"It can be really great, but upper level management is too involved. The team is also SO lean that you feel like you can never accomplish anything"

"Overall, I see senior female leaders supporting more junior female colleagues here. Female colleagues are equally appreciated as male colleagues. There are people that are smart and good collaborators. But watch out for some exceptions that are not necessarily team players. "

"Retail pays very low and this is no exception. Female managers face a level of scrutiny that male managers do not face. "

"I don't recommend being a store manager for this company. You will be the only salaried employee in that building. Corporate cuts your payroll to the level that the only way to get all the work done is for YOU to come in on your own time, and for no extra pay. It doesn't matter how good you are at managing your time, you will constantly have to choose between working for free, or not getting important tasks done. "

"I was 'asked' to return early from maternity leave, if that's any indication of how the company supports working moms. Promotions are hard to come by unless you are in the office until late and come in very early. "

"I was bullied relentlessly. Lies were made up about me, people went to my boss and said I made threats and said terrible things that I did not and would never say. Instead of doing an investigation on what was said, my boss believed the other woman because she favored her over me. There is too much gossip, jealousy and lies. The jealousy has gone as far as coworkers stalking me on facebook years after I quit. Current employees say they still mock me to this day for things I didnt even do. Cannot tell you the number of times a lie was made up about me. And this is in a Pharmacy! The place was always backed up on peoples medications because they would sit around gossiping instead of doing their job. I had to quit."

"CVS is an international, stock driven company. Employees are labeled with a 7 digit number and are treated like tools. As a mother, who takes my career seriously, CVS' culture has deemed me as unavailable because of children. To obtain and retain benifits I have had to seek out retail locations across my state to keep full-time status because my home-store, which is 0.5 miles from my home, will not negotiate family friendly hours."

"If you're looking for a progressive, positive workplace, this isn't for you. "
"I happen to enjoy the people I work with! You have to have thick skin to work with the public because they can be very mean at times! So go to work every day determined to treat people the way you want to be treated! I have learned it works most of the time and I have made so many friends by doing this! Smile always!!!"
"Ot what it used to be.unrealistic expectations without adequate resources.."
"Very little hours and massive amounts of work hold you totally accountable so you better be able to work 24/7 to get it done..forget family or personal life."
"It is very frustrating at times and you do 2 to 3 jobs at once. You are pulled in many different ways and must get your job done in time. They expect to much from certain people."
"I have been put in situations with minimal training and held to an expectation I couldn't possibly attain."
"women don't advance beyond store level"
"For young women who are single with no children who want a fair paying customer service job I would strongly recommended this company. Training is intensive and you gain vast knowledge of healthcare."
"There are quite a number of women in executive roles."
"I WORKED FOR THE COMPANY 18 YEARS HAD A GREAT TIME JUSY SMILE AND TREAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU WANT TO BE TREATED"
"If you are being shown how to do a multi step task, make notes. You will be alone before you know it and really need to know how to do these things. Don't abuse and don't take abuse from co-workers or customers. Working here is a privilege, NOT a right!"
"I think I would have gone to college. As there really isn't any advancement for some people here."
"The corporation will follow its policies to a T - if they offer maternity leave, for example, you'll get everything that is in writing. You don't have to worry about that. Make sure, though, that you do the same - keep everything that is in writing. If they send an e-mail telling you that you have to make so many phone calls or get a certain score or rating, make a copy. The corporation will tell you that cusstomer health and safety is all important but it's all lip service. They will push so much responsibility on you - a million things a day that can't possibly get done in the time you have - and if a mistake is made, you'll be the one to take the fall. Keep records of everything and cover your butt!! Other than that, work hard to build your co-workers into a team. You're all in this crazy retail/pharmacy world together and a strong team is what will make it successful."
"unless u kiss BUTT ur not gonna get no where."
"dont work here"
"I've been with this company for 5 years, 3 years of which were full time. Our raises, benefits, and incentives keep getting worse, but they keep piling on the extra work. Get out now."
"Make sure you stand firmly on what your value's are to the company, don't allow them to talk you out of a starting wage, they can give you more. They have drastically changed the percentage of a raise where once you could make up to 3.5% now its much lower and they have changed the Red line of what your can make in your current position."
"This should only be a temporary job. I have worked for this company for about 15 years. When I first started staff was treated well even though men always were paid more even in lower level positions than I was in. The only people who make money are at the corporate level. Most stores run on ridiculously tight budgets both in fs and rx. Front store normally runs with one management and one cashier. However the work load is not reduced. This is also an unsafe situation as we are expected to walk customers to the bathrooms that are not public and are usually far away from both rx and the register areas. Staff is also expected to watch for shoplifting etc...all while greating customers and walking them to items they need and still make sure there is no line at the register. This does not include the normal long list of tasks that must get done to keep a store neat and clean, shelves stocked, cash verified etc etc etc........Run from any offer given by this company. I have only stayed for the medical insurance which is no longer worth while. Raises are often just skipped not that .20 an hour is much help. They also constantly break labor laws. I will be leaving ASAP. What a shame that this company advertises how much they care about people but they don't care for there own staff or worry about safety."
"Way to much physical labor makes it difficult to unload and break down pallets."
"Be prepared to have no life. Your Dm's will not back you. They degrade you. Their is no work life balance at all! Men get away with murder. Women are treated like dirt. A lot of the "good olÃ© boy" network."
"Weigh all the other options fairly and clearly -this is not the place to be if you're not strong or are lazy! It's tough and it's mean and nobody really cares about you as an individual -just what's good for the company as a whole."
"Its very stress full they always tell you that you will not fail.. But you can totally tell when they want you to fail or when they want to fire you. Sometimes its all you have even though you have put a quite of bit hours there"
"Don't be shy. If you want to know something ask. If you would like to move up let them know. Do the work but don't be taken advantage of just because you are a hard worker."
"You have to be a strong person, both physically and mentally as well as say good-bye to personal life. The company is making big profits at the expense of the "little" people."
"It is constantly changing--strategies, people and nothing is ever enough"
"Be work friends with everyone."
"stay in school!! get an education. this job is not worth the frustration. you work hard,theres no coverage if someone calls out. jut not worth it"
"started at minimum wage"
"There is little support from supervisors. The company wants numbers and metrics with little employee support. I wanted to step down to staff position but was not allowed the opportunity."
"I have been with the company since December so far it has been very good to me, I only get over time during Christmas. Rest of the time I am only working 24 to 28 hours a week, I do wish it paid a bit more but its a job and I can't really complain."
"The company is NOT flexible with hours, so if there is anything you need to do besides work whenever they are open, there is going to be issues. Be careful if you take a maternity leave; I worked for a month upon my return without getting paid and it took them six months to get it sorted out. Men advance a lot further than women and get special treatment, especially if you're into what the "boss" is into, like golf or drinking. I worked for the company for a long time; I could write a book on all the unethical things that happen within the company."
