Cashier (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VA – June 6, 2014
Pros: discounts for employees on cvs items
Cons: low hours
As a CVS cashier I learned to handle money, and my first experience in retail and a bit of overnight experience. Assisting customers and learning how to accurately disperse money was quite a responsibility and a great learning experience. The supervisors were great but the site managers were not organized setting me up a schedule and then changing mid – more... week was a nightmare. I did enjoy working with the staff everyone was very friendly. – less
Poor cashier (Former Employee), Cambridge, MA – December 18, 2014
Pros: keeps you moving until you can move.
Cons: they suck up on schedule, pays, rest, hours.
I work for CVS at Cambridge MA. Was new to MA and could not find right job for a while and joined their team. They pay the least they could legally can do. The store is small in compared to other stores. No photos, no pharmacy. Most of the time I am one self in the front and my shift supervisor is busy behind the store and they want me to Greet the – more... customer, walk to the Isle with the customer, operate the register, restock/re-shelve/check merchandise/ front all at the same time. They pretend they do care for their employee but in reality they truly suck up their employee. One ideal fact to prove: the employee handbook/ in training they told the employee could take 2 times 15 min break and one half and hour unpaid break by clocking out. But my manager won't let us take 15 min break. And, I work without taking break for a week but my .5 hr was deducted on each day schedule. Does the .5*8.5 ($4.25) have same value to the company and the hourly employee who work their butt off to make their hands to mouth? They want to show as if they do care but suck up the blood of their employee until the fed up and find another job. I talked to my manager giving me fixed schedule so i could have another job too but he is not willing me to do so either and changing my schedule every week. – less
A typical day at work would consists on interactions with patients all day long, deals with third-party insurance issues. The hardest part of the job is that it can get so busy that sometimes you can get behind with other tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting patients their medication after having difficulties obtaining refills from physicians.
Good technology advancements-very good senior management communications within the organzation
Senior Manager (Former Employee), Northbrook Il – December 18, 2014
Pros: a fair place to work-life balance-company financially successful
Cons: too much red tape to get things done
Over the last several years worked within the Enterprise Data Warehouse space building business intelligent data for downstream business reporting. Gained a very good background of data transformation from Legacy Systems to data stores. Management, for the most part, was fair in evaluating resource abilities but some managers micro-managed resources – more... causing tension and doubt from direct reports. Red tape was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable was collaborating with colleagues to achieve project successes with team members. – less

Cons: one 30 minutes break, excessive work load, no benefits for pt, outdated equipment and systems, poor corporate managers, lack of care for employee work conditions
This company has a tendency to talk about big things when it comes to hiring an individual but does not actually live up to the expectations they set for themselves. The workload is extreme with no balance from those in higher positions attempting to help relieve these kinds of problems. The employees are hard working individuals who often sacrifice – more... a life balance just to help the company but the company gives nothing back. – less
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Pleasantville, NJ – December 17, 2014

I loved working at the pharmacy. I became the inventory specialist so I made sure all medications and supplies were accounted for and organized at all times. I learned how to use their database for everything from entering patient and insurance information to entering and filling prescriptions.

Cons: always rushing you
with minimal staff they expect you to kill yourself for low pay, break down multiple pallets alone and when an injury happens they get mad and argue if it really happened at cvs. training is horrible, got trained by everyone besides the manager and then manager gets mad at you for doing things different or wrong

Each morning I started the photo printers while the opening manager opened the store, I would run tests to check what the printers needed, log these results, make any adjustments. I would then check for any orders not processed and begin them . I would stock the area around the lab, I would offer help to customers as they shopped in the area. I ran – more... the cash register. The hardest part was getting opened quickly but accurately. I learned all about the printing end as I didn't know that before. Management, coworkers and customers were great – less
