The pharmacy team is usually great! Everyone helps when help is needed. Also, everything runs smoothly and less stressful, depending on the type of pharmacist-on-duty. When you have pharmacist who sees no issue to constantly do things that are not by the book, all in order to have high scores for the store, it becomes a problem for the pharmacy team members. Operations should not be altered unethically for any reason. In terms of compensation, it is just okay. I believe there is not much room for growth unless you are in school to become a pharmacist or in the medical field

CVS Pharmacy is a great place to work as far as pay goes, given the fact that the starting pay is $11.00 which is well above the minimum wage. However, corporate can be very demanding and sometimes have unrealistic expectations for store managers, causing store managers to come down on their staff. Customers are typically nice and easy to deal with and the work isn't too demanding. I've been with CVS for almost 3 years and have seen many of my coworkers move up during their time there. CVS is very generous in offering higher positions to people who they value!
I loved working with the people, but shifts were not incredibly flexible. The customers were awesome and everyday was different. You never knew what you were going to find! It was fun, I learned a lot about management styles, and would recommend this job to anyone. It is a great stepping stone for growth in many different career types.
