Worst place to work

about
Worst place to work...insanely dissorganized...with every new manager all of the rules change, if you're a good employee they could care less...the only way to advance in the company is to get promoted to assistant manager first where you will be forced to work hours and hours of overtime an you will be moved far away from where you live and moved over an over...they make a big deal about appreciating their associates but try don't appreciate anyone in the slightest...this company is run by morons who are behind a few generations...terrible at financing and most people above you have never actually worked in the environment they make you work in so they think all their ideas are golden even though they generally make no sense at all...if you can get a job elsewhere you definitely ahould...I can't wait to get out of here

Terrible place to work

about
I've worked a lot of places, a lot of less than stellar jobs. None has quite compared to Rite Aid where I work now, however. From an abusive store manager to a company that doesn't care one iota about their employees and has no idea how to run their business. They'll cut everyone's hours and then scream at you when two people on a shift can't quite do everything you need four people scheduled to accomplish. You're not an even a number to them, you're a barely existent drone to use and discard at their whims, I'd rather be unemployed than work here.

Pharmacist perspective

about
I've worked in pharmacies for 35 years and started working part time for Rite Aid a couple of years ago. In the interview process I was assured that there would always be a pharmacy tech available on all shifts. Once hired I discovered in the two locations I was working in there tech coverage was 1 person per store, 40 hours a week, no coverage at night or weekends. One pharmacist would be responsible for answering 3 phones, taking care of patients at the drop off and pickup windows , give vaccines , take care of voicemails, and auto fill prescriptions , answer questions patients would have concerning OTC preps and their own personal medications, and have time to counsel patients on medications that were being picked up. It was obvious early on that quality of service was secondary to the bottom line, they could talk the talk , but could not walk it.. I moved on to another pharmacy where patient care was of chief importance, not a secondary wish.

about
Anyone that complains about the pay obviously doesnt realize that this is a job that requires no education! Youre not going to get paid a great salary at an easy retail job that requires no previous experience or anything. With the union, I've gotten regular raises until I maxed out at over 4 dollars more per hour than minimum wage. Pretty good for a simple retail job. If you want to get paid more go to college! My store is very clean and problems get solved. We get better than expected benefits as well. It all depends on who you work with, if you have an issue talk to your human resources manager. The company itself runs itself very stupidly, spending money on the least important things and leaving more important things undealt with. Besides that its a great company to work for!

fuck rite aid!

about
Rite aid abuses its employees and is currently being overrun by scum. Not only does our management team suck and can never have a straight answer about any concerns voiced by their employees, but they also have the audacity to not only make us work 55 hour work weeks religiously without any advance notice of any kind, but also has the balls to point you when you cant submit to their satanic overtime demands and actually have children to pick up from school or a life to live. God forbid you actually watch your childs soccer game once a year. Not only are the hours completely despicable but the management on a personal level is disgusting, its supposed to be against company policy for managers to date hourly associates, but we actually have a couple that are engaged. This wouldnt be an issue but the associate isnt held to the same standards as the rest of the building because our group leader is petrified of crossing her "fiance". I'm sorry but if were forced to work like dogs for 11 hours a day, EVERYONE should be treated equal. even more disgusting, is our group lead was also told to tape up food that mice have been eating and put it back on the line to be sent to the stores. theres mice and their dropping infesting the building, and YOU as a consumer and stockholders food and medicine. Its pretty sad, but the mice in the building have the "rite" idea. Rite aid is virtually a sewer.

about
Rite Aid sucks they are one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. I thought they would be better then cvs but they are just as bad. I am a shift supervisor who is grossly underpaid and gets no respect, and when I voiced a concern to the dm he completely dismissed it and told me he did not appreciate me bringing the issue up to him at that particular time wtf!! If you're smart stay away from rite aid they pay crap they treat their employees like crap and they are the lowest form of scum on the planet! F Rite Aid!
