Great company, good leaders, excellent experience
Scottsdale, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Well developed program that gave interns insights to the company, exposure to its senior leaders, and compensated very well


Downers

Had hoped that the end of internship job/position offer portion of the program was more mature/developed...the program was recently revamped and there are plans to make the follow-on employment offers more substantive; good news for future interns


Advice to Potential Interns

Great company to intern with, excellent follow-on opportunities


Advice to Management

Ensure participating managers/directors buy into the internship program to give interns meaningful projects and duties

A great Learning Experience
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The projects that I worked on or currently I am working on have helped me in gaining a better understanding of the business and is challenging.


Downers

Internship orientation didn't provide an overview of the program. Setting up a desktop took almost a week which was a bit frustrating.


Advice to Potential Interns

To come to this internship program with an open mind and a desire to learn. If you haven't been assigned on a project go ahead and talk to your team and ask for work from them. Don't sit idle at your desk. Take full advantage of this opportunity.


Advice to Management

The management would have to focus more on providing information on the step by step process of the program like the training and benefits. Also, setting up of the systems so that interns can start working on the first day itself.

Collaboration and communication are key to the success of an organization
Scottsdale, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Working with the team on a project that was meaningful to them. Networking with key players in the organization and other interns was also a valuable part of the experience.


Downers

When I was offered I had an offer from another company. I told the other company I would let them know on Friday what I decided. The hiring agent from CVS Caremark told that the written offer would come on Friday, but it didn't come until Monday afternoon. I had to wait to get tell the other company I would not take the internship and it made me look bad.


Advice to Potential Interns

Network and go out of your way to influence. Soak up all the information but don't be afraid to have an opinion.


Advice to Management

They told me at the beginning of the internship that the way their recruiting worked is they won't offer at the end of the internship because they don't know what jobs will be available. So they said to apply to jobs a couple months before graduation next spring. The problem is the main recruiting season for MBAs is in the fall. So if I am offered a job by another company, with no offer in place, I would be very reluctant to pass on a for sure thing instead of place like CVS where I really enjoyed the internship.

A great opportunity to get broad exposure to a PBM and Medicare Part D.
Scottsdale, AZ | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The ability to network with individuals within the company.


Downers

I wish the projects were a little more close to what normal employees would do on a day to day basis.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be proactive in reaching out to different people in your internship as many are willing to share their experiences with you.


Advice to Management

I think there could be more team building and collaboration in a face to face manner, as much as possible. It is difficult with a company so large but I think that personal interaction is important.
