One of the worst jobs ever.
Pros: The nice customers
Cons: Everything else. Literally, everything else.
I've never worked for such a hypocritical company. "Health is Everything"?! Yeah right. NUMBERS are everything, MONEY is everything. And patient care is only a priority if you get to it. Technicians are stretched out super thin, while hours continue to be cut. Upper management expects to do more with less. It's the corporate machine at the worst I've ever seen it! I was even assaulted by a customer, and my manager said and I quote "What do you expect me to do about it? They're a customer". Unacceptable. Technician to pharmacist ratios are not followed at all, sometimes even reaching 6,7 to one (If you're lucky, most busy stores are expected to run with just 3 techs on peak. are you kidding me?!) But that is easily overlooked because guess who is the president of the state board of pharmacy? A CVS pharmacist!
My health itself has been compromised because of my employment here. My doctor has linked my chronic sickness, and now high blood pressure, directly to the stress i experience here. I was expected to come into work sick, with a doctors note, and then chastised for not moving fast enough.
I can promise, when i leave this company, they will never see another dime of my money again.
Oh, and want to know how we got "record profit" after stopping cigarettes?
You guessed it, Cut the hours, pay the employees less, and never be satisfied with what they do.
