    Pros

    The camaraderie among teammates is very good in most areas. Everyone is willing to pitch in and help at any time.

    Cons

    Many recent changes in upper management. Communication has been lacking during this transition.

    I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people I directly work with are still people first, not numbers first.

    Cons

    The company is on a downward trend and likely to either be bought out or go out of business in the near future. Upper management turnover is alarmingly high. Upper management no longer cares about the people, just the numbers.

    Pros

    None. Take this review seriously and go with CVS or Walgreens if you want this line of work.

    Cons

    Upper Management are disrespectful and do not care about their people. They want you to kill yourself physically and mentally do to severe understaffing. Pay is a joke, no one wants to work their for minimum wage and part time to get harassed daily. Rite Aid is a sinking ship do to very bad business decisions. This rolls down to you.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Many managers offer great flexibility for part time associates, including entry level management.

    Cons

    I worked, in various roles, at six different stores. there are common trends. The company has an issue with staffing, especially at the assistant and store manager level. So quite often associates are thrust into these positions with inadequate training. This often leads to frustration with lack of upper management support.

    Advice to Management

    The mentality of store management teams have sole responsibility to train themselves and address staffing issues is not industry standard. The one team concept applies to you as well. If the store management team does not succeed, neither do you.

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    20% employee discount. Nothing else.

    Cons

    Really low pay. Long hours (typical retail). Only provided any pto days after a year of service. Most upper management is incredibly unsupportive.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better starting pay to attract better talent. Maybe throw in a vacation/sick day or two in the beginning. Like just about every other company out there. Provide better support for the stores or at least pretend like you care. (This isn’t for all upper management. I did meet a couple great ones)

    I worked at Rite Aid

    Pros

    You might meet good people It's an easy job

    Cons

    Low pay Upper management doesn't give a crap about employees All about numbers and bottom line Their way to show "appreciation" is giving employees special 30% off discount and if they spend enough money they get $10 rewards... so just a ploy to make more money and still pay employees crap

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about the feedback your employees give rather than giving surveys once a year and then doing nothing to change anything ALSO maybe come into a store every once in awhile and see how it is so you can see how unrealistic and backwards your expectations are
