    Good company but too much pressure on lower level workers (Cashiers)

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with hours, managers (for the most part) are always looking to help you advance, salary is okay and paycheck is always on time

    Cons

    Good employees are not shown appreciation as much as they should, management sometimes puts tasks on you that you have not even been properly trained for, customers are usually very rude and expect you to always meet their each and every need (even when sometimes you could get in serious trouble)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually get to learn how it is to be a cashier/lower-level employee instead of barely paying them attention. Stop cutting payroll and hours, but still expect employees to complete the extreme amount of work you give out to do.

    Pros

    Large company with ability to advance
    Offered many levels of challenge
    Good work-life balance
    Aggressive in changing to stay current, especially with healthcare focus

    Cons

    Recent management changes in corporate (last 5yrs) create some inconsistency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful in administration of performance management practices. Leads to over-analyzing and type-setting by those in position to judge performance. Many leaders are abusing their power following 7 box sessions.

    I worked at Rite Aid part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally great people to work with, flexible schedule, good about working around college students schedules

    Cons

    Short shifts, Management expects a lot of responsibility for pretty much min wage, everyone seems to play the blame game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what you expect from your employees compared to what you're willing to pay them, you're completely unreasonable.
