    I worked at CVS Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The job was close to my home and I liked most of the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Management had ulterior motives and when I didn't quite do what they wanted (they were trying to get a pharmacist that had worked there for years to quit) they cut my hours until I was forced to quit (one 4 hour shift in a week is going too far)
