Enrollments

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

Carepass

What y’all think about carepass? Yay or nay? And do you think this is the best answer to Amazon prime?

Expiration dates

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

Reviews this year... 2019.

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

District Leader perspective here.

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

Loss of hours.

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.

Self checkout registers... Are they any good?

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

If you don't like CVS schedule, leave

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

Increases for taking higher volume store.

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.
