    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Their slogan , “with us, it’s personal” I feel really applies to daily activities. Good workflow and attention to patient specific needs in every pharmacy I’ve worked in. As an intern I was paid for mileage when working in a store that was not my home store. They pay interns very competitively. Very flexible with student schedule. Opportunities to immunize and perform medication therapy management.

    Cons

    Intranet access only in the pharmacy makes it hard sometimes to gather information needed to answer drug questions.

    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Growing relationships with customers is rewarding. Work-life balance depends on how persistent you are with the time off that you want. If you only want mornings, specify that up front. In the workplace, it you can make friends as easily as you can make enemies, my advice: don't gossip and do your job.

    Cons

    stressful depending on the location, vacation time only with 35+ hours a week, insurance/benefits with a minimum of 30 hrs/wk. each store has to meet a quota of flu shots per season

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay, and your employees might go the extra mile like you expect them to do while paying them bare minimum.

    I have been working at Rite Aid

    Pros

    Depending on where you're placed (i.e. store or district) you may work in a team oriented environment. Teamwork make the rude customers more tolerable.

    Cons

    In the event of poor placement, poor management may follow and unorganized management will make the job more difficult.
    Not a place for those who want to move up in the company they work for; Corporate shows they little to no loyalty toward promoting employees from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of team needs.
