A true leader fights for their team! A true leader stands up for their team! A true leader defends their team! A boss throws their team under the bus, whereas a leader would never do that. A boss says “I” and a leader says “we”. A boss barks out... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at CVS
there is a major movement nationwide for a pharmacist union being enforced. The work conditions are not possible. Patients health is at danger. No Time for bathroom breaks No time to eat, constant budget cuts make work conditions impossible. This has... — read more
So this has irked me for some time now. I saw on MyLife about holidays, and it mentioned how getting time off on holidays is good for your well being and your overall health. It states that it’s good to have time off to be with your family, and to... — read more
A while back, the question on the lp audit, “is the store manager working 2 nights a week?” was taken off. Our DL had LP put the question back on the Audit. Has this happened in any other district? We also had to sign papers that if we didn’t work... — read more
What i am about to say, maybe harsh and it is just a thought. I am throwing this out to open up conversation and get others opinion. I didn’t like what happened, but I think some responsibility should lie within our profession. I think we should all... — read more
This unlicensed DL, and other higher ranking positions Being occupied by people that have absolutely 0 knowledge of being a pharmacist or the work that goes into it. This is beyond ridiculous that a person who is not a pharmacist can hold you... — read more
Does anyone know if this rule still applies? I feel like it’s pretty much downright impossible to get this done now. Takes us about 48 to fully finish.
that Walgreens the store that had tons of FS payroll and really invested in their stores is now falling apart while CVS which has essentially cut stores to below minimum staff and done the bare minimum (if even that) in updating is doing so... — read more
North Carolina store here. Just been told by DL that we are going to be downgraded from Store Manager position to team leader and by end of next year we will all be hourly. Its time to head for the nearest exit
Here in Indiana, nearly all of our hours are going to RX. Honestly, it is really going to hurt CVS's brand, the front store is a convenient store. WE now have banker's hours, people are just going to go to Walgreens instead.
Why are they constantly b–ching about Carepass. Flu shots. Now it's simple dose. My god!! How much more can we do with no help?? District leaders said regional said write them up. If I do there wont be anyone left. This company has gone to... — read more
Received word that our new AVP ole D–k is going to manage payroll personally. HES THE NEW BIG CHEESE IN THE EAST. He is going to check it every day. Anyone over is gonna be in lots of trouble. Lol. Sounds like a Cartoon. Im gonna get that... — read more

Saw a post on reddit about cvs getting new red shirts for employees. And they even had pics. Nice looking polo shirts. Anyone know anything? Is there truth to this? Ironically someone also said the supposed new shirts look awfully similar to... — read more
What moral? At an all time low , not a question. Lets see anyone defend that? Big problems get bigger when moral drops as low as it is now. Lets see the RL’s and enablers of the cvs destruction chime in and defend it.
It’s saturday morning and I get a call from the RD. What is going on with payroll? Within 30 seconds, I realize that we have lost control of our company to people who come from failing companies like Sears and Macy’s! The message was loud and clear... — read more
Anyone have any idea what percentage of stores will be going to RX hours? Are we talking about 20-30% of stores getting reduced hours or something bigger like 60-70%? We have something like 9,900 stores. So are we talking about something like... — read more
Managers and pharmacists asked not to really discuss it openly quiet yet. Not every store will be affected. Some only RX, some both, some coming off 24 hours. No layoffs if that’s what you are worried about. Corporate will make this public mid... — read more
It is always easier to find a job when you already have one. Always. Everybody at CVS should be searching for something better right now...
Obviously there has been ALOT of chatter over the past couple of days about the potential operating hours changes coming in January. I’d love to ask my SM, but am afraid to open a can of worms if I do, since I haven’t heard anything yet. When might... — read more
Where do you think they are going to cut to reduce debt—- change operation hours in stores under 30,000 per week — reduce head count - DL - Rl , it is just the start !
Why is that?
I believe the Aetna severance policy will be expiring soon. Assuming we will be merged into the CVS policy. What does CVS corporate offer for severance? Is there a salary continuation period followed by severance weeks? Outplacement services?
Drastic hour cuts. Matching RX.
They know they can't run a store and do what they are asking others to do. The days of Department Managers, Key Carriers, Merchandisers, Porters, Assistant Managers, Acting Assistant Managers, Manager Trainees, Head Cashiers, Cashiers, Cosmeticians... — read more
People are talking about it in the replies like it's a done deal, but there was no official word on it from what I can tell. How do we know it's really happening? What am I missing?
It’s the beginning of the end guys! Soon all your pr-scrip-ions and otc products will be delivered via drones. Cvs doesn’t need the fs anymore!
Just got a text that we need to be on a top secret regional conference call? Only SM and PM no other colleagues. Anyone else have this? Know what it’s about?
Store manager here... I might be accepting a job with another company in January 2020. How do I remain eligible to collect the Manager bonus paid out (Mid March is when I got last year’s)? Can I step down to a part time supervisor or cashier and work... — read more
Stores are now out of favor and a drag for the company. So what! Realize that leadership is interested in one thing. Shareholder Returns! .....Cut, cut, cut expenses. Where? The stores! It's easy! Executives know that the companies future is NOT... — read more
Has anyone heard what we are looking at for FS budgets in 2020. Will it be a drastic (20+ hour) cut like last year or just a few hours cut? Obviously there will be some sort of cut, as I think we would all have to quit out of shock if they didn’t cut... — read more
Keep up supporting each other and get the word out to future students pharmacy is not stable. They will be in huge debt with a hard job market. Don’t let the pharmacy schools fake them out into thinking there is a need for pharmacists. Everything... — read more
How many of our executives actually know how to run a store? Give one of our execs a quarterly stock report and they can explain it to you in detail. They know about business, finance and how to run a board meeting. But how many actually could... — read more
I went from a green store to a red store. And have no idea why. Did this happen to anyone else?
Layoffs coming in December monthly pharmacist. Confirmed today
Interesting question... Anyone know the real reason? "Is that the real reason they changed signing the ad to Sunday morning.. because we will close early with rx sat night?" by Anonymous | Post ID: @11gyBdeY-ezdo
Who’s out there who has one, is in the process of remodeling, or is on the short list for this quarter? What have you been told about your position and others in the store? Does the store manager have to apply through Star Source, interview... — read more
If you have to work over your 45 hours just to get everything done, then corporate is seriously in the wrong! Like this company doesn’t take enough of our lives from us, and now we work for free?? Disgraceful that corporate allows this to go on! I... — read more
