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

    Pros

    Great environment, employees really bong and care for each other inside and outside of the store. If the store is constantly busy earning more hours is nothing.

    Cons

    Pay was very poor, even if state certified compared to a lot of other pharmacies. Very strict company but rules were very reasonable, nothing over the top.

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

    Pros

    Most of the management is easy going and laid back , building relationships with customers and patients over a period of time is rewarding in a sense.

    Cons

    I started with the company in 2014 at a pay of $8.50 an hour ( working as a pharmacy tech ) in 2017 I left the company with a pay of $8.90 an hour ( as a cashier) the only raise that I was given was through the state because minimum wage increased. Even joining the union there still was never a pay increase. Depending on the location working nights isn't very safe, lack of communication and recognition through the company is discouraging. Benefits are for full-time and management. advancing in the company is near impossible.

    Advice to Management

    In order to decrease your turn over rate, I would advise to give employees a decent wage and regular raises. I would also recommend giving your employees to opportunity to advance in your company. It's discouraging to those who have given more than they have gotten to be over looked by upper management. You could also try closing early on the holidays, instead of staying open late.r people want to spend time with their families, if corporate employee's are able too why can't the others?

    Love my job! The training was very good! The flexibility is amazing. Been with Rite aid for several years.

    Cons

    There really is no downfalls to working here besides not being able to move up in the company without a degree in pharmacy.(I work in pharmacy not front end)

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

    Pros

    The Discount (Well not so much. Everything was overpriced so it evened out.) The other employees were friendly and easy to get along with. It was more Corporate vs Local Entity.

    Cons

    As a Part Time tech at the location in which I worked, we were constantly under staffed. As a matter of fact I constantly struggled to get hours. One week I would get 30 hours the next week barely got 10. Not a single bit of consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Make conditions and schedules better for Part Time employees. Don’t refer to us as numbers, but as individuals.
