    I worked at Rite Aid full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Large company in mutiple cities. There is a chance for improving your position in the company. Has been in business for a long time.

    Cons

    Moving up the ranks takes a long time. Non managerial positions do not pay much. Healthcare through them is expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Fair salary, decent schedule. Did get a raise, evaluation a little more realistic. Some retailers(pharmacy) seem assert excessive control over employees, this one does not.

    Cons

    Benefits are on the slide. Healthcare benefits dramatically cut this year(as far as i can tell). Upper management(not unusual) seems disconnected from reality. Sales are growing after several down quarters, however not much movement on price of stock(college education fund). This is probably result to Eckerd aquisition with debt, and seems to be getting better(earnings). Overall rating seems to be(listening to techs, cashiers, rph's) very negative(not mine). Employees on both side of aquisition seem very dissatisfied. Eckerd employees think poorly of company, and RA employees don't like the merged company as well. Could be growing pains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work in the stores, get some field experience. I think this will give you a better idea of what is needed to increase sales. All employees seem very unhappy(very few content). Need to a better job with relations. Many feel over worked and under appreciated. Improving your employees work environment will bring more 'smiles', which customers like to see. We have some major advantages over grocery/super stores. Creating a positive relationship with dm's, vp's ect. can really make these advantages obvious to customer by creating positve shopping experience. A lot of work to be done in this area. Be careful who you promote into dm/pdm positions. Bad choices can be catastropic for a district. Lead by example. Integrity, integrity, integrity. You expect from the field(rightfully so), double or triple the expectations upon yourself.
