CVS Health Corp. (CVS) will be hosting a national hiring event on September 24 in which the pharmacy retailer will seek 25,000 retail and clinical hires, including nurses and pharmacists. CVS is preparing for the coming demand for flu shots, COVID boosters and ongoing demand for COVID vaccines. CVS has administered more than 34 million COVID-19 vaccines. The pharmacy retailer invites candidates to start the virtual hiring process by texting "CVS" to the company's mobile job application feature or going to the company's website. There will be no in-person interviews. CVS raised its minimum wage to $15, effective July 2022, with incremental increases happening until that time. CVS joins a number of companies looking for thousands of workers on a full-time, part-time or seasonal basis, including Amazon.com Inc(AMZN) and FedEx Corp(FDX). CVS stock has run up 25.2% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 18% for the period.
