Stocker (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 28, 2014
A typical day at work is me stocking the shelves once per week. I am more of a helper. (would really love a stocking job - permanent) I can move fast, lift 60+lbs, bend and reach - no problem. My eyes and brain move constantly.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Falls Church, VA – February 12, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job was my customers and dealing with multiple cultures. I got an opportunity to be immersed in Spanish and learned how crucial it is for the customers to feel inclusion.
Clinical Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – February 12, 2016
They will tell you that accuracy is more important than speed but "performance" seems to be measured in cases per hour. Don't expect real feedback on performance. The feedback you do receive is for really important things like punctuation. Follow the instruction to "dig deep" for information in order to decide a case and you won't last. Apparently, it is better to ignore the requesting physician's forty pages of office notes and fax a questionnaire to his office. Then you will appear to work faster.
wharehouse worker (Current Employee) – Bessemer, AL – February 11, 2016
being a senior employment means they can threaten you with your job and talk to you anyway they wont too. And when you talk to management about the problem they don't want to hear it or they don't care one of the too. And when it come to your rise its a 20 cents if your lucky, and then they act like they just gave that to you.But when they get there nice bonus off the work you did. The thing is corporate cant figure why we have a high turn over rate maybe they need to ask senior employees what the problem is and not management there ready too fire you because that makes them look bad.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Saratoga Springs, NY – February 11, 2016
A typical day starts with a quick meeting and a store walk with the overnight supervisor to review what was accomplished during their shift. During this period I would make notes of any opportunities on the sales floor and the back room. I would then visit the pharmacy just to say hello to the team and review their coverage for the day.
I would then spend about 45 minutes to an hour in the office processing the deposit for the previous day's sales,reviewing sales reports and exception reports, (making notes of issues that needed to be addressed) checking email,reviewing payroll reports, and workload management tasks assigned by the company.
Depending on the day of the week there are replenishment reports that are delegated to team members which I review when they are completed. We had deliveries constantly during the course of the day. These deliveries have to be checked in and merchandised to the sales floor or placed in the back room.
I spend a lot of time walking the sales floor greeting customers, trying to help them find what they are looking for. There are times when I have to ring on a register which gives me the opportunity to interact more with the customers.
I try to have quick meetings during shift changes to communicate where we are in sales,our goal,customers service scores, and the tasks to be completed for the rest of the day.
I also look at upcoming resets and merchandise relocation. Because the store was small in size but the highest volume in the district I had to be always thinking on my feet.
Overall I would say that the employees weremore... dedicated and worked very hard for me.There were those who had issues with attendance but came in line after a few conversations.
The hardest part of my job was to get people hired.
The most enjoyable part of my job was merchandising, and driving sales. I loved it when I could meet with may assistant and supervisors and tell that that we are beating the sales budget and our customer service scores are above target.less
You get meet different people. You getgood discount on merchandise.
Long work hours. Hard to hire people in that area.
I worked for CVS Pharmacy for 11 years. During that time I had 7 different store managers and 3 different lead Pharmacists. The turn over for CVS is very high both in management and in lower levels of enjoyment. This is probably why you are constantly being assigned "work modules" to complete, sometimes without compensation.
The scheduling in the pharmacy is based on a "on demand" system that predicts what the business volume will be and schedule employees accordingly. Therefor, you WILL NEVER have a regular schedule. The management is not interesting in working with their employees in creating a regular schedule to allow their employees some predictability in their schedule and, thus, in their lives.
When I tried to gain a promotion management became more critical of factors that I could not control and ultimately held me responsible for these factors and terminated my employment. If I had been a snarky a** hole I would have had more success in gaining a higher level of pay and responsibly from this company. Being a caring, kind, and dedicated employee means nothing to these people.
routine in workflow, ability to develop relationships with customers
no regular schedule, no support from management, values $ more than values
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.
Cashier (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – February 10, 2016
What I like about working at CVS Health on canal is very interesting you get to meet new people form around the world I always have a great time with my coworkers as well we get along great The hardest part of the job is trying to please every customer that walks through the door because we might not have a specific item they're looking for
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.
