I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Retail experience was great. Learning to skills as they are introduced. Always meeting fun and interesting new people. Updating the skills I have learned and teaching them to new employee's. Making new friends along the way, with always something to do.Cons
Personal growth I wanted to move out of retail and move to a more "grown up" job. It took me just shy of 12 years to receive an Assistant Manager title which was fun and rewarding. Towards my last few weeks, the manager and I couldn't see eye to eye on anything.Advice to ManagementAdvice
When hiring a new employee, look towards what you could teach them. Are they going to benefit the company? Looking as some of the fresh faces that were hired before I left they had the knowledge, the right attitude, and the energy to grow. I felt like at every chance at a promotion I was showed everything on what to do, but was always being held back.
Tasks I could do blind folded was never taught to anyone else because of fear that something would be "messed up". There never is anything "messed up" that can not be fixed. Trust was there, but lost. You need to trust your employees. So what if it feel's like one step forward, two steps back. They will understand how to correct it the next time around.
Appreciate your employee's. I remember when this past hurricane came to North Jersey, ripped down South Jersey. We were made to come in from sun up to sun down to work without power (which is mainly what we run off of). Not once was there a "thank you" from anyone. You need to send out just a simple email to show that you care about the people who risked their lives to come to work with tree limbs down, flooded streets. These people who work for the company do very much care about the company or they would have never signed on to work with you. Even in the winter when a "State of Emergency" has be declared we were made to "try and make it in" Persons who live 30min. to 60min. away had to come in. When the employees who live within walking distance couldn't even get out of their streets.
It's time to show the real meaning behind "With Us It's Personal" to your employees and not just the customers. If you look at your sales your best customers are your employees, friends of your employees, and most of all the family of your employees.RecommendsNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
