Kept busy and had a good time.
CASHIER (Former Employee), Olney, ILOctober 21, 2014
Pros: great envirnoment
Cons: short breaks
While working at CVS I mainly worked 430-10p.m. Most nights were busy from 430-6p.m. and again 8-10p.m. I enjoyed working with all my co-workers. I asked lots of questions to make sure I was doing my job correctly. The hardest part of my job was telling customers that they were not able to use someone else's Extra Care Buck coupons.

Roles are not clearly defined
Senior Consultant (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZOctober 21, 2014
Pros: flexibility with schedule
Cons: very stressful environment, terrible work life balance
Managers do not provide clear expectations, nobody wants to do their job because nobody's job roles are clearly defined. Company is too concerned about their public image and decisions reflect that rather than the good of the people who work there.

Cashier/Stock (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 21, 2014
Pros: discount on store items.

Facing, In Stock, and being Clean and Neat is the main Focus on a typical Night.

I have learned Overall Work Experience, Customer Service Experience, Cash Experience, and DSD Receiving Experience.

Good Management.

My Co-Workers Help Keep the Store on Track.

Most Enjoyable part of the Job would have to be Helping Customers.

Great company if they cared a little more about their employees.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee), San Antonio TexasOctober 20, 2014
I was with CVS for about a month. I was on my last week of class training. I got sick over the weekend and missed Monday and Tuesday of class. apperently if we missed any days of school we would get write ups for each day missed. Well I got 2 write ups and I was told that if I had missed another day, I would have gotten terminated. I went to class on – more... Wednesday only because we had our last final for training. I was still sick but I still showed up. I had a doctors note and you could even tell I was really sick. But with the doctors note the absences werent excused. So I was pretty much hanging by a straw at CVS. I had already knew that I wasnt going to go in Thursday because I knew over night I wasnt going to get better. Its a great company to work for and everything. Great benefits. But the only thing is, its not flexible with your life schedule. They put the buisness needs before your life needs. I didnt know I was going to get sick and I couldnt help it. I would have just liked if CVS cared a little bit more about their employees and not the buisness....Hence we are the ones that are helping and taking the calls and answering the customers questions. Another thing I didnt like that much about CVS was security. They were rude. If you lost a badge or needed a temp one, they wouldnt give you one. They would either make you go home and go get it, so you would be late for work or they would make you tell your suporvisor to have them buzz you in and out for the day, which was a hassle. They were also rude and not helpful when you had questions or concerns.
Management was ok. Supervisors are very helpful and answer any questions you have, but when it comes to being sick, they dont really care.
Co-workers are very nice, I had no trouble making new friends and getting along with people there. Some were even very helpful.
Hardest part was probably all the escalated calls. Majority of our callers are senior citizens and it just broke my heart when they would call in and they would be upset with the company or they couldnt get their medicine and there wasnt anything we could do for them right off the bat. I just felt so bad for them because they are older and not very rememberable.
Most enjoyable part of the job, our recognition at work. When we would get customer call backs to say that we helped them and that we were great with them, we would get a "Because I Cared" ribbon from our supirvisor. We would have luncheons with our supivisors and we would get gifts from CVS. Also another enjoyable thing about working for CVS was all the friendly faces. – less

Pharmacy Services Representative (Temp) (Former Employee), Monroeville, PAOctober 20, 2014
Pros: bonuses
Cons: commute to work
i would describe a typical day at work as challenging, busy and producive. I learned how to use time management more proficiently, mutli-task, work harder under pressue, and maintain composure under stress.

My management was Great. They were very understanding and tried to work with everyone at their own pace. My co-workers were awesome; very kind – more... and courteous. – less

Enrollment Coordinator III (Current Employee), Buffalo Grove, ILOctober 20, 2014
Pros: company contributes funds to pay for healthcare costs, potential opportunity for professional growth, organization sincerely cares about putting people on a better path to health, tuition reimbursement
Cons: attendance policy doesn't provide a flexible work/life balance, no sick leave, limited promotional grid, difficulty transferring to different departments, no internship opportunities for employees
Most of the required work is done independently and each day goes by quickly. You're almost always busy and motivated to reach a quota, which I enjoy. Most people put on headphones and listen to music all day while getting in their "zone".
Learned transferrable information about the Specialty Pharmacy industry. There's not very much time for socializing, – more... and one can only really get to know their colleagues whom you sit near. The hardest part of the job is our complex process to make decisions. I enjoy working for a company that selects a truly diverse workforce. – less

Supervisory (Former Employee), College Station, TXOctober 19, 2014
Cons: no paid breaks/meetings
Co-workers are supportive of each other, but required daily tasks crammed in an 8 hour shift takes an above average worker 12 hours to finish. Company's demand of their employees include but not limited to almost no bathroom break, no lunch-break, and not a second wasted because every click of the keyboard and time spent on the phone are recorded and – more... graded and converted to a formula that is equated to PATIENT CARE. – less

Store Manager (Former Employee), Murrells Inlet, SCOctober 19, 2014
Pros: yearly bonus
Cons: lunch breaks, balanced of work and life
Setting daily expectations for customer service. Creating the best shopping experience for all of the customers that would use my store. Delegating projects for the day along, with training the employee's on proper procedures for peforming the tasks at hand.
I learned over the years to have an open door policy for my employee's to feel comfortable in – more... talking to me in regards to any situation. Always to be open to new ideas that was given from feild management during regular visits. Always creating a upbeat and positive work enviroment, respecting and praising my employee's. Balancing the workload and customer service was very hard to make sure all of the daily workload was completed. I enjoyed training my employee's to give them more knowledge that helped the daily operations of the store which would also reflect on customer service. Also training for advancement I was very proud in doing. Giving my employee's the oppurtunity to advance in the company was always something I was very proud in doing. – less

Retail experience of being a cashier
CASHIER (Former Employee), Keyser, WVOctober 18, 2014
Pros: running the cash register and stocking shelves.
Cons: short breaks
I walk into work, say hello to my coworkers and take my belongings to my locker in the back of the store. I get a drink or a snack to eat while I'm working that night and start my shift. Working as a cashier, I loved it. I just didn't care too much about selling alcohol or the cigarettes every couple minutes, that can get on your nerves very quickly. – more... The management was always nice to work with, I got along with everyone I worked with. They love to talk to you and help you out with anything you need. My co-workers were my favorite, they were like family. They were always inviting myself and my manager back to the pharmacy for some pizza. The hardest part of working at CVS is making sure you give the customer's the right amount of money back. I enjoyed running the cash register and stocking shelves. Stocking shelves kept me occupied on my shifts. – less
