Love the people, not so much the unrealistic expectations.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Ventura, CA – September 14, 2018
A typical day begins with at least 12 hours of work to get done and I'm going to have less than 8 hours to do it in. CVS is greatly known for expecting that. Don't forget the store manager breathing down my neck, to get everything done, even when he's told it is unrealistic. No way to get it all done correctly, and really bothers me because I really want to do things right and well. I do learn the numbers breakdowns and all that, but no time to do much more. My particular store is very geared for a large senior demographic and also college crowd, so you need to know how to communicate with and deal with everyone. Not to leave anyone out, I can certainly handle myself with homeless, belligerent, intoxicated, thieves, or just plain rude, out of control people. The part of my job that I do enjoy is the people themselves, Whether it's my coworkers, whom we all enjoy and care about each other like family, or the customers, who I've known for 20 years. The children, I've watched grow up, the families I've seen grow. The tears we've shared, the joys, the laughs.
