    Pros

    Making your own schedule .never seeing D.M. Good employees.

    Cons

    Not enough payroll hours. D.M never around. Hr does not have your back. Payroll always an issue. Not enough workers due to payroll hrs all work to be done by managers. Horrible managers. Call outs excessive forcing store manager to work doubles etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the people that are working for you. Allow the manager to actually manage instead of being a cashier.or truck pusher

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fairly easy to pick up extra hours

    Cons

    Tons of pressure to override DUR without any legitimate time to consider them. Lots of pressure to perform and increase store volume as well as cut tech hours etc. Terrible career outlook: I've seen multiple people let go of after working over 10 years with the company simply because they were able to replace the position with cheaper new labor. Not a place to try and work long term.

    Pros

    I think it's a pretty reputable pharmacy and they have good training programs.

    Cons

    I personally didn't find any cons, but I didn't want to go to school to be a pharmacist, so I cut my experience there short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My management was pretty good, I do think pharmacy technicians could be paid a little more considering the type of work they perform.
