This has to be the most stressful company to work for with all the metrics and checklist. I see so many stores being ran with little or no help. I see managers in their stores by themselves for hours at a time just to make payroll I see district... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at CVS
We know districts and leaders are changing but does anyone know when the announcements will be made? Seems crazy to actually wait til Jan 1 to tell stores.
I work in corporate in RI. Don't know how long it will take to execute, but CVS wants to shed the retail side. No more selling shampoo, greeting cards and deodorant. The money is in health care delivery and insurance, and that is where they are... read more
Hospitals going bankrupt, big Pharma laying off many thousands, clinics closing, etc, etc. This is much bigger than CVS. Welcome to a true downturn, and this one feels like it will be big.
CVS needs Pharmacists-- We need to all stand up and fight back. Company wide sick out. Hit them where it counts. Are we going to stand here and let them do this to so many good loyal employees? Who's with me?
Has anyone heard about minimum hour stores cut to below operating hours x 2? Making an already near impossible job more difficult.
I see a lot of people wanting to quit right away on their own due to stress, secrecy and uncertainties. But if you are already at a point where leaving CVS is a reality for you, then why not stick it out? If you do get laid off, you'll have severance... read more
We received word here in TX via conference call this past Monday that the districts would be split up and combined into the reduced Areas. The DM and RX Supervisor title position would be eliminated in place of the newly created District Leader... read more
Its already been brought up in our district. Should get real interesting pretty soon. Rx hours cut again for the 2nd time this year. Closing at 7 starting in a couple weeks. BUT! We're getting a remodel!
The HR department has been eliminated at the Orlando DC. One associate gone on 12/01, the others at the end of Dec. Employees in other departments shown the door because of performance or errors. Very sad. No turkey given out before Thanksgiving... read more
But still no one responds with area/region/district. Regionals were made aware of this site, the only site with this so called news. If they started releasing information, then why hasn't it circulated anywhere else. 80% of these threads are... read more
Will Smit resume their positions?
Does anyone know if District Admin and Rx Scheduler jobs are safe? Any word of layoffs for these positions?
Update from FL. Everyone has been spoken to and on a confidentiality bind. All districts and regions are realigning. Effective 1/1/18 DM and Sup position will no longer exist. Only 1 new role District leader per district that will oversee FS and RX (... read more
CVS Health doses not care about employees the way they did when Tom Ryan was president, Larry Merlo only wants dollars and numbers. It is a sad day for employees who have put in years of their lives for this company however what goes around comes... read more
To sum up, our district is being broken into 4 different districts. My DM is keeping 6/22 stores then picking up 8 for 14 total stores, as a District Leader he'll be responsible for front & pharmacy. Our FMM is apparently gone but I'm not aware of... read more
Are all of the DMs going to be notified their services will not be needed starting next year? My husband is a DM and he still didn't get his notification. Is there a chance some are being speared, or is this a company wide thing and it's only a... read more
The High Turnover: Key roles pop up consistently on a company’s job site. How bad is it: A company should not be on the hunt for the same important roles in management or leadership every six months, and if they are that means that they have fallen... read more
Everyone asking what positions were affected, as if they can do anything about it with such late notice. If you're finding out people in your position are being impacted now, it's far too late to do anything. All you're accomplishing is getting a few... read more
In my area at least, all DMs and Rx Sup positions will no longer exist effective Jan. One "District Leader" per district will replace. I've heard that the plan is to have every District Leader come from an rx background so they know that side of the... read more
Not sure if they were given the option to stay as an rph or given severance, but it is upsetting. No one is safe, and brick and mortar retail is going to the way side. CVS will continue to focus on ways to make things digital and mail order/home... read more
Dms were told they are being let go at end of December. A new "District Leader" position has been created and will oversee both FS and Rx. District was cut down to 10 stores from the original 22. That's all the into we've received.
It might be a great time for every employee to sell CVS stock. They have sold your DMs, RX sups and store managers out maybe it’s time to sell them out! Would love to see the bottom drop out.
Just announced that Corp approved DM'S to hold conference calls this week with store managers and tell them what's going on...
5 managers in my district alone have been put on notice. The next district east of us, 3 managers. As this happens, please post updates. We have a closely knit district with stores within 5 minutes of each other, not sure if this is going on anywhere... read more
I'm truly tired of not knowing what's going to happen. I wish they'd just come out and tell us what's going on, even if that means I find out my position is being cut. This waiting and anticipating has become worse than anything that might come out... read more
Front store was 22 percent of the overall business -- now we are reduced to under 10 percent!!
Just announced that Corp approved DM'S to hold conf calls this week with store managers and tell them what's going on Posted by , is this true? Does this mean that we'll know at least a little bit better what's in store for us? Or will... read more
Cvs front store and pharmacy will be in decline for years-- in that environment Cvs will have to streamline the management side to account for the loss of sale and lack of changing with the times along with never putting money back into the stores... read more
It’s all true everyone, everything you are hearing is true. Everyone in management or higher positions will be affected by all these cut backs if not by this month definitely by March. (Store managers) That’s bonus time. I’m sending everyone and... read more
i've been going through the posts here, especially the one with conference call and followup meetings info, and from what i can see, nobody is safe... cvs seems to determined to turn its entire operation upside down, and we'll pay the price for it... read more
Ther will be no severance. I was offered the option of quitting voluntatily or they would find a reason to fire mea after 30 plus years. Is this possible? Are they really stooping so low that they are not even offering severance to people they are... read more
Any news on Store Manager positions? I've read through most of the recent threads & found nothing. I'm eager to know if my position is being done away with. Thanks.
One of my top Rx Sup's was let go and was not offered a position as a Pharmacist within the company but just a severance package
The way things are going with CVS, it seems I'll be safer if I find a new job right away, instead of waiting to be shown the door unprepared. I've been looking around, though, and things don't look much better in other companies. Just look at... read more
