    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time

    Pros

    Flexible and great coworkers

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. You deal with medicine and people's lives, deal with doctors, insurance and billing. You count medicine and help customers. It is a very complex job and corporate just keeps finding more nonsense to do while they cut hours and wonder why things are out of control. job is worth at least 15 an hr...a buck less and I'll be earning what high school students do. How is the pay even legal?

    Advice to Management

    Start by looking up Costco and how they treat their employees.
