Former Employee - Certified Pharmacy Technician in Houston, TX (US)

I worked at CVS Health full-time (less than an year)

Pros

-you can work at multiple stores, meaning more hours for you
-for the most part, friendly coworkers
-they dumped me in a busy environment, i learn faster this way
-sufficient training, i had no experience
-Overall, its an excellent company, with good oppurtunies

Cons

-i got fired, no warning, for allowing my uncle to use my discount card for his baby grandson's otc med. which is fair and all, but what the f*ck.
-the infinite hours i mentioned? Pharmacists from all over like to call you at all hours to come in for a few hours
-wearing a shirt and tie everyday under a lab coat got tedious, i like walgreen's scrubs
-all of the locations ive worked at were sweat shop like work
-stupid customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and having the regulars come in year after year. Working the front and the back part of the store.

    Cons

    Being scheduled the whole 8 hr shift on the register. Not having 2 days off in a row. Memos from manager stating no employees are to put in for time off on the holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have family we would like to spend holidays with. We need 2 days off to reenergize so you can get the best of me at work.

    I worked at CVS Health part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learning the different types of medications; The interaction with customers and helping them with problems

    Cons

    The pay; not being supported by upper management at store level; having to make sales calls to customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a chance to voice their complaints without retaliation. It is a very important job and raising the pay scale once you get your technician license more than minimum wage.
