Realistic Job Preview

In the RJP, a CVS Health colleague in the job describes what the work is like, what tasks they perform, and the challenges and rewards (the things they like and do not like) of the work.

It also describes the working environment, such as the amount of customer interaction, the pace of the work, and the types of rules and procedures there are.

We hope that it provides you enough information to decide for yourself if you think the job is right for you.

You will not have to answer questions in this section.

Situational Judgment Test

This exercise presents problem situations that a CVS Health colleague could experience on the job.

You are presented with four possible responses you could take if you were in the situation and you must indicate which response you would most likely take – and which response you would least likely take.

Note that this is not a multiple choice question with one correct response. All responses are possible and you must make two selections – your most likely response and your least likely response.

Data Accuracy

In this exercise you will be presented with different tasks related to entering and checking data, such as taking inventory or comparing prescriptions to medicine bottles.

You will enter data correctly or verify that data presented is correct.

Drivers

This exercise asks about the type of work environment that motivates you.

You will be presented with two statements and asked to indicate which statement reflects what you would like more in a job.

While you may see the same statement more than once, you will not see the same pair of statements more than once.

Tell Us Your Story

This exercise asks you about your work history. If you do not have previous work experience, think about school, sports, or other memberships you are in when you answer the questions.

Work Styles

This exercise asks you about your style at work.

Like the “Drivers” section, you will read two statements and choose which statement is more like you. Also, you will choose how much like you it is.

While you may see the same statement more than once, you will not see the same pair of statements more than once.

This is the longest section. Remember, the VJT is not timed. If you feel tired, this might be a good time to take a break!
