Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAAugust 1, 2013
Pros: you get out of it as much as you put into it.
I learned a lot from the entire team at multiple stores and from the online courses. Everyone I encountered was willing to help me learn different aspects of the job. Cross training and team work are very important to the teams I worked with.

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

An Intense Corporate Culture
Client Service Manager, HR Shared Services (Former Employee), Woonsocket, RIJuly 29, 2014
Pros: strong community of colleagues
Cons: work / life balance is sadly lacking
CVS Caremark has a very strong corporate culture and brand integrity. They operate very strongly toward their Vision, Mission and Values statements.

Like any other corporate culture there is a great opportunity to grow and be developed there. However, there is also an opportunity to lose a great deal of work/life balance.

Fast paced work environment
Shift Manager (Former Employee), Staten Island, New YorkJuly 29, 2014
While I did work for CVS for many years, it was more convenience because they were willing to work around my school schedule. I did enjoy working there and loved the customers and became quite close with many of them but upper management didn't always treat us very well. I did learn a lot about managing and delegation since I was in charge of a staff – more... of over 15 people. – less

Pharmacy Tech in training
Pharmacy Technician in Training (Current Employee), Minot, NDJuly 28, 2014
Pros: great experience with part of the medical field.
Cons: minot has so many people our store is usually very hectic.
I work with others to take in needed information and process/fill patient prescriptions. We are also cashiers and perform customer service duties in store and through the drive thru window. We have work stations that do different parts of the whole job. We have contact with insurance companies and patients. In all steps we are working to serve our patients – more... to the best of our abilities to improve total health. – less

Very Rewarding Job and Always Learning Something New
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Griffin, GAJuly 28, 2014
Pros: customer satisfaction, knowledge giving
Cons: scheduling, no advancement as promised
CVS has a great understanding for customer satisfaction and care. I worked every position available in the pharmacy to extend my knowledge of the work flow and process. The customers often requested me when they were there to pick up a script and I was the only employee offered tips on several occasions. The joy from connecting with customers is indescribable. – more... The most rewarding opportunity I had ever been given the chance to take on. – less

Very long hours (12+ per day) based on daily workload which was not known until you arrive at work.
Chasing and Stocking Production Planner (Former Employee), North Augusta, SCJuly 28, 2014
Pros: enjoyed the 55-85 associates that reported to me.
Cons: never knew what the day held until you arrived at work.
Good place to work but a new director took over when the original director took over a new distribution center in TX. New director wanted his own people so almost all employees were asked to leave or forced out.

A Day in the Pharmacy
Virginia Board Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Pulaski, VAJuly 27, 2014
Pros: great pharmacy manager and lead technician
Cons: limited hours, pay, benefits
A lot of the pharmacy work is mental work and requires an employee to demonstrate responsibility and time management skills. I've learned how to effectively work on a team, communicate to co-workers and customers, and manage daily tasks. I have the best co-workers. I could not have worked in a better pharmacy. The hardest part of the job is the fact – more... that it can be stressful. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to work with people from different areas since our store is so close to a college town. – less
