NOT a healthy work environment for anyone that works hard but still wants a work/life balance. The company is constantly cutting hours, but asking us to do more with less. Now we are handling UPS packages in addition to the multiple deliveries we dont have room for now.
Recently started paying one of the best hourly rates in retail for hourly staff, but right after, cut more hours! Then introduced streamlined way to put up weekly sales signs, then cut more hours. Don't do us any more favors, please! So, its easy to hire hourly help, but once they get overwhelmed by the workload, they leave. Those that stay would rather get paid less to have more staff again.
Instead of Coaching and Helping achieve goals, expect constant write-ups from District Leaders over trivial things, or missing impossible goals. Managers that were high performers just a couple of years ago are suddenly let go over performance?! I think they are encouraged to get rid of people making higher wages in favor of younger people they can pay less.
For an interview as a pharmacy tech, the pharmacy manager will interview you. Managers are all different so your experience may vary, especially depending on how desperate the pharmacy is for help (big turnover in this job). I only was asked two questions: "Why do you want to work in a pharmacy?" and "what is your availability?"
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at CVS Health? What are the steps along the way?
IF you reply to all emails quickly, and IF there aren't any technical issues, and IF the agent assigned to you has someone else check their email when they're off, and IF you have open availability so you can go to the first available orientation, it will take two weeks for front store, but nearly a month if you are applying for the pharmacy.
The above delays are common, though, so I've had it take up to 6 weeks! Embarrassing, really
What is the vacation policy like at CVS Health? How many vacation days do you get per year?
If you are considered full time, labeled and all via MYHR, you are eligible for vaca days
Ability decipher complex information, simplify, and present in a more understandable manner. Actually the department I worked at need not exist at all. Only if the Customer Service function were more efficient and they would stop shuffling around the job roles, then a lot of these “extra” functions like client support, account management, concierge and benefits verification can be done away with.
CVS Health provides medical coverage through Aetna providing you average 30 hrs/wk, like people have said. They give you several options to choose from, meaning diff deductible amounts/monthly charges.
HOWEVER, CVS seems to determine eligibility for coverage based on the avg hours worked from the previous year. I was hired on as full-time but because CVS is cutting employee hours, at least in the DFW area, I was not able to average 30hrs last year (2018). So I am not eligible for medical coverage for 2019.
I let my boss know this and he makes sure to give me at least 30 hrs/wk. Even though I work full-time, I’m not getting full-time benefits. Which is absolutely asinine. But I’m sure it’s in the employee contract.
CVS preaches a “path to better health” but they can’t even provide coverage for their employees.
But yeah, reiterate, they’ve got insurance.
After giving my blood,sweat and tears literally to this horrible, toxic company for 23 years, I am glad I’m not with Cvs anymore.I was a loyal,dedicated rph that was fired.Due to the overwhelming loads and pressure of volume of rx’s to be completed I admit I did ask my tech to help me in a manner that they management disagreed with and hence it was their opportunity to fire me and so they can pay some grad less $ because my salary was at the high end. I didn’t do anything criminal,but the district mgr brought in loss prevention as well. Then later my dm said “ it’s termination” almost gleefully.They could care less that you did what you did for efficiency’s sake or that you have a livelihood and family to support. You are just a number. I was nearing short of retirement age anyway but now I’m working elsewhere more happy and have a family life. The one good thing I’m thankful to God is I matched my 401k all those years and amassed almost a mil and I took my $ out immediately and rolled it over. Good riddance to that horrible,toxic, ruthless company.
Its poor! I used to be more confident about CVS' future and was quite pleased with being employed with them, bit then I became a shift supervisor and it opened my eyes to how little CVS wants to pay their associates and how much work they expect them to do! Corporate needs to get their heads out u
