Qualified candidates can apply for open positions by texting “CVS” to 25000 or clicking here for local listings. The candidate will then enter a digital screening process, fill out an online application, virtually try out for the job and — if successful — be immediately hired during the event.

The initiative is to fill as many positions as possible before the upcoming flu season and to help with ongoing COVID-19 vaccinations and testing.

“Every flu season we need additional team members, but this year we’re looking for even more. With the continued presence of COVID-19 in our communities, we’re estimating a much greater need for pharmacists, trained pharmacy technicians, nurses, and retail store associates. These jobs offer a rewarding opportunity to really make an impact on public health in our country.”

Neela Montgomery, Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President, CVS Pharmacy
