Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Dover, DE – May 30, 2017
Over worked, underpaid, and understaff is what you will learn at CVS. And if your part time you get no benefits, no paid time off, no medical, dental, vision. you get a petty sum of 30 cents a year ( if your lucky) as a pay raise. if you want to learn what favoritism is, working at CVS the place to learn it, been there for 3 long years still get treated like a piece of trash. Rite-Aid, Walgreens, Wal-Mart all pay higher salaries then CVS. You would have a better career digging in dumpsters finding soda cans, and selling the cans to a recycling center for 5 cents each, than working here.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Solon, OH – May 29, 2017
When I interviewed for my position I was told all these wonderful things about benefits and bonuses and potential for advancement. Upon taking the position I quickly learned that literally everything said was untrue. Pay was often late or missing, a very hostile environment. It was honestly deeply upsetting,
Cashier/Clerk (Current Employee) – Carmel, IN – May 29, 2017
You learn a lot from this job on how to take advantage of coupons. Costumers are typically friendly and are loyal to the location.
Management is dependent upon location and the people themselves. I am fortunate enough to have great management.
A lot of things, you do not learn until you encounter it with a customer. Your quality of life improves if you experiment with the cash register (such as figuring out at what point in the transaction can the cash register no longer accept a loyalty card etc.)
Sr. Customer Service (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 29, 2017
Overall, I'm okay with working for this company, they allow me to work 12 hrs a day as I choose to which make me grow in the department of training an building myself . which something I pron myself on growth within the company. They see an drive advancement when is ask by the employee.
allow to work 12 hrs each day, unlimited overtime during peak season
I really enjoyed this job. It was a really fast pace job, because it was always busy. Employees had to work close to each other because it was a very small work place. Management had its ups and down, but it is a corporate company so that is expected. Sometimes it did get overwhelming and stressful but overall I did enjoy this job.
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 29, 2017
The company is great!! Stay away from penn center east building six location. Very high schoolish! The younger crowd can be a bit immature. If you are offered this location. Do not!! I mean do not take this location!!
Working here for me was just another job. The best part about the whole experience was that I was able to work with a boss who was truly enjoyable and a fun person to be around. As for the job overall I didn't see much opportunity for growth but at least I got a little management experience from it.
SHIFT SUPERVISOR (Current Employee) – Florida – May 29, 2017
Overworked and understaffed. CVS Pharmacy expects workers to do everything with limited help while expecting great customer service. I have seen petty theft on a scale of detergent to cosmetics and arm robbers. I have seen thieves take more than what I make in one scoop. New hires barely get proper training and majority of them quit within weeks of start date. Pharmacy is understaffed and the shift has to take on the complaint list pile. I can go on for Days about how terrible it is to work for CVS pharmacy.
Motivates you to want to get out and get more.
As a shift you can't take a break in piece, they offer break waivers because you won't be bale to break.
Terrible Place Always Short Staffed and Terrible Compensation
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 28, 2017
a typical day at work at cvs is terrible, it is always short staffed, the compensation is terrible for the work one is doing. Company will not stand up for you and will terminate you for the most irrelevant things. If you're nationally certified, dont work here.
terrible compensation, strict, treats employees like trash
Alright company if you plan on moving in a few years.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Dayton, OH – May 28, 2017
CVS is a typical company in that they expect you to work over your agreed upon hours, Managers are paid for 45 hours but you will work at least 50 and more likely 60 hours a week. It's not bad except when they cut your budget to the point where you are working at least two days a week by yourself for at least 4-5 hrs. The pay is fine for beginners Managers but once you're there or a few years you will discover that it just isn't worth the 1% raise they give you. They'll tell you how important a work/life balance is as long as your life is also work, forget about weekends off, they just changed the requirements for managers, you HAVE to work 2 nights a week and 4 weekend shifts a month, yes that means you have to work the whole weekend at least twice or 1 day on every weekend. And forget taking a holiday off, they moved 9 hrs in payroll into the holiday field but in reality you still will work at least 5 days that week.
good pay for beginner managers, will teach you how to be great at time management
