    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time

    Pros

    Not much to do. Customers like you

    Cons

    Co-workers get mad that they cashier and you just help people. Managers don't respect your job. ..ivev worked at 4 locations and they just want you to cashier. ..which you s shouldn't be doing as a wellness ambassador. Never did outreach like I should have been required to because I'm always I the register because manager makes me. But things could be worse

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize to management and cashiers to respect wellness ambassadors role and let them do what's in their job description.

    Pros

    You get the chance to learn more the longer you stay in the company.
    You work with people of great personality.

    Cons

    Its a mediocre job, or maybe im at a mediocre store.
    They rarely gjve promotions and if they do, its not much.
    The supervisors and managers use you to complete their work often.
    You don't get paid enough unless you are a supervisor or manager.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be live training for ALL associates to provide them a higher opportunity to advance in the company.
    For the people that has experience outside of rite aid should be paid more.

    can't think of anything they excel at, good for paying *some* bills I guess

    Cons

    where do I start? very low wages, hours fluctuate a lot! forget about a decent raise, always understaffed. the list goes one

    Advice to Management

    keep up with the 21's century! flyers and wellness tables were valid in the 70's!

    Pros

    Technology always changing... usually for better. They are always trying to improve things for customers and make them better. Management has leeway to do right thing given specific situations.

    Cons

    Poor technician support. Some policies are written corporately and then not enforced on local level. I think there should be a more uniform level of policy implementation.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage management to do right thing while also enforcing policies written at corporate level. It creates too much confusion for customers when store managers in one location do something that other managers in a different store won't.

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

    Pros

    Started at $8.50 an hour, which is higher than most retail places
    The co-workers are usually friendly

    Cons

    The nightshift goes by so slow!
    Customers can be rude
    Shifts constantly change. You might work 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. one day, then 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. the next or 1 p.m.-9 p.m.
    Jobs vary. You switch between cashier, stocker and pharmacy tech.
    On truck day, your shift starts at 4 a.m.

    Advice to Management

    A little stability would be appreciated.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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 Management

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