Cashier (Former Employee), Woodbridge, VA – June 6, 2014
Pros: discounts for employees on cvs items
Cons: low hours
As a CVS cashier I learned to handle money, and my first experience in retail and a bit of overnight experience. Assisting customers and learning how to accurately disperse money was quite a responsibility and a great learning experience. The supervisors were great but the site managers were not organized setting me up a schedule and then changing mid – more... week was a nightmare. I did enjoy working with the staff everyone was very friendly. – less
Customer Service (Former Employee), Edina, MN – September 20, 2014
Pros: fun, loving, professional enviroment
CVS is a fun place to work, you are always busy. I was only a PT employee, but still felt like part of the team!!
You were never short on things to do at work, I would cashier, stock, clean, work with photo's and answer phones.
I really enjoyed working for CVS, I had the opportunity to work some really great people. I would definitely go back to work – more... for CVS and recommend anyone to apply for a position with the company! – less
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Moody, AL – September 20, 2014
In the pharmacy you're busy from the time you get to work in the morning until you leave. It use to be a pretty fun place to work even though it was lacking in pay; however, now the company seems to be more concerned with doing things to inconvenient the customer. They also like to give away gift cards if employees don't ask customers certain questions – more... and the customer catches then the employee gets in trouble and written up. – less
A typical day would be coming into the office and setting up my work station before my shift starts. Work was mostly Organizing and completing calls in the am then data entry and Insurance processing in the early afternoon. Hardest part was working almost remotely in a cubicle doing repetitive work with very minimal interaction. I learned a lot about – more... prioritization and calendar planning. I did enjoy the shift I worked and the occasional outside project from management. – less
Shift Manager (Former Employee), san bernardino,ca,92407 – September 18, 2014
Pros: loyal customers.
Cons: no breaks, sometimes get lunch.
A typical day at work was opening the store. Counting registers, putting them in front store as well as pharmacy department. Writing down a worklist for every employee scheduled to work that day. Depending on what day it was it consisted of busy busy. I learned alot about price changes, to green sheets, to coaching and counseling. And so much more. – more... My co-workers were amazing. More importantly the customers were regulars thats the most enjoyable part of my job. Satisfying our customers. When it came to cvs management was horrible. We recieved new managers periodically. They set bad examples such as working off the clock and having there family members help them get the job done. I was a shift manager which pretty much meant i would only have one cashier working with me and will not be able to take breaks and sometimes lunches. – less

Front Store Cashier (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – September 18, 2014
A very laid back simple less complex version of working at a large retail grocery store. According to most of the time co-workers are great, friendly, and helpful. Was always a pleasure to work for stop-n-shop pharmacies.

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Oakwood, GA – September 17, 2014
Pros: great co-wokers, flexible hours, professionalism, awesome pharmacists
Cons: low pay, few raises, 30 min lunches, stress vs. pay, rude customers
Great work environment but don't expect great raises. If you have no experience then you will be started just above min wage. Raises are once ANNUALLY and full-time hours are hoard to come by. Training is a joke and the only way you learn the job is by doing it. Customers can be VERY rude when it comes to meds and insurance so expect to be treated badly – more... from time to time. They are trying to figure ways to track each employees work and grade you on may factors but if you get slammed your scores will go out the window. The PIC (pharmacy-manager at store level) won't bust your butt to bad as long as you try but if your slow don't expect to get good hours or good shifts. The only reason I've stayed as long as I have is that my boss and store managers are amazing and hav worked with me during some difficult times. – less
pharmacy technician (Former Employee), savannah, ga – September 17, 2014
Cons: cheap, no breaks, no raises unless you contact corporate
busy day in and day out I spent majority of my time at a register than actually counting medication. I learned to just be patient and that the customer is always right and to not argue with customer. poor management and disrespectful, The lead technicians would try to over step their boundaris and forget that the HPIC (head pharmacist in charge) is – more... the boss. Co-workers seemed a little to messy and would try to get a little close with your personal life instead of focusing on training technicians to improve in their weak areas on the job. The hardest part of the job would be getting the long line down at the register and the most enjoying part of the day would be getting off and going home. – less
