    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation offered after 1 year of employment.
    Flexible hours.

    Good hours if you earn it. (It's not favoritism, it's rewarding hard work)

    Advancement opportunities available to cashiers and shift supervisors.

    If you like the general public, retail pharmacy is a great place to be.

    20% discount, frequent 30% days, impressive weekly sales you may not realize if you don't work there.

    Cons

    Corporate controls payroll based on many factors so most of the time there isn't enough payroll hours

    Advancement is tougher for assistants and store managers. As there are FAR less opportunities.

    Finding good help feels impossible sometimes. Hiring people then they aren't reliable hurts everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe pay cashiers and shift supervisors more to make the job more desirable to GOOD prospects.

    Increase employee discount (slightly) above what customers get.

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are long but able to have 7 out of 14 days off - especially enjoying the 3 day weekend every other week.

    Cons

    it's hard to manage so many tasks with limited tech hours. Not to mention it's hard to replace incompetent tech who just adds more work to your day.

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

    Pros

    Freedom to work in the store and out in the community. Opportunities to be creative in marketing ideas.

    Cons

    Training is subpar. You have to be motivated to educate yourself. It's a difficult position as far as support and fitting into the store. Front end managers want to use you for truck, stock, planos while pharmacist want to use you as a tech. Associates don't see you doing there type of work so don't see any value in the position. There currently isn't any way to move up in the company within the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My Advice is to read the pros and cons.

    Terrible hours but that is retail for you. And the pay was chump change.

    The man behind the desk needs to work front lines before setting policy.

    Pros

    At my local Rite Aid, manager was very obliging of hours and able to work around my school schedule. Good part-time work while attending school.

    Typical part-time, minimum wage job: no real benefits, no real advancement possibilities.
