    Pros

    Making an earnest effort towards positive change.

    Cons

    Too many tasks with not enough time, recipe for poor customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Pare down programs to few important tasks. Too many varied tasks = disengaged employees.

    Pros

    Pay is good. One can meet there Max pay in about 2 years or so and it's about 16 bucks an hour I believe maybe more. Ill find out soon. Been there for almost a year and I'm already got $1.20 raise and benefits are good too.

    Cons

    Just the usual stuff that comes with working in retail. Annoying customers . But if you can deal with it I recommend starting here at rite aid.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing yet.....

    Pros

    The scheduling here is very flexible, and if hired you always receive a fairly good amount of hours. There is also ample room for you to climb the ladder and get promoted if you show interest and are able to handle the work load.

    Cons

    The customers are sometimes rude and disrespectful and swear they know more about your job procedures and policies than you. There are also times when there are not enough employees on schedule and it can become kind of hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees about changes that could be made to keep things running smoothly, and they should also have store meetings so issues and conflicts could be heard out and hopefully resolved.

    Pros

    My store, we're very close, so teamwork and friendships are flourishing. I'm at a busy store, so learning about medications and the uses will benefit me in nursing school.

    Cons

    Open every single day of the year. Making the same stores stay open on holidays and not rotating staff at open stores in the district.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    1. Being able to have a set schedule, working Monday-Friday.
    2. Holidays offs
    3. Schedule flexibility depending on your DM and PDM, examples: Doctor appointments, Children's events, personal matters
    4. Work as a Team with other DMAs in your Region, everyone is very helpful and teaches each other.

    Cons

    1. No sick leave for Admins
    2. VERY low pay
    3. No career path or stepping stones to move up into other positions within the organization
    4. There is no structure of expectations within the Region on reports for DMs and PDMs, hard to cover for other Admins if everyone does things different
    5. Workload is based on skill level and willingness to be a "DO More" if you are a do little than you are kept at that level while others have A LOT more work.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone doesn't have a MBA or a PHARM D at the end of their name does not mean they are not qualified to do the job. There is A LOT of great talent out there, just ask!

    Pros

    They help you obtain your certification while you work.
    some opportunities for advancement.
    Certification earned can be used at any pharmacy in the state

    Cons

    More opportunities for advancement in front end of store, not so much in pharmacy
    Upper management can hold unobtainable goals and reprimand if not accomplished
