I worked at Rite Aid (less than an year)

Pros

the discount was ok and the pay was above minimum wages

Cons

the store manager mainly only cared about the mother workers there and not much about the r employees that did not have children. Also too many clicks among the manger.

    I worked at Rite Aid

    Pros

    There are a handful of really nice pharmacists who are great at what they do and are wonderful to their technicians, which makes the job a little more bearable.

    Cons

    They pay their technicians horribly and expect a ton from them. They will offer raises and time off and will not follow through, or will find a way to mess up your hours and pay. There is little to no incentive to work hard and create high metrics and as a result there is a high turnover for technicians. Technicians who work 11 or 12 hour shifts have been told they are not allowed to have a small snack or water in the pharmacy. Corporate rarely listens to the complaints of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some sympathy and consideration before implementing new rules. Pay your employees as if they mean something to you.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good group of employees under me at each of the 5 stores I was assigned to, with a few exceptions.

    Cons

    They will fire you quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is talk of Rite Aid being good to the employees, but it is just talk. In reality you demand more and more for the same or less pay and give less time to do it. Districts think it is possible just because someone thought it is a good idea and a good way to save money. Result is unsatisfied employees who are always behind and being pushed to do more. When it's time for the blame game, its always the managers, so they try to push that onto others and the blame game begins. Whole stores get fired at times as a result. Very unpleasant place to work. Very cheap towards employees and benefits.
