    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Hourly pay is decent but always understaffed. Retail hours open late and on weekends.

    Cons

    Doesn't offer good benefits. Have to work minimum hours to qualify.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having adequate staffing can help reduce errors. Also keep more customers returning when wait times are reduced.

    Pros

    Always something to do, never boring. Generally good teams on store level. They are flexible when you need off for the most part.

    Cons

    You won't be paid fairly for the amount of work you do, and the workload is constantly growing. Not enough payroll hours to complete the work that needs to be done, then you get chewed up for not getting everything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The retain employees, pay them fairly. No one wants to work there long term for the pay.

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

    Pros

    There are friendly coworkers, great community, and many opportunities to save money like family and friends day and discounts for the workers.

    Cons

    The work can be tiresome. A lot of heavy lifting and a few disgruntled customers can be stressful but in all a great job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be better balanced work schedules so there are enough people to handle the busier shifts.
