    Retail management grind

    Store Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsCompany will recognize hard work and promote accordingly. It's hard, physical work (as is retail store management in low-volume stores) but if you're up for the task, it could be for you. They also place a heavy value on customer service (and really mean it), so despite feeling behind in the retail pharmacy chain competition, it would appear as though company is gaining its footing.

    Conslow pay, long hours, longer path to promotion (have to run larger stores with more volume before being considered for district/regional leadership).

    .
