No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The employee discount saves you a ton of money
It's overall a comfortable work environment
You become familiar with the district manager and other corporate affiliates
Frequently offered overtime

Cons

Well....it's retail
You have to be available ALL of the time
Sometimes have to do way more than required
Standing on feet for long periods of time
dealing with difficult customers
No longer using payroll checks you have to either use direct deposit or use a payroll debit card which consists of hidden fees and usage charges

Advice to Management

Management could make this job a lot more ideal if they recognize the employees more often for their work and offer more for compensation.

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

    Pros

    As a pharmacy technician, I really got to know the regular customers.

    Cons

    It seemed like the pharmacy was either really busy or no one at all was in there and we were twiddling our thumbs. Maybe that was just my location, but it got old after awhile.


  2. "Retail"
