The introduction to my work experience.
Shift Manager/Customer Service (Former Employee), Stamford, CTDecember 18, 2014
A typical day working at Rite Aid consisted of assisting customers with any questions they had, working behind the register, facing all products in the aisles, restocking the floor, ordering product for next truck delivery, and organizing the store to company standards. I learned how to deal with aggravated customers since this was my first job, and – more... when I became a supervisor I learned how to manage a team of people. The previous manager worked well with the crew and also knew how to mold managers, but when the new manager came the store began to take a decline. My co-workers were a decently put together team of young high school students as well as myself, but we learned to grow with the help of the right manager. The hardest part of the job at that time was working with aggravated customers since it was my first job. The most enjoyable part was the experience I gained from working there. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Rocky Mount, NCDecember 17, 2014
Pros: nice direct management, good learning experience
Cons: no breaks, low pay, little benefits
I typical day at work is filled with task such as data entry, filing prescriptions, filling prescriptions. We also speak with doctors office to confirm patient route of administration and frequently call insurance providers to gain coverage for patient medication. The hardest parts of our job is being unable to help patient because of a doctors error – more... or insurance not covering certain medication which sometimes causes customers to become hostiIe,I enjoy working as a team to help assist our customers with medications that aid them in staying healthy. – less

Fun Workplace
Cashier/Stock (Former Employee), Fairfax, VirginiaDecember 16, 2014
A typical day at work was pretty much the same. My Job duty was a cashier. I didn't really learn much from working at rite aid. My manager showed favoritism, some co-workers were nice and friendly the others were rude and disrespectful. I can honestly say the hardest part about the job was truck day and inventory. The most enjoyable part was doing signs.

Fast Paced
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), New Bedford, MADecember 15, 2014
You are going to work hard and you have to maintain one hundred percent accuracy. Mistakes can kill people. The greatest part is helping the really sweet people. But the administration doesn't back you up as employees and the health care is minute.

Great place to work!
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Bakersfield, CADecember 15, 2014
Pros: health insurance/dental, lot of hours
Cons: bad part of town
I work at a very busy Rite Aid, a typical day consists of answering phones, helping customers refill prescriptions and ring them up, counting pills, drive thru transactions, typing new prescriptions, and unpacking load and getting orders ready for that day. I love my co-workers, everyone helps each other and makes sure the day goes smoothly. The hardest – more... part of the job is handling difficult customers in an elegant and calm manner, but I would say the most enjoyable part of the job is the regular customers that come in and you already know their name and you can just have a pleasant conversation and easy transaction. – less

A great starter job to gain experiance
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), NJDecember 15, 2014
Pros: sometimes great people to work with
Cons: a lot of pressure
The company is a very great company to work for. You always have to just start on the bottom and work your way up. Just a lot of pressure on the store management team and can be very stressfu at times but what job isn't.

Hard to work for
Pharmacy Associate (Former Employee), Medina NYDecember 14, 2014
A typical day at rite aid would be to work 12 hours and try and do a two person job yourself and get a crummy attitude when you cant do it fast enough even tho the other girl ignores the customers on purpose and still gets paid the same amount as you. The management lets alot of unacceptable things slide because they dont want to be short handed. Rediculous. – more... Some of my co-workers were great people but the others were just hard to get along with and completely selfish. The hardest part of my job was trying to take care of every customer on my own because like I had said previously the other girl on staff walks like a slug and ignores customers on purpose. The most enjoyable part of my job was the end of my shift when I got to go home.. – less

fun place to work for with nice people
shift supervisor (Current Employee), Oswego, NYDecember 12, 2014
Pros: pizza parties once a month, bowling nights
Cons: the roof leaks and theres very little parking due to the parking lot is closed
On a typical day at work, we look for any outdates in the milk coolers and bread. Then the manager will do a back room pull from the over stock to make sure everything was stocked on the shelves and there were no empty spaces on the shelf. My co-workers are funny and always willing to help. The hardest part of the job is dealing with an unsatisfied – more... customer. We do all we can to make sure everyone leaves happy. The most enjoyable part of the job are the coworkers. – less

Productive and well-oriented teamwork
Pharmacy Technician/Cashier (Current Employee), Queens, NYDecember 10, 2014
A typical day at Rite Aid Pharmacy is extremely hectic. In entails being enthusiastic, helpful, fast-paced, organized, and friendly. The staff is very helpful and the teamwork displayed to get the job done is outstanding. The customers are often frequent and recognized promptly. Customers usually drop off their scripts and recommend a time they would – more... like to pick up their completed medication. Some customers have more than 1 or 2 scripts to be filled. Frequently, we have periods where a numerous amount of patients bring their medications and expect it to be ready promptly. That's where the teamwork and well- organized staff really display their skills. Our customers are usually very satisfied with their services. The management team works are your schedule if you have kids or attending school. They always provide words of encouragement. I usually learn a lot of about drugs and what they used for which leads to being interested in different types of illnesses. – less

Good company with much potential.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Kent, WADecember 10, 2014
You get from your job what you bring. The environment is all about the customer. If you enjoy people and want to make a difference the opportunities are there for you to enjoy your job. Must be flexible with your time for working retail you don't have an opportunity to dictate your schedule. Need to remember that every moment you are at work you are – more... being watched and your actions reflect very loudly. Success is based on a team environment. If you work as a team from top of the store to the "bottom" and from the front to the RX then you will be a part of a very successful store. – less

The Rite was ok to work for
Pharmacy Technician Extern (Former Employee), Sacramento, CADecember 10, 2014
The pharmacist manager went an extra mile for the staff it was ok to work but wasn't really that impressive. The real thing that really bothered me was the organization of the medications as they had switched them at the last minute and it made things so confussing

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Port Orchard, WADecember 10, 2014
Pros: 20% of entire store
Cons: short breaks
I learned how to handle money and communicate with others. Work days would be standing by the register answering the phone or checking people out. The co-workers were very nice and I liked seeing people smile when they saved money. the hardest part of my job is when it would get really busy and someone would need help looking for something but I would – more... have to stay at the register to help check people out. I had four managers and all were four of the nicest ladies in the world. – less
