    I worked at CVS Health

    Pros

    I learned a lot working there as far as how to run a business as well as how to develop a team. I had one of the most successful teams in the company ranking as the top store year over year in two separate markets, one in the Northeast one in the Southeast. I was a paragon winner with the company as well. My most recent DM was very supportive. I genuinely thank them for the opportunity and the knowledge that I acquired...

    Cons

    Work hours were excessive. To be successful hours worked were borderline slavery. While I willingly worked them to be successful, the week you didn't you were immediately behind. Vacations were almost non existent due to constant visitors from corporate stopping in to do reviews. Holiday weeks were paid 4 days regular 1 holiday and you worked all 5. The facade of the stores looking great when these people stop by versus...

    Advice to Management

    Revisit business structure. Employ cost cutting at a higher level, not at a store level otherwise you will compromise the business. If DMs are losing company vehicles so should RMs. Loss Prevention should be completely eliminated due to the fact they are ineffective and non-impactful; they are a voice with no power. I challenge corporate figures to walk into stores unannounced to anyone to really see what happens in...

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Steady workload. Always busy. Pharmacists are generally great to work with.

    Cons

    It's retail. Corporate cuts staff and hours and increases duties and expectations. Constantly coming up with new (usually unattainable) metrics and burning fires.

    Advice to Management

    If you want us to be able to deliver the quality of service you say you want us to, you need to loosen the grip on our hours and back off a little with the ridiculous expectations. We can still be profitable and do good work without EVERYTHING being about the stockholders. None of us are fooled thinking that you care anything for us. You only care about the money we don't cost you.
