Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – September 11, 2015
We started working as soon as we entered the pharmacy. Customers are waiting at the front register and at drive-thru for pharmacy to open and start work. Everyone in the pharmacy worked very hard and non-stop. I liked working with my coworkers. They never took their 15 minutes breaks because they knew no one was their to cover them. Everyone had to do multitask to keep up with the work load. We had work board which we used to assign places and work to individual technician. This helped us manage and organze the pharmacy.
Fun to work with coworkers. Time goes by very quickly.
Hard to keep technicians. They get stressed and burned out easily.
Worked as a Pharmacy Tech for 2 years. Pharmacy was incredibly busy, and we never had enough techs to handle the workload (drive thru!!) Upper management kept cutting hours, manager was uncommunicative. Customers for the most part were nice. Left to work for a competitor - so much better.

Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Peoria, AZ – February 10, 2016
My days usually consist of running around doing pointless busy work and making sure other staff get their pointless busy work done.
For me the best part of my job are my regulars who come in and say hi. The hardest part of my job is that corporate seems to think we need next to nobody to run an entire store. We are always understaffed to a point where I don't always have enough people and you can't even call in sick.

Staff Pharmacist (Current Employee) – Bay City, TX – February 10, 2016
Patient care is no longer the focus of the business rather the company pays more attention to metrics that is not a measurement of quality assurance. Pharmacist makes so much mistake because of too many task as regards to the metrics KPM system the company runs.
No break, RPh works more than 10 hrs w/o break or food still not enough
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Drexel Hill, PA – February 10, 2016
This a excellent place to work, it allows you to interact with customer and use your Pharmacy technician skills. Management is willing to work with you to ensure you reach your training goals. Training is in small groups to ensure that you understand and retain all your learning.

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA 18706 – February 9, 2016
Mandatory overtime is excessive, but if that's what you like, then this is the job for you. Advancement is up to you. Must be a go getter. Too many socialites there, so if you are a hard charger, you WILL pick up the slack.
I repeat --- Mandatory Overtime, although they can't call it that.
Director Enterprise Digital (Former Employee) – Northbrook, IL – February 9, 2016
Medco got bought and kicked all them out in NJ. Being sweared at in meetings is very common and you better have thick skin. They all found a home in CVS and hired each other qualified or not. The work life balance is not there and there is no investment or IT only projects for the business. If you are not on the East Coast you there is little chance to advance.
Up/Stocker-Cashier/Photo Center (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – February 8, 2016
Typically a cashier faces the store and rings up customers. Also, assisting them with questions and answering phone calls. I learned how to handle photo center related tasks and since it was my first retail job ringing customers, store recovery and stocking. I been to a lot of cvs's where management was lousy and treated you like their lesser. My coworkers were freindly and really nice to be around. At cvs you learn to be very kind and respectful. Not much was hard about the job except correctly performing photo tasks and taking passport photos etc. I find simple conversation while ringing up some frequent customers most enjoyable. We call them regulars in the retail business.

Clerk/ Cashier (Former Employee) – Duarte, CA – February 8, 2016
I always learned something new on the job whether it was looking up products in other stores or working faster on the register. The co-workers were very friendly and easy to get along with and at times very helpful.The most enjoyable part of the job were the customers that gave you a thank after you have helped them.
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Needham, MA – February 8, 2016
very busy and generally organized. no time for breaks. management is not very helpful. It is very stressful and I find that management is not good at helping the employees decrease there stress. You are not accurately compensated for job well done
It would be great if you were treated as an employee instead of a dollar sign. A lot of turn over in employees and management. Chaotic workplace as it seems no one knows what is going on from day to day.
