Working at CVS Caremark
We foster a respectful, supportive work environment for our 215,000 employees, where collaboration and teamwork are valued, and colleagues are rewarded for their contributions. Our efforts – consistently recognized by organizations focused on workplace best practices – enable us to attract and retain talented individuals who contribute to our growth and success, and deliver the best service to our customers.
CVS Caremark honors our best and celebrates their success – ranging from the prestigious Paragon Award for exceptional service to in-store "instant recognitions" for a job well done. Our workplace programs have led to high levels of employee satisfaction and engagement, and resulted in industry-leading retention rates.
We are committed to building an environment of inclusion and acceptance that values diversity. Diversity makes good business sense and good common sense, enabling us to know and serve our customers; attract, develop, and retain the best talent in the marketplace; and welcome different opinions, ideas, and perspectives.
All of our colleagues – from pharmacy staff to our store colleagues – receive training through nearly 50 different training and development programs, including our Emerging Leaders Program for high-performing colleagues across the company. Promoting from within is another way we help our colleagues advance their careers.
Our company works with hundreds of nonprofits, schools, faith-based organizations and government agencies to find people who want to work, but who face barriers such as a disability, lack of education or age. These programs provide job skills training and work experience, as well as vocational and career advancement opportunities.
