    Pros

    Okay salary, in and around the public, and 20% Employee discount.

    Cons

    Too many hours, unfair bonuses, hard to advance (seems political)and no payroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more payroll and support to your management staff. they are the ones that work their butts off and care the most.

    Pros

    The people you work with, the customers, SHARECARE is helpful, some benefits are helpful. Great for part time work or a side job.

    Cons

    Pay; expensive benefits out of pay check, given more job titles with a lesser pay is ridiculous. Kiss upper management in order to get your way. Vacation is only renewed each year not by pay period. hard to move up at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay you assocaites better for all there hard work,

    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Their is cross training within the pharmacy which is great for growth within the company. It is a fast paced environment with lots to learn with an equal amount of work.

    Cons

    If the pharmacy does not meet the goals, district managers become very pushy in order to meet vaccination goals. It can be become very stressful as customers are not always compliant and as some goals just can not be met all the time..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting staff in order to meet goals is different then pushing them to meet goals since all goals can not always be met.

    Former Employee - Pharmacy Cashier in Clayton, NC (US)

    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Rite-Aid, is great place to work for, employees are great to be around. Structured management, will willingness to work for others and being able to learn from one another. Great in helping young employees learn how to develop management and communication skills and over all work ethic for future endeavors and jobs.

    Cons

    Rite-Aid is a great establishment to work for, but they pay is substantially low and not up to par with their fellow competitors. Another con is not having enough hours to give to employees to work. Management can be great at times but better communication is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider offering more work hours to employees and possible higher wages. More flexibility with work-life, maintaining a balance.

    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Feeling like your a team and being able to train your team to work well together and there is a lot of recognition.

    Cons

    Training for promotion. Very few hours are given for the workload needed. And the stress of needing more help toeet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your management team promote more instead of keeping them grounded because your comfortable

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, corporate discounts (on phone plans, amusements parks, etc.), and hours, flexible when needed. Plenty of room to transfer and grow within the company, which they have improved its accessibility tremendously in the past year or two. Great company discount, comprehensive training.

    Cons

    The pay overall leaves much to be desired, not much room for raises or bonuses no matter how hard or long you work. Depends on quality of store management.
