"I work in the PBM sector of CVS/Caremark, and do not enjoy the work settings and overall treatment of the technicians. Granted, it is a glorified factory job and production is the bottom line, as with any factory job, but the salaries are not competitive for pharmacy technicians. There is also a dichotomy that exists between the staff as the pharmacists are provided much more leeway and amenities, such as the ability to sit in the pharmacy, that technicians are not afforded.

"With the recent weather issues of sub-zero temps, CVS Caremark decided to call all employees on a Sunday evening letting them know that daycare closings would not be a valid excuse to call off on Monday. We would have to find another way. I have daycare because there is no other way. I'm sure the genius who decided this has nannies and their partner probably doesn't have to work. How wonderful for them. Thanks for threatening my job CVS. You really know how to treat your employees expcially with pizza! Sincerely, Working Mom"

"No career advancement were available in the department. The pay is horrible and you must meet your monthly quota of orders worked or else you are written up.

Starting wage is low compared to other companies and the raises are a joke. I was a part-time employee so there is no benefits I ever got."
