I worked at Rite Aid full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Many available hrs, good people, good experience, fun, flexible hrs, worked well with my school schedule, appreciated good/hard work.

Cons

On your feet a lot, slow raises, always busy, some grumpy workers (but where are there not?), short breaks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Full one-hour lunch breaks and increased employee discounts would make employees happier.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gained experience in the management aspect.
    I had an amazing Store Manager who helped me grow and showed me everything I needed to know to succeed.
    The long term sales associates there were amazing and probably one of the reason I stayed for a while.
    Discount for employees is 20% off on regular price items. Not bad, I guess.

    Cons

    Little help and arrogance from District Manager.
    The clientele was pretty bad due to the store location.
    Pay sucked for Sales Associates, even shift supervisors.
    Didn't get a store promotion because of the lack of confidence of my District Manager and his sympathy towards older people who according to him had more experience.
    I managed a 24 hour store and it was non-stop all day.
    Lots of tasks to get done with very little time and the amount of plan-o-grams sent all the time where nonsense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved in how your District Manager run their stores, mine wasn't helpful and extremely arrogant.

    Pros

    Company is adding more clinical services to expand the pharmacist's role.

    Cons

    Company cut payroll so more work is expected with less tech help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide tech training so pharmacists can focus on the clinical needs of their customers.
