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

    Pros

    I was under impression of clear training and Corp objectives for this newly created position. Which I embody all necessary characteristics and background.

    Cons

    No clear agenda training or communication between the front and back end Mgmt.. No training provided it was a jump in and burn situation. Addressed issues w/ high Corp Mgmt and received not help. Do to this sloppy Corp structure I ultimately lost my position with out Corp input whom actively recruited me.

    Advice to Management

    Get your management positions in line open up communication and make sure Mgmt are aware of whom they are responsible for.on the right side of the books and who is actually in charge and promises that were made in contractual agreement of employment we're never provided despite many attempts to get needed information equipment supplies and support originally promised.

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are wonderful to work with at my location.

    Cons

    CPhT and Pharmacist profession belittled by constant harassment of customers to get various immunizations and they never provide enough hours to be able to satisfy the metrics they expect. Raises are basically non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your frontline and your business would not experience so many turn-overs and upheavals.

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

    Pros

    Most are willing to work with your schedule, entry level jobs and usual promote from within instead of hiring outside management. Union for shift supervisor and cashier positions in certain stores .

    Cons

    Raises are only given in union stores , with promotions , not performance based. They are very strict with payroll hours and everyone is trained to do most all task in the store. Work load can be overbearing at times. Also half of the stores, mostly eastern United States being sold to Walgreens ; so job security might be an issue .

    Advice to Management

    Fix the logistics with warehouses , and give slightly more payroll , to help with maintaining stores in a pristine condition , since the turnover rate is high which leaves veterans of the job constantly training people.
