    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Well paid in comparison with other retail pharmacy jobs

    Cons

    Typical downsides of retail pharmacy with a shrinking profit margin. Corporate structure allows little room for independent decision making within a store; Too much emphasis on giving flu shots and sticking to quotas; corporate wide misuse of metrics as a means of punishment when quotas are not met, as opposed to using them for measuring and keying staff into where inefficiencies may lie; Little control over staffing; Long days with few if any breaks, etc...

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

    Pros

    Started at $8.50 an hour, which is higher than most retail places
    The co-workers are usually friendly

    Cons

    The nightshift goes by so slow!
    Customers can be rude
    Shifts constantly change. You might work 8 a.m.- 3 p.m. one day, then 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. the next or 1 p.m.-9 p.m.
    Jobs vary. You switch between cashier, stocker and pharmacy tech.
    On truck day, your shift starts at 4 a.m.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little stability would be appreciated.

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people work there. There is room for advancement if you're willing to work hard. I worked with mostly great people--my managers really listened to me. You can get a lot of hours if you are good enough to warrant them.

    Cons

    The pay is miniscule, and your work environment depends on the people you work with. Gossip and drama abound sometimes, however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people a living wage.

    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    The biggest pro of working in a non-traditional career is the intrinsic benefit of following your dreams and the satisfaction that comes from the empowerment of a job done well.

    Cons

    Probably the biggest con is the lack of enough mentors in non-traditional careers. Mentors, people in higher positions within your career field, are critical to your success as they can guide you, protect you, and help you along in your career. (Read more about mentors.)
