Budgets were released for 2018 payroll. Its bad. My store currently does average of 65-70k a week in fs and 2000+ scripts a week. We were running at a fs payroll budget average of 270-290 my new weekly budget is 261-264 per week. Making an already difficult job even harder, im in CA btw. The metrics will not be lowered and the standards have to remain the same. Time to go work elsewhere, or sue CVS for certain things they violate. Everybody talk to your DL and see what you have in store

We can’t run at Amazon efficiencies if you want to be a customer facing retail store. You have to invest in the experience. We aren’t a closed door warehouse. At some point they’ll connect that dot. Of course sales might bump your demand, but it’s a 4-6 week lag in mySchedule and won’t always correlate the following months. CVS wants to run lean and DLs want their bonuses and it will come at the expense of all the boots on the ground. Did they bump your hours for delivery roll out?
They’ve been cutting all these years to pad the blow from declining sales. Aetna doesn’t address the state of retail for CVS it just changes the direction the company is focused...which is away from retail. Why do you think Helena left? Pharmacy will still stand but will front store?
Guys, sales cures everything. Look inside your building and see what u can do to increase sales and margin. My store was 65k per week and I took it to $85k a week and my budget went up. With green sheets there is another report which gives u per how many $$ amount o we budget in sales u get extra hour. It ranges from $150-$300 extra sales you get additional hour. Times are tough and retail sales is going down company has to cut budget if there is no sales.
I'm not sure who stared this thread about CVS, the only thing I see different is CVS firing some of their DM, the budgets for running the stores seems to always get cut EVERY YEAR, if you can run a store on less budgeted hours they are going to do it. If CVS can hire someone for less money than what these fired DM were making, why not? WHAT COMPANY would NOT do that? So, again, how are/have things changed since the talk about buying Aetna out?
I'm minimum hour store 182 hours cut to 167.
Got my budgets today. 24hr store, 75k/week. Looking at 350-360... 15 less than now, not nearly as bad as I was thinking
My store makes 40-50 a week & we only get 202 and do 2k scripts a week. Welcome to Florida!!! ( where upper management makes up their own rules)
New Manager, your dm has you’re yearly budget. You take the budget and divide by 52 thats your labor budget weekly. Green sheets will not be updated properly until February
As a fairly new manager, is there a way I can check this from my store? Are my greensheets updated or do I have to ask the DM?
I also second this. My store does 55k a week and is now classified as minimum staffing 255 hours a week. My DM said “im sorry this isnt right, but there is nothing i can do” he sounded deflated
So, how are we to achieve this? Something has to give, right?
