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

    Pros

    My co-workers are the reason I am still there today. We usually all have each others back.

    Cons

    Lazy people. The workflow is too much for one person to handle. There is a specific process that we follow in order for the work to get done. If lazy people pretend like they're working, the rest of the staff will suffer
    The PAY! I have been working here 7 years now. I have only gotten $1.00+ raise. :(~. You work so hard and loyal. I feel like I don't get paid enough for all the effort I put into this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a way to manage your staff. Be firm about displining your staff. But do respect your staff. There is a certain way you can talk to people respectfully. Don't be so lenient. When you be too nice, they will step all over you and make you and the rest of the staff suffer!
