Retail Shift Supervisor in Coventry:
"Overall the benefits are a mixed bag."
As a shift supervisor, I am not very high on the totem pole, so my benefits are a little limited. I don't have access to the medical insurance, but it is apparently pretty good. The 401k and Roth IRA contributions are matched up to 5%, which is pretty standard, but it is nice to have. Based on hours worked, we do get a fairly small amount of personal time, but it isn't that significant. CVS also offers an employee assistant employee assistant program that supposedly help people through life crises. I don't know anyone who uses it, including myself. We also get a 20% off store discount, and few other minor things. Everyone besides Store Mangers and Pharmacists make absolutely insulting pay for the huge amount of work and responsibility they put upon us.

Cons: Too many to list. A dangerous, hazardous work environment. High stress, no LP protection.

Customer Service Associate in Philadelphia:
"A part-time job... That will chew you up and spit you out."
Pros: I get to meet new people, make new friends, especially from co-workers. Help out handicapped individuals finding items and checking out. Occasionally work in the back, where it's quiet.
Cons: So many to list... Most obvious being under-paid compared to work load equality. Very stressful atmosphere, with demanding and impatience costumers who intermingle with shoplifters, the mentally challenged, and unpredictable and dangerous individuals. Company does not employ LP's, so I am not protected, especially as a part-timer who has no medical insurance. Any physical retaliation can get me fired. Communication between worker and company is barren and not encouraged. Don't expect a future with this company, instead, expect to quit in a year or two for your own safety.
