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.

Daily tasks cashiering, directing customers to product, doing returns. Don't learn much. Pretty cut in dry the same daily routine. Enjoyable part of the job would be interacting with coworkers and customers.

working for CVS was no different then actually visiting a cvs. i was a cashier, checking people out and making sure all the prices matched to the actual labels placed locations. after when the store was closed, i did returns, returns were items customers didnt want and had to be re stocked.

CVS is driven to be the best healthcare organization in the world. The workplace is professional and efficient. Most workgroups are smaller manageable teams that work cross functionally to complete tasks.

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Leesport, PA – January 16, 2017
At the CVS I work at we get no 15min or lunch break, so you better hope it's not busy. We get yelled at for things that are not in our control, like insurance not covering their medication. We get a score sheet called "Got heart"... No matter how good you do on it, you'll get nothing out of it, trust me I know.
Cashier/Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – January 16, 2017
Great job for students in school, easy to pick up the everyday tasks needed, clean and calm atmosphere, when there is a slow time it is easy to find things that need to be done, such as stocking or straightening.
Great job for those who get bored easily and who enjoy printing photograph negatives
Enjoyed working for CVS health. Management was great when training me for my Position as assistant manager. I did not have a hard job at all I loved working with my co- workers and management team. Loved the customers without them I would not have a job but I love working with the public. I was on floor a lot ordering, stocking merchandise so customer service was very important.
Pharmacy technician (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – January 16, 2017
assist members to a better health with their meds. A typical day is assisting members with their medication and ordering Medications as needed for them via pharmacy and mail order. I love helping others and really enjoy what i do.
I have applied 3 different times for a Pharmacy Tech position in a period of 1 yr. Every time I apply I have to take about an hour to do an assessment and all. After I apply I call to verify they got the application and I am always told they are not looking for anyone. Apparently the store manager has no idea why the website says there is an available position but there is none. Don't waste your time applying like I have.
The schedule varies each week. There is no set schedule each week. It is a fast-paced work environment and there is a lot of customer interaction. When training, it seems like there is a lot to learn, however, the pharmacists will work with you to ensure that you are properly trained before letting you do something you're not comfortable with. If you are looking to work part time, you will be over worked and under paid. The full time employees are the main priority here so they get to pick and choose their schedule and you will have to be able to work around it. The managers are very nice and you will quickly form a love/hate friendship with the pharmacists as well as your coworkers. The hardest part of the job is training. It is very difficult to try to learn everything because the company is constantly changing and expanding. However, it can be rewarding if you enjoy forming relationships with patients.
