    Everything was going great until I hit the glass ceiling. I'm tired of bumping my head.

    Current Employee - Department Supervisor in Camp Hill, PA

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Full-time entry level corporate positions are plentiful and for the most part, the starting wages are a little higher than average. In my situation, I have an excellent work-life balance. My immediate supervisor places great importance on family and life outside of work.

    Cons

    Most departments are not as positive and "happy" as mine. Some influential departments have an old-guard in place that fight change at every chance. It's easy to get hired and promotion early is not too difficult if you are willing to work hard but don't plan on getting too high up the ladder. Once you are seen as a great asset, your upward movement may grind to a halt. Mine has.

    Store Manager Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Rite Aid.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my college's career website. It was a few weeks before I was first contacted for a phone interview by the HR representative. The conversation was casual but informative. It was a whole two months later before I was called in for an in-person interview. Standard STAR format questions. A couple of weeks later, I interviewed with the Regional VP. He asked personality-based questions. Nothing out of the ordinary.
