I worked there for 12 years and was adversely dis crimin ated against in the following ways: Executive Leader J o h n B uck ley, one time Chief Compliance Officer, blocked a promotion for my employee named L. H u g hes because of his se x ual identity, I protested and fought him to no avail, and I was later retaliated against, denied promotions and forced to leave after multiple public humiliation and moving my offices to smallest cubicle, taking all work away and removing my team for me. Most Recently Senior Director R a ja Ra mas am y of PMO repeatedly dis crimi nate d by race and age against me by passing over job assignments, ignoring my extensive credentials, providing negative employee reviews that did not follow established CVS policies, paid me lower rates with less benefits, and no raise as retaliation as a Caucasian over 50 years old in favor of indian coworkers resulting in emotional distress, negative financial effects, civil rights violations and having to quit the job. I followed all internal policies and procedures to address these including emails to L arry J. M e rlo, J on at han C. R ob erts. E va B or atto. and Ch ris tine Fitz ge rald to no avail and things only got worse so I left

Older employees feel extra pressure on them even tho they are performing at same rate/speed of employees half their age. Comments start about gray hair/ retirement/ you look tired. If you visit random stores all over the city you rarely see employees over 40

I have gone through the process of telephone interviews, first and second in person interviews for managerial positions for CVS. The end result has been we have someone better suited for this position. I have over 28 years as a pharmacy manager and over 40 years in retail. The only thing I can figure is they are looking for younger and cheaper employees.

My qualifications for the pharmacy technician training program ( i.e., no pharmacy experience required) was/is a B.S. degree in Biology, a pharmacy technician vocational education certificate, and national certification with the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (still current). I had two interviews with CVS pharmacy managers and was not offered employment regardless of my flexible availability. I then completed the CVS customer service course which was a joint project between CVS and the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and still was not offered any type of employment. I finally gave up trying to find a pharmacy tech job with CVS and the other retail chains and was eventually hired by Pearson Vue as a test administrator in a secure, computer-based testing facility. There is no doubt in my mind that my lack of success in being hired as a pharmacy technician trainee is a result of age discrimination. I am currently employed in a city government position assisting seniors in searching and applying for unsubsidized employment as I am well qualified for that type of position too.

I worked at CVS as a pharmacy technician. Both the pharmacist and lead technician would frequently berate me in front of customers and staff. This was not done to my younger coworkers.

It all depends on the management of each store & those above the manager. The older the manager the more common sense, level headedness and reasonableness they have. Generally, those qualities decrease commensurately as their age decreases (starting with age 50 & under). They do not know how to treat an older worker & sometimes will try things to get rid of them or not promote them. At present I have a very good manager (age 59). He hired me 13 years ago, & then I got shifted around to other stores & under different managerial experiences, finally to return to his store. Even he has had to put up over past years with those above him who were younger, rude, impractical, & unreasonable. I have somewhat concluded that maybe retail management is not that great. I believe it also reflects the times we are in now as a nation, too, & the way the government regulates businesses.

Workload requires managers to work far above 45 hours scheduled. Fired an older well-paid manager without hearing, six months after an ethics line phone call raised an issue that was apparently not a major issue for six months.

Testimonials:

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
