CVS Health reviews



Rating - Job Title



Grievance Resolutions Analyst

Scottsdale, AZ - March 5, 2020


It's definitely a great environment. Advancement depends on where you are. Small teams make it harder to move within the company. But there is always something to learn and places to grow



Beach Park, IL - March 5, 2020


While I work at cvs I got to learn how to ring up certain items, do inventory, invoices etc.. I met some cool co workers as well, they were very friendly


Front End Associate

Layton, UT - March 5, 2020

Not enough hours!!!!

I was excited to work for CVS at first. Once I started working there I was only schedule for 1-2 days a week. Each shift is only 3-5 hours each. Nobody can live on the pay from those hours. They over schedule and change the schedule all the time.



Yonkers, NY - March 5, 2020

Good place

This place over works you. Manager helps put out merchindide but can have his favorite people as well family friendly ok place to wotk just not for me


Pharmacy Technician

United States - March 5, 2020


I worked at CVS for years. I applied initially for full time and was promised this. I never received full time or benefits in all of the years I worked there. CVS policies state that you have to be SCHEDULED full time on the schedule corporate sees and documents for 9 months to 1 year to receive full time benefits. They would schedule me and my other coworkers just under 30 hours and work us over 30 so they got the full time work without having to supply full time benefits. I worked at multiple locations in various regions. Each store runs the same (as to be expected from corporate). Not only is every store I have worked in understaffed, corporate continues to this day to CUT pharmacy hours. They intended to allot (in one of the very high volume stores I recently worked in) only 60-70 TECH HOURS between 7 technicians. You do the math. That's right that only gives each tech 10 hours. Not that any of the stores pay attention to the schedules anyways. Every store I have had the PLEASURE of working at the pharmacist always tries to keep everyone over their scheduled block of time. They don't ask you if you can stay over they TELL you that you ARE staying over and will threaten your job for trying to leave at or around your SCHEDULED time to leave. For instance, I worked from 9am to 7pm one day and I was kept until CLOSING at 10pm! I NEVER got off on time. The average amount of time I stayed past my shift was 1.5 to 2 hours over. Some of my coworkers and myself would get sick with contagious illnesses (flu) and they would still FORCE us to come in because they could not "find anyone


Registered Nurse, IV Infusionist

Columbia, MD - March 5, 2020

Awesome work/awful administration

I absolutely love my job as an infusion nurse. I have been fortunate to have amazing patient's, which is why I stayed with the company as long as I did. We schedule our patient appointments ourselves, which allows for a lot of flexibility and freedom. In and of itself, this job is the best of the best. The flip side is the administration. They have zero insight on what it is like to provide home care, and yet make plenty of decisions based off of complete ignorance. There is little regard for patient well-being. They treat their nurses as a non-desirable expense (not as the individuals who are infusing patients with $20,000 medications).


Cashier/Sales Associate

Peoria, IL - March 5, 2020

CVS is not a place of employment I would recommend.

I worked at CVS 5+ yrs. There was no respect or empathy from mgmnt towards employees. IF I was ill, I was told to come in regardless. The Corp ONLY cares about shareholder profits. Sadly, that's the norm these days.



Phoenix, AZ - March 5, 2020

Open work schedule

The best thing about CVS is that you have a open window to start work. You have between 6–10a to get there and to make sure you put your eight hours in.


Lead Technician and Inventory Specialist

Charleston, SC - March 4, 2020

My coworkers are my family but I would not recommend someone to work for CVS

I gave six, very long years, to this company and at the end of the day that meant nothing. I was given no choice but to quit while on maternity leave because HR refused to give me a straight answer when it came down to the details of my leave and put me in a very stressful situation. I had planned my entire leave months before I had my baby and was told repeatedly that my return date was acceptable only to find out that I was supposed to return 2 months before what I believed to be that return date. I had no where and no one who could care for my baby and when I spoke to several representatives they lacked any sort of compassion. This company makes a ton of promises that are then suddenly forgotten about the following week. They push out the hard workers, don't allow proper training for new and eager workers, constantly cut hours and make targets nearly impossible to reach! If you want to work for a company that treats you as just another number, CVS is the place to be!!


Event Management Systems Architect

Phoenix, AZ - March 4, 2020

Reasonable large corporate environment

CVS Health is mostly what you would expect from a large corporate environment. It is heavily weighted by accounting practices and driven by ROI, which can be both a plus and a minus.


Clinical Infusion Pharmacist

Carmel, IN - March 4, 2020

Poor work life balance

CVS ran the infusion division like it was a retail establishment. They did not seem to have a good understanding of the home infusion industry. The expectation was to provide excellent care for the patients and complete ridiculous amounts of paperwork, but they refused to allow OT.


Architect Advisor

Atlanta, GA - March 4, 2020

Great place to work

Felxiable, Fun and friendly environment.


Shift Supervisor

Grove City, OH - March 4, 2020


This company was great to work for. The management was ok... they passed me over for a promotion due to an illness. when I returned to work there was a new person in the position.


Cashier/Sales Associate

New York, NY - March 4, 2020

The most enjoyable part of the job

The most enjoyable part of my job is making sure and knowing that I can keep a smile on a customers face and being a team player with my fellow colleagues. I learned so much about the company it’s not a hard job to do. I enjoy being a people person and helping others. I’m approachable and accessible to customers at all times on the floor. I love this work in a clean safe environment also .


CPhT Pharmacy Technician

Bakersfield, CA - March 3, 2020

Good place to work

Good place to work. There is a lot of room for advancement if you work really really hard. Short staffed a lot but if everyone works together it doesnt seem to hard.


Omnicare Administration/Receiving Clerk

Patterson, CA - March 3, 2020

Learning experience

I started out not knowing anything. I have moved all the way to the pharmacy department and have done every job in my current department. I train and am a backup for the pharmacy. I currently focus on the administration part of my job but I also work in the production side of the business.


Pharmacy Technician

Bartlesville, OK - March 3, 2020


The job offers all the training you need to do the job. If you can get a good manager and staff the job is actually alot of fun to do. Customers are great.


Shift Supervisor

New Rochelle, NY - March 2, 2020

An ok job.

At the time, it was a good situation that ended up becoming stressful. Manager position was a rotating door. I had 5-7 new managers a year. Underwhelming pay for the amount of work but great benefits.


Order Selector

Somerset, PA - March 2, 2020

Alot of work is included

You work alot of overtime. You work long hours some days. Some weekends are required to work. 2nd shift is mandatory overtime you can not turn it down.


Therapy Liaison for Cystic Fibrosis

Lenexa, KS - March 2, 2020

unlimited hours for overtime:

The lack of knowledge that is needed to move forward in the company. The atmosphere is much like a prison with guards on each isle so you do not communicate with the other areas or other "teams"
