Pharmacy Technician, Newington, CT - May 29, 2017
Was previously a pharmacy technician to Target Pharmacy before it was bought out by CVS. CVS's computer systems are generally faster in that their load times are slower. Processing prescriptions, however, is not at all faster. With lots of stops and questions the system in place makes you go through many hoops which adds roughly 10 minutes per prescription over Target's systems. CVS management and CEOs also do not care about personal schedules which include college classes and personal family events and will require you skip these events to attend training sessions (which are basically things you would already know or something that did not need to have a training session). They also do not give out raises as well as Target did and have cut the hours across the board for technicians, part-time pharmacists, and floater pharmacy personnel. CVS Pharmacy often feels like you are working for a company that truly does not know what they are doing but happens to have the money to run the business.
