    Stop cutting hours and expecting workers to do the same amount of work with less people.

    Pros

    The job is okay for a first job and provides you with good customer service skills.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for all the things you have to do, the hours ARE TERRIBLE and the way the company is ran is just horrible. Rite Aid does not care about their employee's at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please up the hours.

    Pros

    They seem to have a solid grasp of what they want this company to look like in the new healthcare system. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Difficulty in implementing the ideas they state for the company on the store level. Any dissent or new ideas are squashed. If you can't perform your job how they want it all falls on you, no internal review of feasibility of programs or initatives. Large gap between upper management and store employees.

    Advice to Management

    Push more senior leaders to actually work shifts in the stores to better understand the associate experience.

    Pros

    Agreeable corporate. Good managers. Management was understanding about being late and calling off. I still have friendly relationships with both my former managers.

    Cons

    Not very generous pay. 24 hour store - difficult to take time off. Monthly training courses that were repetitive and boring. Customers are not always friendly. Corporate tended to hire people from outside the company rather than promoting internally.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do more to encourage good work ethic and doing one's job right. Although it was just a part-time cashier position, it was frustrating to see coworkers who had no intention of putting effort in or caring about helping customers.
