    CVS Health values self-starters and independent thinkers. Any transitioning veteran can and will succeed here if you continue to stress your accountability and thoroughness. The lingo is different and the uniform is different. But the sense of mission is familiar. It’s clear, understandable and relatable. That clarity of mission provides a similar sense of duty. Bring your ‘A’ game, though. We do run hard in order to ensure we help our patients on their path to better health.

    Coming from the military, I was used to being able to have as much responsibility and influence as I was willing to reach out and grab and prove myself capable of having. CVS Health has provided that same opportunity. I never feel limited or constrained here; there’s always more I can reach out and grab to take on and get involved in. The military drove me to never settle for the easy way out and always work for things to be done the right way. CVS Health has an environment where that’s still encouraged.
