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

Pros

People were friendly, caring and always looked out for you. Flexible with schedule.

Cons

Pay wasn't very good, was there for 5 years and my pay increase barely went up. Break was a little difficult, I worked in Pharmacy so that was a problem.

Advice to Management

To try to increase the pay. I was in the pharmacy techinican position and the pay lacked. It's not far, there were people who worked in the front end that got paid more than Pharmacy Techs, and that wasn't at all fair.

    Pros

    There are a handful of really nice pharmacists who are great at what they do and are wonderful to their technicians, which makes the job a little more bearable.

    Cons

    They pay their technicians horribly and expect a ton from them. They will offer raises and time off and will not follow through, or will find a way to mess up your hours and pay. There is little to no incentive to work hard and create high metrics and as a result there is a high turnover for technicians. Technicians who work 11 or 12 hour shifts have been told they are not allowed to have a small snack or water in the pharmacy. Corporate rarely listens to the complaints of its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Have some sympathy and consideration before implementing new rules. Pay your employees as if they mean something to you.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good group of employees under me at each of the 5 stores I was assigned to, with a few exceptions.

    Cons

    They will fire you quickly.

    Advice to Management

    There is talk of Rite Aid being good to the employees, but it is just talk. In reality you demand more and more for the same or less pay and give less time to do it. Districts think it is possible just because someone thought it is a good idea and a good way to save money. Result is unsatisfied employees who are always behind and being pushed to do more. When it's time for the blame game, its always the managers, so they try to push that onto others and the blame game begins. Whole stores get fired at times as a result. Very unpleasant place to work. Very cheap towards employees and benefits.
