Very Political, District Managers think they are the Supreme Being.

I worked at Rite Aid full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good group of employees under me at each of the 5 stores I was assigned to, with a few exceptions.

Cons

They will fire you quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is talk of Rite Aid being good to the employees, but it is just talk. In reality you demand more and more for the same or less pay and give less time to do it. Districts think it is possible just because someone thought it is a good idea and a good way to save money. Result is unsatisfied employees who are always behind and being pushed to do more. When it's time for the blame game, its always the managers, so they try to push that onto others and the blame game begins. Whole stores get fired at times as a result. Very unpleasant place to work. Very cheap towards employees and benefits.

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The stores have a large amount of freedom, at least in the district I currently work, the pay is fairly decent for managers, and it requires very little experience

    Cons

    The pay for non-manager store workers, including assistants and shits is abysmal, I would not work in right aid in a non-management position,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities to move up for management, and store workers, as well as a possible pipeline to move to cooperate for highly experienced workers with degrees.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great sales. Great place to shop. Pharmacy is great

    Cons

    Not enough help to get the work load done. Poor upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have a better plan than just cutting payroll and not helping stores out. Waiting until there is a problem is not smart business. Managers need the time to manage and assist customers, not clean shelves. Your losing more $ by not having the product on the shelf to sell!!!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
