I worked at Rite Aid part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I really liked the strong corporate structure of Rite-Aid. This gave me great confidence. Working at the front counter was completely stress free. A 100 year old cripple could be a manager at Rite-Aid. I say this with good intentions.

Cons

I had this job from early high school through college. However there never once was an opportunity for advancement. It was like being trapped in a fish bowl for 20-28 hours a week. The computer system was excellent at training and POS. However the shiny POS did not allow email access, HR website, check stubs, and everything else you would expect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Rite Aid as an intern

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to help the public thru wellness events and initiatives toward increased patient counseling. Also, the computer system is easy to maneuver thru. Having worked at other chain pharmacies, it is definitely a much more straightforward computer system than what else is out there. You feel very connected to the entire corporation because you are constantly in contact with upper management, not just store level management. Really feels like a team.

    Cons

    Same cons as any community pharmacy: long lines, constant doctor calls, insurance calls, have to help technicians, counsel patients...all at the same time! Nothing of note that particularly pertains to Rite Aid, however
