Retail Store Manager in Kansas City:
Pros: Pharmacy forward oriented service programs are state of the art and inventive and developed toward profit but with obvious care first service.
Cons: Corporate has no clue of the actual work conditions in the stores. Leaving stores in perilous conditions of employee safety and moral. Store managers are under utilized for their skills because of an corporate office intent on program after program to micro manage every facet of the store and employee function. Literally a 40 hour week just conducting, completing and documenting/reporting results.

Pharmacy Technician in Tucson:
"Wish it was still target."
Pros: Nothing at all. Wish it was still target. With the take over its like cvs is trying to force out all of us previous employees of target.
Cons: After take over of target I got hired on by cvs. Kept my pay and was told I qualified for benefits. However when enrollment came around I was given the run around saying I dont work enough hours to qualify. When you calculate my average hours per week I got 33 hours but the is still not good enough according to them when all their information clearly lists 30 hours needed to qualify. Horrible company to work for.
Pharmacy Technician in Ronkonkoma:
Pros: Good education experience,
I would definitely work at a pharmacy if you plan on working in the medical field or pharmacy because you learn a lot about the drugs, insurance, and customer service. CVS provides on the job training as well. It's a good opportunity.
Cons: Very stressful dealing with the pressure of lines, not having enough staff at surrent times of the day. Learning and dealing with medical information not knowing everything makes its difficult to answer questions.
Retail Store Manager in Sebring:
Pros: Nothing it's a terrible place to work.
