    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Barely any but here goes. 1. The 20% employee discount. 2. Has air conditioning and heat 3. Has lots of different products to choose from. 4. You may or may not have your own locker to choose from. 5. You receive your pay on a prepaid card so you do not have to go to a bank to cash your check.

    Cons

    This will be one of the longest lists of cons ever posted here: 1. Inadequate training. Computer Based Training (or "CBT's) do not teach you the specific skills required for the job. They only enforce corporate policy and basic customer service procedures. You basically have to learn everything on your own. 2. Nasty and foolish customers who often toss the money across the counter when making payments instead of...

    Advice to Management

    Too long of a list but most of all, you need to learn to respect your employees. You need to pay your employees if you want them to bend over backwards for you. Have at least two people work the front end of the store so that multiple interruptions do not hinder productivity. Give your employees steady hours so that they can sleep at normal hours and have some work/life balance. TRAIN you employees properly so they don't...

          I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than 10 years

          Pros

          - Opportunity to roll up your sleeves and gain experience, practical and technical knowledge. - Some budget for classroom education, but it is limited. However, there are many online education opportunities. - With the new CIO, there are lots of changes happening right now. There is a focus on digital transformation and the customer experience, which should open up new career opportunities.

          Cons

          - You may get pigeonholed into a career position and it is hard to move up the corporate ladder or do a lateral move. - Rite Aid has been stagnating in terms of innovation and has instead focused on getting acquired by some other company (such as Walgreens and Albertsons), but this is changing with new senior management. - Not enough focus and commitment to associate career development.

          Advice to Management

          - Value employees and invest in them, and they will be invested in Rite Aid's success. - Create viable career plans with each employee, and create actionable goals. The current career planning is not working. - There needs to be more of an emphasis on teamwork, and rewarding the success of a team, both socially and monetarily.
