CVS Health

Sales Support Intern

June - August 2017 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

There was a lot of variety in the types of jobs required so it provided exposure to several different aspects of the company.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship had a little more work to do as sometimes I would be sitting around doing nothing.

Advice

Take the lead on projects as soon as possible.

Summer Associate

June - August 2018 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

The program was well developed. I had a role where I felt I was contributing. They had a large class of interns so there were a lot of opportunities to network with students from other schools. They paid for my housing and my flight to my location. They also had some cool workshops for the interns and a capstone project where you worked on a team with other interns to solve a problem the company gave us.

What I wish was different

The return offer is for a rotational leadership development program that is 4.5 years long. I wish the program were shorter. Other than that I had a good experience.

Advice

Just work hard, be friendly, and take the initiative and you will get a return offer. It is also important to express you interest in the program during the internship. Show that you would actually be willing to come back.

Insurance Underwriting Intern

June - August 2018 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

My favorite parts of the internship program had to be through the networking that went on at Aetna. From hearing the CEO, CFO, and President of the company speak to the entire intern class to connecting with people through the company email and IM system. Everyone was more than willing to sit down and speak with interns about anything.

What I wish was different

I wish the speaking events for different types of interns had been open to everyone.

Advice

One piece of advice I'd give to future Aetna interns is to start networking from Day 1. It took me until about week 5 of 10 to really get that everyone was more than willing to talk with you about anything you want.

IT Summer Associate

June - August 2017 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

My team was friendly and accommodating in bringing me on board, and I was able to work on an interesting set of problems related to application health monitoring and data analysis. The program is quite large in Hartford, meaning that you'll get to interact with the other dozens of interns and form friendships.

What I wish was different

Hartford at times can be a bit slower and less exciting of a city.

Advice

Talk to as many superiors as you can, put time on their calendars and schedule one-on-one meetings.

General Management Intern

June - August 2019 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

I liked my day-to-day with the manager and team I was assigned. Phoenix was a great city to experience and the culture of Aetna there is great. The other associates you will meet are extremely supportive, and Aetna executives are more than willing to speak with interns.

What I wish was different

The overarching program I was in, General Management Summer Associate Program, did not have a lot of structure to it. Program director was a team of one, so lack of transparency with decisions, and very difficult to get feedback.

Advice

It is a great way to get your feet wet if you are interested in corporate health insurance, and the inner-workings of the executive level. Use the time you have in the summer to expand your network as much as possible - there are many networking opportunities

General Management Summer Associate

June - August 2019 • Hartford, CT

What I liked

- The People! They were really so open to meet up with you and support you on your career journey. I had the opportunity to connect with senior leaders whether through organized speaking events, coffee chats, hosted dinner, or even through the nature of my projects for the summer. People on my team were also very willing to help and develop me. My manager, despite her busy schedule, made time to meet with me daily when she was in the office to talk about the progress of my work and answer the questions I had. - The intern program. It was great to be in a big cohort of interns where through our discussions we got to learn about the different departments and teams of Aetna to get a better glimpse of how it all worked. There were some interesting social events. It was also nice to co-mingle with other intern programs (finance, HR, underwriting, actuarial). We got to work cross-sectionally on a capstone project which added variety to our portfolio of work projects. I also really enjoyed volunteering with some of the interns through various community engagement events. -The Work. I really enjoyed how I got to do "real" work. I got to see how my research and recommendations made an impact on the operations of the company. It left me a good sense of accomplishment. I also think I really lucked out with my manager who helped give me projects that utilized some of my strengths and gave really interesting projects.

What I wish was different

I wish we had the option to highlight what team we were interested in working in. It seemed that we were randomly assigned to a team. People's experiences varied by what team they were placed in. I was placed into Network Discounts which was made interesting because of the people in my team really helped challenge me and learn about the system. I would have been nice to do something where I could utilize more of my public health knowledge. I also recommend that the company counts work performance as a bigger factor in the return offer decision rather than interviews since the manager that the interns work with all summer long know the intern's potential better than someone unrelated to the work.

Advice

- People are really open to networking, so take advantage of it and try to get to know other people's career stories and advice. - Connecticut is a great location to travel the east coast - Insurance is a difficult concept to grasp, and people understand that. So don't be afraid to ask questions. People are really receptive.

The only thing I don't like amour working at a retail pharmacy is the inconsistency and looking hours. I work different shifts on different days. I can open at 8 or close at 9 it just depends.

Advice

As a pharmacy technician working at CVS can be stressful but also rewarding. I work in a fast paced environment promoting efficiency and multitasking. There are so many things I'm exposed to as far as dealing with customers, problem solving, and innovation.
