Truthfully, people don't come to CVS for the money - and we know that the School Boards pay more. We think we offer employees a positive work experience that makes up for the difference. If you do the math, a full time worker gets more at the school board per hour but over the course of a year it is about the same. As important, we know that people want to make a difference and CVS is able to offer an environment where you have the whole community as a place to connect people and help them to be the best they can be.
We have opportunities for advancement and we offer training to staff to help you develop your skills over time. More than that, we have fun. Additionally, we recognize our staff for their achievements and we celebrate successes on a regular basis.
