Cashier at CVS Pharmacy

almost 2 years ago
There is a lot of demand in the Cashiering position. I worked there when the recession was happening and so it is possible that there was a higher demand at the time. As I went through the process working at CVS, I had a lot of responsibility and it was a very demanding job. People were wanting to be in and out quickly. This requires as person to be quick on their feet when needed. Also there are a lot of products that need to be stocked and there isn't always a person to stock. So this may require a person to stock the product and run the cash register at the same time. There is a lot of responsiblity to know what you are selling as well. If a person asks about a Vitamin, it is good to know what it's usage is for because sometimes Pharmacists are too busy. There are generally only one Pharmacists there at a time. Although, other times, there are students that are in the Pharmacy who may have an idea.

Cashier/Floor Associate at CVS Pharmacy

almost 2 years ago
As a cashier/floor associate I expected to have full ownership over my work but it turns out I didn’t. For example, whenever our store load came in the cashier was responsible for restocking items located at the front of the store. I remember trying my hardest to get it done while checking expiration dates (people don’t buy as much candy as they used to) and ringing up endless customers. I knew it was almost impossible for me to finish restocking given the fact that it was a Friday evening which usually meant more customers and traffic at the front end. Yet, my supervisor would say it shouldn’t have taken me that long until I reminded her that candy also has expiration dates. My recommendation is not to expect much ownership but once you get past the probation period they’ll probably grant more leeway.
