    I worked at Rite Aid full-time

    Pros

    employee discount, easy to run registers

    Cons

    poor management that turns over a lot, they want to have very few employees working at one time so you constantly have to run back and forth between stocking shelves or doing planograms or taking interviewing, while also running the register and answering the phone.

    Advice to Management

    Have one person run the register and answer the phone at all times while another employee does the other jobs around the store.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits ok but pressure is intense and very little help is put into the stores

    Cons

    Managers are all fired in their 50s for trivial reasons-so they can bring in cheaper help

    Advice to Management

    treat others how you want to be treated

    Pros

    None.....the insurance is horrible & wayyy to expensive , no SICK days, no vacation until a year.....this company doesn't care about their employees.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, they are liars & extremely unethical.....DON'T care about the
    Employees & let store managers get away with extremely unethical behavior

    Advice to Management

    Be ethical. Treat people fair. Realize this company is failing because of your store managers & upper management.

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

    Pros

    Hours if you get any and show you work hard.

    Cons

    Training sucks. Have to learn everything on your own.
    Make sure you get the right pay and ask all the time.
    Management sucks. Could be way better at the store I worked.

    Advice to Management

    Train employees better.

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

    Pros

    The people that whole here are mostly kind. The majority of our customers are the regulars and I consider some of them friends

    Cons

    The main issue at my store is that the manager and assistant manager don't care what one of my fellow co-workers do. That co-worker shows up 15 minutes late almost every single day, does little to no work, and the managers never say anything. Ialways show up 10 minutes early. One time i show up exactly on time and I'm told I need to show up earlier. Also the employee that never does anything and is always late got employee of the quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. Is someone isn't doing what they should be doing tell them. Don't ignore the issues and pretend they don't exist.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    No pros I can think of that set Rite Aid apart from other pharmacies ... find another pharmacy if at all possible

    Cons

    Management and corporate treat employees as a number and place impossible expectations on them. Don't support their employees to help contribute to the success of the business and no constructive criticism. Put employees down constantly and never given any compliments on what was done well. Shared QA in the pharmacy that made me nervous to loose my license ... checking scripts from other stores without even knowing the patient or seeing the actual prescription. Highly don't recommend this company. On top of that, was made to come to work even in wake of a family emergency and when deathly ill.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees and their job satisfaction are directly proportional to the success of your business. By constantly setting unrealistic expectations and not giving any support in achieving them, putting your employees down, and close to harassing them, it sets very low morale and also opens a window for the pharmacy staff to make mistakes. Constructive criticism is always welcomed, but management and corporate have ruined a place I used to be proud to work for and used to love.

    Pros

    Clean store and nice customers

    Cons

    Manager was looking for a Best Friend to listen to her sexual escapades. VERY unethical & unprofessional! A TOTAL BULLY who retaliated against those who opposed her.

    Advice to Management

    Stay professional, be kind to your employees!!!!

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

    Pros

    this review is of how Rite Aid handled my separation of employment. There are no pros

    Cons

    Rite Aid lied to the state and told them that they offered me a transfer and that I declined it. I was laughed at by my boss when I requested a transfer and told that no transfer would be available to me. I quit because I was not safe working at that location.

    Advice to Management

    Go to hell.

    Pros

    Not much. The discount was good on rite aid products.

    Cons

    I started working and a manager was giving me a tour of the store. He told me, we don't have any cameras in the store. I then asked how does the security person catch the thieves. He said he looks up at these domes and watches people. There are cameras in these domes. Another manager can't remember a thing you tell her. I was being watched for some reason, (kind of funny because I wouldn't steal). I forgot to give the customer change so I had to open the register. The manager came running out out of the back room and yelled what's going on here. I later told him if there was money missing it wasn't me. I believe that's why you came running out. He told me it was a coincidence. Yeah right. This store is also located close to a couple of meth clinics. One never knew if a robbery might occur

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees, creates bad morale
