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

Pros

the hours are good, no late nights

Cons

the company claims that it encourages its employees, this is far from the truth. the company currently has a culture to hire from outside the company. the company does not promote talent that it has. everything from the corporate representatives down to its assistant managers. just recently I tried applying to seven full time positions everything from store manager to assistant manager. I have over twenty years of experience in store management. I currently hold a full time position as a shift supervisor making $9 an hour. the company just hired an assistant manager at another location that I applied for several months ago.

Advice to Management

look at the talent you have. hiring some one in a management position costs more money in training expenses than a cashier or lower management position. this is why you are failing as a comp[any.

    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are some of the best people I've worked with

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed, I would be running the entire front end of the store practically alone.
    Minimum wage, bad hours, work every holiday

    Advice to Management

    Care and treat your employees with respect. Give a higher wage, hire more people
