    Pros

    The people you work with, the customers, SHARECARE is helpful, some benefits are helpful. Great for part time work or a side job.

    Cons

    Pay; expensive benefits out of pay check, given more job titles with a lesser pay is ridiculous. Kiss upper management in order to get your way. Vacation is only renewed each year not by pay period. hard to move up at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay you assocaites better for all there hard work,

    I have been working at Rite Aid part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, corporate discounts (on phone plans, amusements parks, etc.), and hours, flexible when needed. Plenty of room to transfer and grow within the company, which they have improved its accessibility tremendously in the past year or two. Great company discount, comprehensive training.

    Cons

    The pay overall leaves much to be desired, not much room for raises or bonuses no matter how hard or long you work. Depends on quality of store management.

    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Feeling like your a team and being able to train your team to work well together and there is a lot of recognition.

    Cons

    Training for promotion. Very few hours are given for the workload needed. And the stress of needing more help toeet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your management team promote more instead of keeping them grounded because your comfortable

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Rite Aid is the flexibility of hours we have in my department. There are a lot of different functions we can get involved in so we can learn a very broad range of functions.

    Cons

    Associates are promoted because they are "liked" more than someone with skills and experience. They are willing to loose a good employee for the lack of offering promotions or even raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer management positions to qualified hourly associates and don't discount them because they are hourly. Your going to loose some good people.
