    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company centers around community care and relationships with patients Lax work environment with the right manager Health benefits after 3 months full time Flexible schedule Floating to other stores gets overtime if that store is in need, paid mileage

    Cons

    Upper management is hard to reach, does not seem to care much about store-level associates Less and less hours available for pharmacy staff despite any growth in prescriptions they may have, making you do more with less Pharmacists don't get a lunch unless overlap exists, can lead to concerning medication error or risk for patients Overtime not allowed to be performed by the store's associates, only from external stores so if you are isolated in an area within your district you could get overwhelmed if nobody comes to help One of the lowest pay rates I have seen for pharmacy technicians now that I am looking for a new job

    Fulltime work schedule Not required to work in the pharmacy or at the front end of the store.
