Topics regarding layoffs at CVS
With both people and hours cut - we don't have time to do half of the things that need to be done. And customers are starting to notice and comment on it. And what happens? We get chewed out! Even if it's not our fault in any conceivable way - I... — read more
They never have and never will! They WANT the customers to linger or have YOU delay them at registers, in hopes that they will spend more money. Think about it, why does cvs NEVER respond to customer complaints about long lines at checkout? Because a... — read more
Major cuts to stores coming.. min hour stores being cut 40 hours per week 6 weeks after install. Cuts scaled to volume. 3500 stores over next two years to get them.
All of these enrollments are getting ridiculous... Email sign up Text message sign up Carepass sign up AND NOW Beauty club sign up. So much for getting the customer in and out quickly
What y’all think about carepass? Yay or nay? And do you think this is the best answer to Amazon prime?
Can anyone honestly tell me how the f**k they have time for checking dates? The folks in my district have completely stopped checking dates. I assume most of us are having a hard time keeping up with this. I just sold some expired Boost from 2018. I... — read more
This whole colleague availability issue has been a big topic of discussion on this site for quite some time. However, we need to stop judging people SOLELY based on how many hours they can or can't work. I know of some really good part-time people at... — read more

Review hasn’t posted yet, and I am curious if it’s delayed by corporate or if simply SM hasn’t put them thru yet? And how bad are reviews/raises gonna be this year after last years “big raises”? And is there anyway to fight a review if you feel you... — read more

Just so everyone is aware...cvs no longer pays 1.5X on Sundays....it is 1.4X now...when is it going to go to 1.3....1.2....1.1....and so on.... Did anyone see any kind of memo on this or are they just not telling anyone on purpose?
I agree with you and it’s frustrating at my level too. A lot of the struggle is that store level management is uncomfortable with identifying the root of the issue and disciplining. In almost every situation in my district, it takes me to intervene... — read more
I think it has a lot to do with the intense amount of training needed to do this job and the relatively low pay for technicians. It takes years to learn it and during that process it’s easier to feel like an id--t than simply untrained. Keep going to... — read more

With the announcement that Amazon Lockers will be coming to Rite Aid stores, and that rite aid was the FIRST retailer they chose to partener up with, I think it's safe to say Amazon is making a play for rite aid. Not the first time this has made... — read more
Have other stores lost a ton of hour in July? Mine has lost 30 now and I don’t know how they expect me to run this store. I could barely get by before. And this store does make budget. I give up. If the truck taskes 4 days to get done then so be it.
So our store might be getting self checkouts. Some people are coming to take measurements to see if we qualify? My manager doesn't like the idea, says they can be problematic. What do you guys think? Are they good, or just another corporate headache?... — read more
In the stores that were converted into hub stores? Now that Atlanta is getting 17 stores that will be converted in September that our question ? Someone just mentioned that the existing store manager has to interview for that position that was... — read more
Here’s a solution, get out of retail. It’s not a Monday-Friday 9-5 job. It’s a business that’s open 7-10, and 365 a year. You aren’t smart if you think there should be some clear cut rules about availability. Retail is one of the most remedial and... — read more
So I got written up for following the coupon policy.... customer had a 40% off coupon and the item was already on Sale. I go my written up for having bad customer service and not making the customer happy....should I fight this?
Do we get a pay increase if you get a higher volume store than what your in currently? Also, do you get a pay increase for becoming a Store manager/RX ?Because I didn't get one.

Just a FYI to anyone getting taken advantage of. There is NO written policy stating full time shift supervisors have to be 100% open. End of story.
According to this article, it appears cvs is indeed worried about Amazon. One of cvs’ Caremark execs tried to jump ship to Pillpack and cvs used to block him from going over to them. https://apple.news/AK7ukqk8zT967VfBAgpeCiQ — read more

Isn’t it against cvs policy to open or close the store alone? And yet when I did the math the hours I have slated for July it’s impossible for 2 people to be in the store at all times. Screw this company I will schedule over and if they try to fire I... — read more
