CVS Pharmacy Reviews

I started working at CVS in October 2015 and don't regret it! I have always liked that CVS puts the patient first. This is amazing because most companies want numbers before people.
In the pharmacy system, I would add a function that would allow us to expedite prescriptions without having to edit the prescription. Another function would be to add a return to stock function on the patient's status page without having to grab prescription at that moment.
I would also like to see benefits change. I have been working at full time for almost year but don't qualify for full time benefits because I did not start working full time at a certain timeframe.I find this disappointing because I will soon be cutting my hours due to pharmacy school.

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
Not a horrible job but not the greatest either. They could definitely improve on how they treat their employees. Over worked and under paid, for sure! Their company polices are a lot of the problem. The management was expected to do so much in so little time by the corporate office that they were sometimes, understandably hard to work for.
