Fast, fun and friendly culture, we care about each other , people are # 1 priority..
General Store Manager (Current Employee), Mission Viejo, CAJuly 31, 2014
Pros: great bonus!
Cons: some of pur programs are too slow.
On a typical day we open the store around 7am , I got to work around 6:30am to ensure daily deposit is completed ,I ensure the store is grand opening ready , in order to ensure superior customer service , I spend sometimes analyzing the daily schedule to ensure proper staffing levels, responding quickly to all back – up calls. Ensuring all employees – more... are asking can I help you find something/walk customers to the products they are asking for by modeling, coaching, and recognizing.
All team members establishing and modeling a great looking Store attitude and face the store to planogram because I always treat them like my own family , I care for them all and I always go the extra miles for all of them.
I have learned that sometimes all it takes is a smile and listen to a customer/employee can make a great impact.

I always provide honest feedback, coaching , mentoring and recognition Driving a safety culture; leading by example, actively participating in my safety culture, and immediately addressing safety concerns. Leading store to uphold legal standards in the area of compliance including meal periods, rest breaks etc...

The hardest part of my job is when my delivery truck show up 3-6 hours late at least twice a month ...I never know in advance when the driver will be late until I call to find out myself.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the freedom to motivate and inspire my team on a daily basis.
I am happy just for waking up in the morning , being positive, fair, firm and consistent are the way for me. – less

Not enough employee's
Cashier (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXJuly 30, 2014
Pros: nice staff
Cons: hardly any breaks, unfair guest comments.
They only had two employees for front of store a manager and cashier, and usually the manger was busy in pharmacy or elsewhere, and you were expected to greet every customer and cashier wait on perfume and photo center and do your other duties, put up stock, check expiration dates etc. and customers got to grade whether you greeted them and walked them – more... to item which was unfair because sometimes you were waiting on someone else or busy doing the other duties. – less

Secure job, but no career advancement
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Palm Beach Gardens, FLJuly 30, 2014
Pros: steady job
Cons: no career advancement opportunities, poor management at district/regional/corporate level
When hired, I was promised several career advancement opportunities. However, 6 years later, I still have not seen any come true. Stores are always understaffed due to ridiculous payroll constraints.

Fast- paced evironment where there is always something new to learn
Registered Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 29, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: no room for growth and no incentives
A typical day working at CVS for me is filling 300-400 prescription daily and constantly moving at a fast pace. At CVS you're learning new things non stop. I became more excel in knowing the different types of drugs and what they are use for and how to fix problems we face during billing insurance. Both my co- workers and the management team is helpful – more... and hard working and friendly towards customers. The hardest part of my job is not being able to advance from where I am now in the company. The thing I enjoy the most working at CVS is the reactions we get when a customers comes in and do not expect their medication to be ready and it is or when they are shocked that we can acknowledge them by their names when we see them walk to the counter. – less
