In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CVS Health said it’s embarking on the most ambitious hiring drive in the company’s history. The Woonsocket, RI-based pharmacy chain plans to immediately fill 50,000 full-time, part-time and temporary roles across the country.
Roles include store associates, home delivery drivers, distribution center employees and member/customer service professionals. The company will utilize a technology-enabled hiring process that includes virtual job fairs, virtual interviews and virtual job tryouts.
Many roles will be filled by existing CVS Health clients who have had to furlough workers, including Hilton and Marriott.
The company is also awarding bonuses to employees who are required to be at CVS facilities during the pandemic. Bonuses will range from $150 to $500, and will be awarded to pharmacists and certain other health care professionals on the frontlines, store associates and managers, and other site-based hourly employees.
