What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at Rite Aid?
What do you like best about working at Rite Aid? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

Number One- Pay stinks! technically I've received a 7 cent raise each year since I've been with the company, my friend has been with the company for 20yrs. and minimum wage is at 7.00 an hour here in Ohio, she's at 7.50...wow right!
Number Two- Poor management! Upper Management and Corp. don't have any respect for the little people who make the company run. No sick time, personal days, or vacation unless your management. Then you get one to three weeks vacation depending on how long you've been with the company, one personal day, and you have to work an average of 40 hrs. a week to be qualified. They're very picky about the whole thing, and don't give enough hours to set you up with a possibility of that happening. I have half a notion to start a walk out.
Number Three- Unsolved Problems! I contacted our Districts Human Resources Manager about our store's General Manager having some serious issues. I mean throwing things (even hitting people with these things), knocking people off ladders, cussing at employees, belittling us, making us feel stupid, we're often forced into taking sides over other employees against our own personal feelings. We feel bullied, harassed, and that most days we come to work in a hostile environment! And so far, not a single thing has happened, noone has come in to question us, noone has really expressed any concern for our safety, or our happiness. It's been almost a week, and nothing...you would think someone would be in as soon as they got the message-I e-mailed them. And I know they received it! I got an acknowlegement letter back...redirecting it to another manager.
Though there is much more, I need to go to bed and get up for work tomorrow. So look for more horror stories from me and well, the rest of the rite aid work force! The bad news is everywhere as you can see. =(

Do you buy into the hype? Do you think Rite Aid is really going to meet their end of the bargain on this "Cultural Change"?

I conducted the Rite Aid phone interview and my phone cut off in the middle of it so I failed it. How long does it take until it resets and I can take it again?

Kind of a mystery for me: Due to family reasons I recently moved outside of Harrisburg. I've worked in the DC/Baltimore area for a number of years, and while I've got a good job, it's a horrible commute now. Just casting a quick eye for close-by companies, I noticed Rite Aid HQ was literally right up the street.
They post a number of Category management/Inventory analysis jobs available on their website. However, I've applied to almost a half-dozen jobs (through their on-line HR system) and haven't even gotten selected for an initial review. I've got a degree in Market Research from Georgetown and 10 years of experience with a Fortune 500 company in a major market. I've gotten same-day call backs from the three companies I applied to in Harrisburg, but not even a whiff from Rite Aid.
I would never state my (or anyone's) candidacy is 'can't miss', but it's a very blue-collar rural market and my experience is advanced for the area. I'm fortunate to have strong interest from other area companies, but Rite Aid HQ is very conveniently located. Getting any job is always a crap-shoot, but I'm surprised to not even get a cursory look out of several jobs that are right in my field. Does anybody have any inside info on hiring over there/tips on what they usually look for?

I have read all of the topics here and it seems like everybody hated rite aid. I am an 18 year old in between high school and college and only plan on working there over summer, so i am not worried about pay raises. Would it really be hell to work there for 3 months? Also i know the manager is a nice person, so i am not worried about being screwed over by him, but rather by corporate. So, ignoring issues with store management and pay raises, is there anything i need to worry about?

Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Rite Aid?
Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers?
What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Rite Aid?

Do you work at Rite Aid? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?
Any advice for someone trying to get in?

I just wanted to make a positive statement about being a new
hire at Rite Aid. Being over 50 years old, and after a brief
4 month hire at Safeway, I can say it's 'refreshing' to work at
They start us at $10.00/hr, and promise over 20 hours a week.
I'm averaging closer to 30 hrs these days, and the promise for
Summer is a bonus of $1.00 to $1.50 an hour over Summer, and
at least 30 hrs minimum ... Why the fuss?
I hadn't run a cash register in nearly a year, and my last job
had me collecting shopping carts and cleaning floors. At Rite Aid
I'm a Cashier/Clerk, Photo Technician, handle Money Orders, Hunting/
Fishing Licenses, and Customer Service at the 'lead' register, and I've
only been working less than three weeks!
No bogus promises about hiring/promoting from within, no interviews
at the District, only to be 'lost' at the Store Level, etc. - all
in all, it's a great job, and if you don't agree, check the other
posts, and forums for other companies, like Safeway. Yes, I was
mistakenly placed as 'acting' manager in the Seafood Dept. at
Safeway, but I didn't want to be a legal pawn between the Union
and the Store Management.
Rite Aid will train you on everything you can learn, and I
routinely check-in Freight and Inventory, do store stocking/facing
and am awaiting Plan-o-Gram training. Thank you Rite Aid!
