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

Pros

Day goes by fast, always too much to do.

Cons

Not really sure what they mean by being a manager, don't really manage anything but the warehouse. All I do all day is move freight from front to back. Hold cashiers accountable, do we really need to run up front every minute to override a return or void? Read the report and identify patterns, way to time consuming for managers who are too busy breaking down pallets of freight by themselves.

Advice to Management

Managers need more training time. Playing catch up since day 1.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I had working under me were a great team

    Cons

    I was forced to retire due to the fact that it seems as RA is trying to get rid of all the older Brook's employees. My store was the lowest in payroll hours available and the dm sent someone to help clean up the backroom, which really wasn't that bad. I did not ask for help but he wrote me up because he sent help. They are going around trying to eliminate for any reason the older managers.
    We did not run our stores, we were micromanaged. I also never got any kind of bonus because the guidelines were too high for a low volume store.

    Advice to Management

    Let the store managers run their store they know what sells and what the customers want
