I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (less than an year)

Pros

the hours are good, no late nights

Cons

the company claims that it encourages its employees, this is far from the truth. the company currently has a culture to hire from outside the company. the company does not promote talent that it has. everything from the corporate representatives down to its assistant managers. just recently I tried applying to seven full time positions everything from store manager to assistant manager. I have over twenty years of experience in store management. I currently hold a full time position as a shift supervisor making $9 an hour. the company just hired an assistant manager at another location that I applied for several months ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

look at the talent you have. hiring some one in a management position costs more money in training expenses than a cashier or lower management position. this is why you are failing as a comp[any.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Steady salary and benefits but no loyalty or job security!

    Cons

    Felt like I was a little chinaman working for "Kathy Lee Gifford" in a sweat shop! Way to many hours, like 60-70 a week just to maintain overall store conditioning. The company needs tone invest more in their associate/stores than anything else at this point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above!!!
