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

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility with hours, friendly coworkers, fairly relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Lots of call offs, employees are taken advantage of, little to no personal days, very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    If you paid your employees better perhaps you would be able to hold on to the good ones. I worked hard and sacrificed a lot for your company and received so little in return.

    Pros

    This company allows associates to learn and grow through them, as long as you have the work ethics and mindset there is an abundance of opportunity with this company.

    starting pay may not seem desrable.

    Advice to Management

    There are some store operations that needs to be revied, such as basement tracking and return policies that needs to be assesed.

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

    Pros

    Unfortunately I can not think of any pros other than the plenti card

    Cons

    Pharmacy and front are divided and district staff will not help change it. No training program for any associate. Hr allows people to steal in store and allows discrimination. Low pay. Some employees that have been there for 15 years still are under $10 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Look elsewhere for employment, rite aid is a sinking ship.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, benefits, can be Union, will be Walgreens soon

    Cons

    Customers can be difficult in this retail setting and worse depending on area you work in. Drive thru is annoying and be sure to take your breaks although it's busy.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to policies even for management, be a leader with your Customer service and work ethic, fight for your employees as well.

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

    Pros

    No prior experience necessary.

    Cons

    Minimum wage does not justify the quality of physical labor done. SOME managers have poor supervision skills and never lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Promote competent, professional, yet empathetic managers for your stores. Minimum wage instills very little meaning or satisfaction to entry level employees. For the work that is done, the managers should at least be responsible for instilling meaning to each individual under their supervision. It costs the company nothing, but is a skill that can multiply productivity tenfold once learned.

    Pros

    The company has top notch technology. The pay is not too terribly bad but not the best in the industry for sure.

    Cons

    The don't appreciate anything you do for them and there is no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to appreciate the employees better and listen to what they have to say, after all they pay everyone's salary just by opening the doors each day.
