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

Pros

During my time at Rite Aid, I have advanced through the ranks fairly quickly. I went from a part time cashier on up to a Store Manager in 5 years. Keep in mind during those five years I graduated high school, and college with my bachelors. So it was a rough five years, but the potential was found in me and they decided to help me on my career path.

Good pay, depending on your experience. I went into this with no experience whatsoever, I was actually 16 when I started. Easy work if you like customer interaction as well as tasks such as merchandising. Little supervision from DM, visits every few weeks. Main communication channels are e-mail and texting depending on the DM.

Cons

The major cons, which keeps me from thinking of this job as a potential career is the weekend and holiday work. Management is expected to work at least one weekend day, one night and holidays. This includes Christmas, Easter, etc.

Hours can be rough, trucks sometimes come prior to 6am, days can be up to 16 hours long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Close on holidays and engage in profit sharing with store management.

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot of work at the register and customer interaction since your job is primarily to face the customers when they come to pick up their drugs. The pharmacists and pharmacy technicians work quietly in the back.

    Cons

    There is not much opportunity learn other skills related to pharmacy because you are just busy with customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give opportunities for clerks to be trained

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, Opportunity to grow if you apply yourself. Good pay for management. Loved meeting new people and making lifetime customers. Worked with some really good people.

    Cons

    Only hire part time if not management. Minimum wage for non-management. Hard to keep employees due to only hiring part time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect everyone to memorize all the numbers. That is what reports are for. Look at the results and not so hard at how they are achieved as long as with in guidelines.
