    Pros

    The workers are normally friendly and more the willing to help you with a work problem. The discount is pretty good since it's on top of the discounts the store already offers.

    Cons

    The management can be disrespectful at time. The workers are better at training than the managers.

    Advice to Management

    There is right way to talk to people firmly that is not disrespectful.

    Pros

    You're forced to teach and motivate yourself which I guess is good. You get good first hand practice on how to deal with craziness in a calm way.

    Cons

    No support, terrible management, terrible pay. No lunch break, standing all day even when there are no customers and no prescriptions to fill. Did I mention, no lunch breaks?

    The benefits for working at Rite Aid include good work-life balance, and a good environment for learning and future development.

    I cannot really think of a con. I was a student for the most part of my employment and everyone was very understanding and willing to work with my schedule. Very pleased with my experience.

    Advice to Management

    worked well with schedule specially around finals.
