Q: What is it like working at CVS / Pharmacy?

Pharmacy Technician in Hicksville, New York:
"Work hard. Very Hard."
Pros: Most customers are awesome
Cons: Some customers have unrealistic expectations

Operations Supervisor:
No one cares about you. Its dehumanizing. You cant even go home when youre sick. No coverage ever. Good luck making it to the bathroom. Good luck getting a raise also. 12 cents if anything. No promotional opportunities.

Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPHT):
I'm finding that we are overworked and underpaid. We are supposed to rotate stations throughout the day, but I have found that isn't always the way it is. There are older techs that don't want to do anything but fill. They don't like helping customer's and stand in one spot yelling directions and orders to other technicians. They don't want to do anything that they deem beneath them. Sometimes even the pharmacist are afraid to put their foot down and make sure things are ran the way that CVS intends it to be.

Cashier in Danville, California:
Pros: greeting and helping people find the items and helping in the photo dept.

"Run forest run."
