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

    Pros

    Consistant hours, decent benefits including health, vision and dental insurance and a great store team.

    Cons

    Underpaid, understaffed, and inconsistencies and unrealistic goals set by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    You need to spend money to make money, promote the hardworking people that are already in your stores and be willing to pay them what they deserve. Corporate, give more control to the store managers, they know more about what their stores need to succeed.

    Pros

    The coworkers were great, works well with availability, able to pick up extra hours at other stores.

    Cons

    Full time is considered over 35 hours to keep benefits during a rolling quarter (averaged). Reached pay cap rather quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Remove pay cap and lower full time hour requirement to keep valued employees motivated and continue working for Rite Aid.

    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly group of staff, thorough training, ability to work at multiple stores if needed, ease of scheduling, know what to expect every time you walk through the door.

    Cons

    none- just a tad boring. fine for a part-time job. if you allowed upper mobility within the company it may have inspired me to stay longer.

    Advice to Management

    give raises when needed - only got a .25 raise after being there for two years. be more involved in the community and you will get more business as well, especially since a lot of customers live "in the neighborhood" and frequent the store, but have other choices.


  8. It's Okay

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are amiable and we get along well. They are helpful and friendly to the newcomer.

    Cons

    Some customers can be unreasonable and rude and you still have to put up with it and apologize because Rite Aid values customer service very highly. Pay is minimum wage. There is no set time for lunch, you eat while you work. Sometimes you get interrupted multiple times during one meal.

    Pros

    If you want to learn: the pros are learning other things besides cashier. Maybe sales floor or behind the scenes stuff is as far as you'll go, though.

    Cons

    You get stuck in what you do. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Help advise those who want to advance in the company. It's not always posted and known.
