    challenging

    Store Manager (Current Employee) Virginia Beach, VA

    Prosgain lots of knowledge through ever changing days. My immediate supervisor is respectful and extreamly fair, I enjoy my work

    Consas with most retail,payroll is always a concern, sometimes communication could be better, in talking with people who work the same industry it seems our pay is a little low

    not very stimulating or exciting.

    Pharmacist (Current Employee) Virginia Beach, VA

    Prosflexible schedule, overtime available...most of the time.

    Cons15 minutes to fill an RX (fast food philosophy). Culture is cold, anonymous, distant, no community feel.

    Advice to Senior Managementneed to feel like were a team, maybe a yearly company pick nick for employees or inner store sports competitions.

    Prior to rite aid buy out was wonderful

    Store Manager (Former Employee) Virginia Beach, VA

    Prosstore team, family environment, customer interactions these things made up for a whole lot of bad

    Conslow pay, micromanaged from senior level who either forgot about the people who run their business or have never actually worked at store level. Poor communication on new programs, low pay compared to industry, aside from immediate supervisor never recognition for good performance, lots and lots to do, no tools nor payroll to ensure execution of plans

    Advice to Senior Managementcommunication, recognize that many associates who work for you actually would like to see the company succeed, the way to do this is not to belittle, give constant criticism, stop taking away benefits, show a little concern for those who bust their butts day after day to take care of your company! And mostly lets not forget customers, allow stores to deliver the excellent service you demand them to give, not another hat they must wear in hopes they don't all come tumbling down.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    pretty easy job

    Cashier (Former Employee) Virginia Beach, VA

    Proschill atmosphere, management is friendly, open to communication, and cooperative; holiday sales displays are fun, regular customers can make your day.

    Conspay is not that desirable, the stores can be a little boring especially being front end cashier. not bad if you want to coast.

    Advice to Senior Managementi would say to vary the hours that employees work, and have them go switch to different areas of the store to get a full experience.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
