Large Company, Great Experience

Featured review

CVS Health selected this as a representative review
Great opportunities to learn more and scale up your skills if desired. Management values work/life balance and is helpful if you reach out with questions. Remote and work from home flexible jobs as well is a plus.

Skeleton crew staffing

The budgets CVS gives out for payroll makes it near impossible to keep up with work flow and service customers in the way they say you should be "laser focused on the customer"

Not bad

It was easy work and not a bad environment. If you are looking for a short-term job to pay your college tuition you should work here. Very flexible schedule.

Horrible Work Culture

Management treats you absolutely terribly. Tons of workload and always short staffed. Always cutting hours and CANT hire new people because the lack of hours. Is mentally and emotionally draining.

Ok job

Job was ok, customers can get rude - scheduling was bad because you’d have to be on the register and also stocking totes from the truck. Pay was decent for a pharmacy

Lack of staff

Always short staffed. No chairs in the pharmacy so you stand the entire shift. You don’t always get a lunch break. You have to work between counting pills and drive through and the register

Love my job

I’ve worked for CVS Pharmacy for years, I love this company, tons of room to grow. They are flexible with work / life balance and care for their employees.

Rewarding but stressful

With a couple exceptions, my coworkers are wonderful. Helping patients can be very rewarding. My pay and other benefits are decent for the area. There is a lot to learn on-the-job, but I do well in fast-paced environments. For me personally, however, the cons outweigh the benefits. Middle management is completely useless. Good luck getting answers from anyone higher than the store and pharmacy managers. They only reach out to ask how many Carepass subscriptions you sell and vaccines you give. Metrics and money-making are the most important values to the company. They cut hours and want employees to do three-times the work which ultimately makes it unsafe. If you want to upgrade your job title and take on more responsibility, the process is like applying all over again, including the wait time. There is a reason there are mass-walkouts right now across the country. I would have already quit if not for the pay and location in relation to where I live.


Coworkers, pay and benefits, breaks required by law


Rude customers, middle management, metrics, standing all day

Not worth it everything about this company is bad. The amount of dumb people you deal with and labor isn’t worth it. Ever since I quit I’ve felt a huge relief and I’m not stressed or tired and overall I’m happier

They will promise you everything and give you nothing. Guaranteed full time hours then got lied to , was taken off the schedule most weeks only work 1 day , sometimes no days at all.

Horrible place to work for

Horrible place to work for. the company does not care about employees and patients at all. They all care about making while making employees work in a extremely harsh environment.

Lots of work to keep in mind of 8hrs. Must be hard worker and don't get mixed with politics. I wish management would focus on training associates and not care.

Learned a lot but not totally secure

Pretty good overall but since it’s a large company you are disposable- personally was laid off due to Covid-19. Could make for a good career if you worked there during better times

Offer Accepted

Waiting to start. Look forward. So far the interview process has been excellent. Everyone has been very supportive and I look forward to growing with this company in retiring with this company.

Bad management

No work life balance. Corporate don’t care about you. If you work with a bad management you have to work a lot more than your job. This is only for upper management like store manager positions

Good for College Students

It was a pretty good job for a college student. Decent pay and somewhat flexible with your work schedule. It is a normal retail job, so nothing glamorous.

It pays the bills

The job is okay. It’s pretty chill and working from home is a nice perk. We don’t take too many incoming calls but it depends on what team you are working. This is the type of job you have until you can figure out your next step. This is nothing that I could see myself in long term. CVS also has good benefits, so that’s a plus. They provide you will all of your work equipment so as long as you have an area in your home to do the work, they will allow you to stay working from home.

The pay is alright starting at 15$ an hour, although they expect you to stock and ring up customers at the same time. Co workers are unbearable. The pharmacy people are pretty cool though

Prepare to be overworked by the most obnoxious management you've ever had. Be happy with your two cent raise for the year. Why are you reading this instead of selling more Carepasses?


They're desperate so they probably won't fire you


This place is a joke.

Great, easy work

As a cashier, the job was relatively easy and my schedule was flexible. Managers were able to listen to employees whenever needed and took each concern seriously. Had a great experience.
