CVS Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at CVS

What a true leader does...

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

LP Audit Change

Truck in 24 hours

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

Hours Changes, CVS is handing business to Walgreens

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.

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.

This isn't a horrible idea

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

What is the CVS (corporate) severance policy?

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?
