The only ones who give two sh.ts about any negative comments are the DL's and SM. Couple years ago SM had a tizzy, asked why I click NO to , "Would you recommend family or friend to work for CVS". To even take survey, need to sign on with your... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at CVS
i recall someone posting on here a while ago that some stores are getting some sort of beauty centric remodel.. does anyone know what this type of remodel entails? what they do with beauty and what they tend to cut down on for it?
I dont know about you guys, but i am going to slam them on the engagement survey. The only time that we get to voice our opinions! Make sure to use the typing part and fill that box up! My DL is going to he shocked when he sees his district results.
If we all know what is coming our way then why do we just sit doing nothing. Our jobs is our bread and butter, our jobs is reason we can sleep at night knowing we are far away from being homeless and having nothing. So you go home from work to watch... read more
Someone had posted something about things happening in June. I'm not sure if this is everywhere but according to MySchedule, my demand has decreased yet again. Any other SM's seeing a decrease starting in June?
Pretty much every single thread that is questioning of or uncomplimentary to CVS gets quickly jumped on by some sociopath who specializes in ad-hominem attacks (with some mis-information thrown in) to unsuccessfully try to discredit the discussion... read more
To put an end to the question “will the judge block the merger” here is what the law says: “Federal law requires a judge to sign off on antitrust approvals, but it is often a formality. Deals typically close before this sign-off, given prior approval... read more
Going to a CVS for medical care would be a new low point in someone's life. The minute clinics are a joke with "health care professionals" who don't give a c-ap about their jobs. The operating hours are a joke too.
First off it is true about cuts. 5 stores in our district are being affected by these cuts which take effect on june 1st, and our DL said that these cuts are directly related to cost cutting measures due to aetna merger. I am only a shift, not a SM... read more
So I just found out, that our district is going to be hit, somewhat hard, with merger-related cutbacks officially starting on June 1st. This was announced on a conference call with the DL recently. We happen to be a good district with some high... read more
Aetna subsidiary employee here. Hate that CVS bought us and honestly hope Judge Leon throws a wrench in this deal. CVS s---s!!!! CVS strategy is going to be a flop. Who in the world wants to go to a CVS for their medical care??? The suburban CVS down... read more
http://gatehousenews.com/sideeffects/aetna-bid-derail-whistleblower-case-cvs-denied/ I’ll let this article speak for itself.
I have been working at this 24 hours CVS for almost four years now. I started as a shift and now I am an operations manager. I've had many opportunities to become a store manager but I turned them down because they would interfere with my school (in... read more
Back when they eliminated the assistant store manager position in favor of operations manager, they said at the meeting we had that there would be a push for more people to become store managers. Our ASM chose to go down to ops supervisor because... read more
Ok has anyone else been going through being overworked by their store manager. my store manager looks and acts like he is next. He looks like he is in panic mode. getting on employees for things he never asked them to do. He better not ask me to get... read more
Just looked at the most recent schedule. Starting in January my demand was cut to 157. To have only 2 people in the store all day 182 is required. So for 25 hours a week, the front is alone. Today, they’ve cut demand from 157 to 155. I’m done. They... read more
Bored with the whining , lies and ignorance. Taking a nap now.
I've never seen anything like it at corporate headquarters. The feeling around the office is people on edge, or at minimum, feeling who will get the next hammer. I was in a seemingly regular meeting with general announcements where our department... read more
https://www.reuters.com/article/aetna-ma-cvs-health/us-judge-calls-hearing-on-merger-of-cvs-and-aetna-court-filing-idUSFWN22P0ZO So the next court hearing was announced today, and it will be June 3rd. And it will last a maximum of 3 days. Per a... read more
Does that mean better and more peaceful times are in front of us, or will that start a new wave of shifting the business, which will claim it’s victims in the form of layoffs?
Just found this board. As Aetna takes over IT and financial planning I find it hilarious that the retail side has delusions of competence. It's strictly amateur hour in CVS. That's why the much of the IT infrastructure team has already been laid off... read more
You don't get to the level of Jeff Bezos without being smart. Amazon is not in the business of investing in failed ventures. So if Amazon is getting into the pharmacy market, there are two things to consider... Number one, they have to see real value... read more
I’m sure everyone will agree that this is taking too long, up to a degree that it’s hurting the company? I would like some honest thoughts on when this whole situation in court could end , realistically, and is there any doubt on what the outcome... read more
Everyone is attacking the brick and mortar d--gstore biz. So where is the growth going to come from people. Keep drinking the koolaid and getting your paychecks while the company continues to decline in growth! Never purchase the stock the company... read more
People- it's all about growth!! 3-5 years ago the CVS and Walgreens world were had no barriers to growth . With Obama care and the aging of Americans baby boomers the growth path was going as far as anyone could see, hence CVS peek of 113. Since... read more

https://www.healthleadersmedia.com/strategy/cvs-judge-please-dont-let-those-7-witnesses-testify It would appear that CVS is starting to get really concerned!
I got word today that they are (HR and ER)reviewing glassdoor/indeed employee reviews online. They didn’t say what they will be using the reviews for but at least they are reading truths written by store managers. I have a feeling its to shape the... read more
I'm surprised with all the talk of more cuts - considering that we're having trouble filling the positions that have been created by more and more people leaving. Nobody wants to work here anymore. Fewer people are applying for jobs, and when they... read more
Anyone else having trouble signing up people for carepass? I keep asking and always get turned down. DL is all about carepass right now and my store is struggling signing people up. Anyone have good advice on how to upsell this to customers?
Reading some articles that both Rite Aid & Fred's pharmacies, are in danger of filing for bankruptcy THIS YEAR. (2019) What might that mean for cvs if both those companies were to completely fail? Might we suffer from some of the fallout of having 2... read more
Anyone else realize how pitiful our discount has become? With all the 30% off coupons and 40% off single item coupons they send out it really shows they don’t care about us. I know it’s petty but just an observation
So I was just hired as a full time supervisor and my manager is telling me I have to work 2 nights a week. Is this a thing? Seems a little ridiculous to me. It should be the managers job to work those. (FYI a co worker told me about this website)
I generally was one of the few people at my workplace who had positive thoughts about the Aetna acquisition. I still think it was a good improvement and a good widening of the business. However, with all the store closings and the shifts at... read more
It's a company run by ruthless actuaries and financiers that do everything they can to prevent old people from getting medical treatment. CVS is in the big leagues now. You thought things were bad under CVS? Aetna does not give a damn about weak... read more
I’m thinking of trying to step down as a store manager and coast as an ops/ shift until I find another job. Anyone ever heard of this? Hopefully my DL doesn’t shoot it down.
CVS legacy it network team just wiped out in favor of Aetna execs running theses teams now. Whole teams fired including senior leadership which had been in place for a long time. CTO team next the PMO leadership will be next to be fired. Driving cost... read more

I started in the pharmacy at an EXTREMELY busy CVS. Like, call queues could easily go up to 7-10 on hold; it's bad. So because of this I never got trained well in QP or QT and was perpetually the pickup/ drive through/14-day b--ch. I got to do QP and... read more
