I have been working at CVS Health part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The people who I work with are great. Friendly and personable, the crew makes your shift go by fast. My co-workers have become my friends.

Cons

After you start off at 8.25 and hour, raises are crap. I make $9 and have been there for 4 years. Also sometimes only 1 person gets stuck ringing up customers for hours on end. It sucks, especially she it gets really busy.

Advice to Management

Better raises = more motivated employees.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time

    Pros

    Overall, not a bad company to work for.
    Corporate level; good, broad-based benefits, excellent employee website (although RX coverage has some surprising gaps). Aggressively encourages preventive care with rewards, uses different methods to get the word out.
    My personal experience wIth managers has been OK to very good, especially in helping to find hours.

    Cons

    Still, Local level is still where the issues live: get no or partial/inconsistent messages about changes and policy usage; part-timers get left out altogether. For ex,: I don't remember seeing anything "organized" about what to do in a crisis (this after Hurricane Sandy and. just around the corner from Sandy Hook).
    Get very little feedback on your performance (sometimes even when customer provided good feedback by name).
    *Must make sure paycheck reflects all hours worked, and in accordance with policy and labor law. Only mgr and spvr can see data for specific dates, ee does not receive hard copy confirmation of time punches. From time to time serious issues have arisen.
    It's unintentional, but due to customer service pressures supervisors can forget to give legally mandated breaks.
    EE discount is nice but Walmart is still usually cheaper.

    Advice to Management

    Given Obamacare, HIPAA concerns, etc, I understand Corporate reluctance to drill down and hold district mgt accountable, but the wellness programs/bonuses are not being leveraged. The same is true of the thank-you program.
    Since this is retail and most store ees are earning poverty level wages, these are missed opportunities on several levels.

    Especially locally: they might not have home internet access but I haven't met anyone without a cell, so leverage this to get messages out.

    When there's a sales competition, the poster says the winning store's employees get a coupon for a one-time 50% discount.. OK. It also says the store manager gets $1000... Suddenly, despite my best intentions, my motivation to play this game has taken a big dip. You might want to rethink how you communicate these prizes.
