Talent Acquisition Manager

You’ll be surrounded by many veterans from all eras and a company that values not only our past service but what we can contribute today.

Manager, Information Security Policy Management and Security Awareness
U.S. Military Flight Commander
Being in the military cyber warfare realm requires extensive flexibility from my civilian employer. The flexibility provided by CVS Health has allowed me to seamlessly transition from my military mission to my corporate position.
Senior Director, Enterprise Disaster Recovery
U.S. Air Force, Colonel
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.
Manager, Workforce Initiatives-Military
Recruitment U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel
All of soft skills that I acquired while on active duty with the Army for 26 years transitioned nicely with my new career at CVS Health. Regardless of my technical background in the military, my soft skills gained in the military are making my new career with CVS Health a smoother transition.
Vice President, Workforce Strategies and Chief Diversity Officer
U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant
The military has an ethos that is grounded in purpose-driven service that’s bigger than the induvial. The same holds true for us at CVS Health. You can talk to colleagues in any part of our business and they will be able to articulate our company’s purpose and the role they play to help execute that purpose. Working here provides an opportunity for service members and military spouses to continue to serve -- just in a civvies.
Telecom Intake Manager
U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant
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.
