    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule fits well with my retirement; ability to earn a "few" extra dollars while being able to meet people, wonderful customers and some not so wonderful; keeps my brain functioning.

    Cons

    Began with a 3 day a week shift that's grown to 6 days because of employee turnover and dismissal; want to get back to 3 days or 4 days. If you volunteer to do something once, it becomes your duty going forward, close the store every shift after asking for a day shift occasionally. Whatever you put on the application for days you can work, double that ... it's retail. 3% raise is the most to expect no matter what extra you do so starting salary of $7.25 takes years to get to the $8+ reported here. There are shift managers who are not always honest and it's discouraging.

    Advice to Management

    If you want good employees and want to keep them, give a raise after the first 90 days and raise according to merit rather than policy. There are shift managers who are not always honest and it's discouraging....they're getting paid over $10 an hour depending on years of service.

    Pros

    Not many customers to help. Quiet usually.

    Cons

    Management pushes us to sign people up for rewards cards, but most of the customers buy beer and cigarettes and they don't get any discount on those items

    Advice to Management

    Not to push so much for signing up for the rewards card
