Not a bad starting place.

Wellness Ambassador (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits, if you work at a union store, flexible hours

ConsRaises don't really happen to often and upper management doesn't always understand why things aren't done when they cut the hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork with the employees not against them and recognize employees when they do well not just when they are failing at unrealistic goals.

Good job. Reasonable pay

Cashier (Former Employee)
Orono, ME (US)

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

ProsFlexible hours, suitable for students. Good working atmosphere, no previous experience required, guaranteed hours. Good location, employee discount. Excellent training.

ConsNot very dynamic job. Uniforms required but not provided by the employer. When it is busy there is not enough staff which puts pressure on the few employees serving customers.

Love working at RIte Aid

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee)
Aurora, CO (US)

I have been working at Rite Aid full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat team at my store every one is super supportive and the dynamics are great. When i was hired my store manager went out of her way to get me the highest wage that she could. This ended up being 2 dollars more than i asked for.

ConsI feel like the computer system was hard to learn and has a few down sides that can cause customer dissatisfaction and get you yelled at.

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

A challenge

Store Manager (Current Employee)

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

ProsHard work, good pay, good benefits

Consreduced hours makes getting things done difficult, not impossible but difficult. At times too many changes occur all at once, yes change is good but not always the best ideas are brought to the table.

Advice to Senior ManagementCome to the stores and talk with associates see what the real pulse is. Studies are done with the new initiatives, but you really wonder if they are actual.
