    If you do not have family...this is the job for you.

    "Supervisor" (This Was the Title) (Current Employee)

    ProsIt gives you a great title.

    ConsDue to under staffing, every customer becomes a burden not an asset (they take away time to work getting done. In other words, the boss multitasks you so much that you view the customer as an interruption. This is just crazy. This creates a twisted...'customer is a burden' culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice....You must heal yourselves. A twisted culture is what you have. I will say that you should not blame subordinates whom are slower in getting your little tasks done because they were trying to help customers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prospharmacy is great very fast moving.

    Consstore was mess could not find what i was looking for.working conditions were not good very unfair of late.

    Advice to Senior Managementget new ones,ones that do not treat employee like dogs or change schedules after they have been up a week. call them at home and say i changed your schedule. give you more woke then you can do with a cashier and yourself.

    Store manager ..not good experience at all. Dm not there to assist ever..Noone is a team .You stand alone.

    Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Shift supervisor

    Shift Supervisor (Current Employee)

    ProsCo workers, discount, paid holidays, upper management doesn't care if employees are unhappy, and that's just about it

    ConsThey pay you less than their cashiers for you to have a key to the building, handle their money, and run the store. HORRIBLE COMPANY!

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees and not just your bonus. Compliment the store on the good things not just what you don't like. Eckerd offered a lot more to associates, rite aid is going down fast, word gets out that the work environment is horrible.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Undercompensated/Overworked

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsI was fortunate to have a strong team that made day to day operations bearable, but whoa to those not in a store run by capable management.

    ConsUpper management is determined to turn a profit at whatever costs. Primarily by running staffs that are just enough to get by. Very little support from above, and even less compassion for the employees that do everything they can to keep their individual store afloat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell to Wal Mart!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor Management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiscount of twenty percent is nice

    ConsThe Assistant Manager at my store thought she ran the entire company. And she was insane. Literally bullying everyone in the store to the point where everyone is looking for another job. Higher management is aware, but no one seems to be diong any thing about it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
