    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent hours. They work to accommodate your life outside of work. Even with this risky business, they are concerned for safety.

    Cons

    Limited development. As in you have to fight to even be noticed and harder to get training beyond your position.

    Advice to Management

    Develop your people before they leave for the many much greener pastures out there.

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is a fun place to work for and they empower you to make decisions to keep the customers happy, which is what it's all about . The pay is fair for managers, the hours are also fair.

    Cons

    The sales associates and RX techs hourly rate is not realistic for all they are expected to know and the performance required. So as a manager you have to jump threw hoops of fire for your staff to keep them loyal to you and their job, or love training new associates.

    Advice to Management

    Stay positive

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time

    Pros

    The team you work with is very kind and willing to help with anything. The stores I have worked at are very clean and on time with everything.

    Cons

    Can't think of anything because I haven't had any problems at all. Everything is good expecially if you put your part.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it's not bad to be a little more demanding on specific employees if you see that they do less than others or complain about others but do the things they complain about.

    Pros

    The only good reason to work at Rite Aid is he fact that it is a nationally know corporation. It has a big name. That's it.

    Cons

    The low-mid level management are not good. They are, for the most part, unprofessional and uninterested. They need to step up their game!

    Advice to Management

    Lower level management needs to be more professional, proactive and responsive. They seem unengaged and disinterested in the employees.
