The company will hold a one day hiring event on Friday, Sept. 24 as they look to fill full-time, part-time and temporary positions, CVS Health said in a statement.
The hiring event is being held to prepare for the upcoming flu season along with an increased demand in COVID-19 vaccines and testing, the company said.
"Every flu season we need additional team members," said Neela Montgomery, Executive Vice President, CVS Health and President, CVS Pharmacy, "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."
