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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and some paid time off after a year. It is often easy to accomplish daily tasks. Rarely gets busy, so it's very stress free.

    Cons

    There is only a small discount on merchandise (20%). There is generally poor leadership and much of the staff lacks a work ethic. The front end is often low on hours, too.

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

    Pros

    Love having the opportunity to help people. Solving insurance billing issues. Flexible schedule. Great pharmacy manager. There is always something new to learn it can be about a drug, computer program, billing, or just something sharing something with your favorite customers/friends

    Cons

    If you don't go to pharmacy school to be a pharmacist as a pharmacy technician there is no room to move up nothing in between you are always learning something new but your paycheck will hardly change.

    Advice to Management

    For upper management I would like for them to know that some people need to be acknowledged some more than others. that's not my case by the way in the contrary it will bother to go home knowing I didn't try to do my best no matter what. but for some it will make a huge difference they will perform better try harder instead of only refer to them when something goes wrong without any knowledge of how much they tried. We are always reminded of how we need to acknowledge customers. Because we know that's a way to show we care.

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

    Pros

    This company helped me grow a lot in my career and learn many different technologies.

    Cons

    Unless you are willing to get out of your comfort zone it is difficult to progress. I became stuck in a position that I could not move out of. I applied for multiple openings in other departments. I left because my skills and career were stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Be a better listener to your employees! They usually know a LOT more than you think they do!

    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.
