CVS Health Maternity Leave Comments
  • "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." - Anonymous
  • "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." - Anonymous
  • "Corporate roles here are fabulous. However, CVS has a long way to go in terms of benefits - like fully paid maternity leave, etc. " - Anonymous
  • "The maternity leave is terrible, 6 weeks at 60% pay." - Anonymous

  • "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. " - Anonymous
  • "They did just institute a month of paid leave in 2018 using funds from tax reform, so a step in the right direction. " - Anonymous
