Store Manager

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Okemos, MI (US)

I worked at Rite Aid full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAlways something new to do everyday !

ConsMore hourly payroll would help Customer Service

Advice to Senior ManagementWellness Ambassadors are a good idea, keep promoting up the ranks from within, there are a lot of good ideas out there at the Store Level from seasoned Managers. They could provide another avenue of information to help business grow at the Corporate level.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Awesome team of people!

Pharmacy Cashier (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rite Aid full-time

Pros-Hours are solid- 40 every week unless you want less
-Employees are amazing
-Easy to progress to a higher posittion if you work hard

Been working here for 6 months and i love every minute of it, 6 months and im already getting promoted to a tech through there program, Which in turn has made me sign up for college to go to pharmacy school. My mother has worked with this company for almost 15 years and seeing how well they pushed her to succeed has made me want to go to school!
If your not a hard worker, dont apply, they will let you go in a heartbeat!

Cons-Bigger break room would be nice
-Let lower down people know the weekly goals and weekly numbers
-more praise for employees who work hard

Advice to Senior ManagementShow some love to the employees, Not just the customers

It's Drug Store retail.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rite Aid full-time

ProsNot a bad Store level environment. Management works with your scheduling so you can get the time off you need when you need it. The Company as whole seems to be moving in the right direction.

ConsDistrict level management is often rude and unapproachable.
They run all stores the same, so some stores don't have enough payroll hours to stay ahead. Playing catch up all the time isn't fun.

Advice to Senior ManagementRework how payroll hours are given on a store to store basis, not just "You make this much money so you deserve this many hours."
Hold higher level management accountable on how they treat store level associates.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
