    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    I really enjoy the interaction with the customers! I really like my co-workers and feel that everybody from employees to the customers are just so friendly! I like the fact that I get to promote health and well-being. From working on an RX to the sales, to the calling of customers to say that it is ready to be picked up, feel that I am promoting them live well and healthfully! I am helping their well-being! I like the environment and all the products that they offer. I like the fact that there is flexibility in scheduling and in the fact that it may be possible to transfer from store to store. Sometimes, I work a first and sometimes a second. Sometimes, it is nice to have a day off in the middle of the week.

    Cons

    The pay per hour definitely is a con. Not sure how they think that people can live for an extended period of time on what they pay! Being a pharmacy cashier/ tech is no easy task!! I want to see how many other people can work the drive through, answer the phone, make sales at the register, do dropoffs, input prescriptions, answer more phone calls, count medications, put the medications away, enter orders, and the tasks go on and on!! It is challenging!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, we need better pay and no cut in hours! How do you expect to keep people. I enjoy it ! It is a challenge I like, but to pay little and then cut hours on top of that!! I know I cannot do two jobs either. 1. Too stressful on myself 2.) The changes from day to day and week to week of schedules. In a way I like this flexibility ~having some mornings open, as well as evenings and most weekends. How can we even get another job with this though?
