    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    its a job, you can get a check, no raise but a check

    Cons

    To much work thrown into a day, no real idea by corporate what the daily job entails, Disconnect from corporate into what actually happens in a day.Unrealistic expectations , daily threats of job loss at the end of every sentence, daily threats of being fired if out of compliance, no reason is good enough. No help, low pay, nasty upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop the threats help the managemnt in the stores, be supporative instead of accusatory, Corporate learn what really happens daily, things look great on paper take teh time to find out ( not in the corporate store where staff is plentiful) how it really will affect work, and talk to the people who have to use your systems, your work flows etc.Remeber the people who work for you are people, not just a body.

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

    Pros

    interaction with customers and associates, decent pay

    Cons

    poor quality of life, poorly trained middle management, lack of appreciation for store level associates as well as a lack of appreciation of store level challenges from both middle and upper management, poor replenishment system and even worse distribution system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start spending money on store staffing rather than endless promotional materials (half of which ends up in the trash), train middle management in interpersonal skills, do time studies for tasks that are rolled out to stores, think new initiatives through so that there aren't myriad revisions required to each, be a little creative instead of following the retail herd (ie. wellness+ and store hours).
