills they should have learned in high school, but trainers and management just want to rubber stamp accomplishments and training goals instead of having employee really demonstrate ability to conduct tasks repeatedly. Fun place to work generally, but there is such a thing as too much fun and teams are being overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your teams if they feel overworked. Ask your teams if they feel they are being compensated well enough. Ask your teams if they feel they are trained well enough. Make sure employees actually are qualified and trained well and not just allowed to continue to work in ignorance. Have more trainers who visit stores regularly and observe and train like the pharmacy supervisors. Need to have floater technicians or have trainers who float to help cover technicians who are ill or cover technician vacations like it is done with management and pharmacists. Have trainers or technicians who visit stores weekly to maintain paperwork and other sundry duties so there is consistency for auditing purposes while store technicians can focus on customer care. Don't you want pharmacists to interact with clients more? They can't if you are piling on administrative tasks which take attention away from those situations which can build emotional connections. A pharmacist should have to choose between helping a client and some paperwork. Think about the environment more. Why is CVS wasting so much paper every day? Why does CVS use so much plastic? Why are you heating stores when the stores are already too hot? Why aren't you using more efficient lighting? How about having high speed internet for educational purposes? Customers could access special order items via an internet enabled computer with the CVS website and have it shipped to them or the store. Why not allow high speed wireless internet access for customers and employees for educational purposes? Why not allow internet ordering for outside vendor items with a daily wish list of items to order as needed as they are needed so all available NDCs, current amount in stock with supplier, package sizes, and full descriptions of items, then automatically ordered for the next business day? Allow company email to smartphones and employee email accounts. Allow electronic prescriptions to be automatically converted into a ready to print prescription instead of having to have data entry of the same information and possible allowing errors. Better scanners and higher resolution monitors are needed if all pharmacists are doing is look at a scanned image of a prescription. Allow text messaging of information between clients, employees and management.
