Filling out a CVS application online is just like submitting an application anywhere else as far as major retail chains are concerned. You simply follow the directions on their main careers web site, pick the position you want to apply for, and you submit all your information. See how Beyond.comcan help you find the job you are looking for in your area.
Many people fill out online job applications and wonder why it takes what seems like forever to get a call back from the company. Well, imagine how many apps this company must receive on a daily basis; it’s a good idea to exercise a little patience and while you wait, you may want to consider placing your application elsewhere also.
By submitting applications to several companies at a time you will expand your opportunities to get hired. For example, if you apply at CVS you can also apply at Walgreen’s, Publix, Kmart, Target, and any other retail store you can think of that fits the criteria for the position you are looking for.
This way, you can manage interviewing for 5 companies at a time and your chances of getting hired go up dramatically. Furthermore, another advantage to applying elsewhere at the same time is this; if you have picked a job in CVS as your first choice and they haven’t called yet but you have already been approached by two other companies, you can visit your local CVS, talk to the manager, and let them know they are your first choice but you haven’t received any word on an interview with them yet.
It’s highly likely the manager will be able to make a few calls and get you into the door of opportunity knowing you have already been offered a job at another major retailer. To them you will now be more attractive as a prospective employee because another respected company has already expressed a desire to hire you.
Once you fill out a CVS application online, you will probably not get called the next day, but you should be patient and give them at least one week. If the call does not come, it’s time to visit the store of your choice in person!
