    Former Employee - Cashier in Grove City, OH

    I worked at Discount Drug Mart part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent at flexible scheduling. Job itself was very easy. Some coworkers are east to get along with.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. Pay raises may as well be non-existent. You are not treated as a valued employee, even after working 5 years at the company. Customers will talk down to you and yell and curse at you for things beyond your control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer promotions and pay raises that actually make sense. $0.20/hour increases every year is not acceptable, especially with minimum wage increasing by at least the same amount.

    Current Employee - Third Key Manager in Oberlin, OH

    I have been working at Discount Drug Mart full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Company, Good company to work for, Very flexible schedules, I've met some really nice people, Work can get tough but it's generally not awful.

    Cons

    Raises are extremely minimal, Promotions feel like your doing more work without a real increase in compensation to go with it, upper management pay is very un competitive minimal at best, The hours are not horrible but schedules can sometimes make them seem very bad as manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are looking to advance through this company for the means of money alone, you won't find it here.
