CVS Pharmacy
Sales Associate / Photo Technician (Former Employee), Kings Park, NYJuly 21, 2014
Pros: benefits, flexibility
Cons: short breaks
While working at CVS, I learned the true meaning of customer service. My daily goals were to provide the best service to each individual customer and attend to their needs. A typical day at work included maintaining the front end of the store, processing all payments, including cash, debit, credit, money gram, and EBT, locating products for customers, – more... unloading inventory, stocking items, and being a photo technician.

My management were very flexible at times. My co-workers all strived for providing the best service for our customers.

The hardest part of working at CVS was dealing with sometimes stressful situations. Being a photo technician, our busiest time of year for photo processing is Christmas time. During that time our photo machine kept breaking and photo orders kept piling up. It was hard disappointing customers but at the same time being honest about when they will receive their photo order.

The most enjoyable part of working at CVS was knowing that I provided each customer with an attentive attitude and strived to fulfill their needs. – less

Cvs does not care about their employees
Pharmacist (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJuly 21, 2014
Cons: little training, poor management, meager pay, no support from company- focus is not on healthcare but solely making money by any means possible
Management is horrible and expects high numbers for customer service while cutting hours and providing little training to their employees. Focus is not on dispensing medications correctly or health of customers but making customers happy, which involves filling C2 scripts that you may not feel comfortable with. Management will support customers who – more... demand their oxycodone rather than the pharmacist's license. – less

Was a good job, but more stress than a combat environment
Field Service Technician (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXJuly 21, 2014
Pros: worked from home, and had a company vehicle
Cons: being on call 24/7, never being able to have a life outside of work
during my workday, I would typically drive 250-300 miles running service calls. covering all of South Texas. the hardest part of the job was that I could never stay caught up, and management was always demanding more than I could give. My customers were great, I had been taking care of their stores for the past 14 years, so they were more than customers, – more... more like an extended family. My co-workers were great. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I went on an emergency call for a critical system outage and the customer immediately knew everything was going to be alright! If it weren't for the hostile environment that my management created, I would never have left. – less

Productive and fun place to work
Lead Technician (Former Employee), Duncanville, TXJuly 20, 2014
Pros: my boss loved coffee so we had our cup and talked about what we needed to do for that day.
Cons: when other technicians would say how small our pharmacy was, yet we were best in customer service.
This store started with Eckards then we were bought out by CVS and my store had our change over in 2005. My customers were my part of my family. The are still some that I still keep in touch with. My co-workers were great we all worked hard together as a team. My most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I put a smile on our customers and made – more... sure that if they needed anything they were to call us and we would help. This was a place that I loved going to work because everyday was a adventure. – less

CVS Pharamcy
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Middle River, MDJuly 20, 2014
My main duties included ringing the register, answering phone call inquires, cleaning the store, putting up planograms, stocking the store, doing price changes, and of course giving all the customers great customer service. One thing I did enjoy here is the management trusted you enough to do things on your own, you had some trust to do things the right – more... way. A con from this job was lack of hours. – less

Regular retail job
Store Manager Trainee (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCJuly 19, 2014
Pros: great community image
Cons: not enough staff in high volume stores, management work as cashier long hours at least 4 hours at times.
This company would be great, but there is a disconnect between the District Management and the store management. They are open 24 hours with no contingency plans for adverse weather conditions. I was totally mislead by joining this organization as a store manager trainee. They didn't have enough training hours to get me trained which led to a slower – more... transition to a store manager position. Five months and still had not been trained on payroll. Need a more educated store management force. Employees really deserve to at least have a break after working at least four hours, not seven. – less

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee), Mount Prospect, ILJuly 18, 2014
Pros: discount at cvs retail stores, friendly and hardworking staff, i was quickly able to learn the computer system that i had never seen before
Cons: no benefits, non-communicative management
Took prescription orders to be delivered by mail and helped patients better understand their medication along with insurance. I learned different specialty drugs and different types of insurance and insurance plans. Management was moderate; they were friendly, however, laying people off without notice (until after their shift). All of my coworkers were – more... knowledgeable and very helpful. Great teamwork! The hardest part of the job was trying to accomplish making a sick person happy and satisfied, however it was manageable and I was able to perform my job accurately and efficiently. The most enjoyable part of my job was also the hardest part because the results of making a sick person feel better was my job and it was very rewarding. – less
