Stay to yourself
Field Technician L2 (Former Employee), Metro DetroitJuly 21, 2014
Pros: working by myself most of the time - no one to distract me.
Cons: being on the road all day, you don't always get the help you need when you need it.
Only thing I can say is - stay to yourself and don't get involved with ANYTHING that is not part of your job. For instance, if your a front end cashier - just stick to that! Don't get involved what the pharmacy, management or store security is doing. I learned that after 12 dedicated years I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up getting – more... fired for simply defending myself against an unprovoked shoplifter attack. If I would've been on the other side of the counter or any other part of the store, I would still be employed. – less

Pros: steady amount of hours
Cons: healthcare, non physical.
A typical day at Sitel consist of answering phones. Learning people skills. the management is ok. Co-workers are usually ok not hard to deal with. The hardest part of the job is not that the job itself is hard ,but dealing with the customers. the most enjoyable part of the job is when I am not working on the phones but answering other representatives – more... questions. – less

Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT) (Current Employee), Ontario, ORJuly 16, 2014
Pros: the customers for the most part are wonderful people
Cons: customers as well as coworkers can be irritable and difficult to please.
Keeps you on your toes with close to 400 scripts filled a day. Some days the harsh words of customers and sometimes coworkers can get to you, but the familiar and happy faces of our regulars always makes it better.

Fast-paced, productive environment.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Warren, MIJuly 14, 2014
Pros: 10% employee discount
Cons: low pay
Typical day is a very fast-paced one. I would come in to work with prescription waiting to be filled, customers waiting in line to pick up and drop off prescription, and at the same time customers waiting at the drive-thru.
One of the many things I learned was to manage my time, and to fill prescriptions quickly and properly, there wasn't much room – more... for mistakes. I learned to multitask, from counting pills, prevent a prolonged wait for any customers, picking phone calls, entering information, and keeping the place clean and professional.
The hardest part of the job was getting used to the stress level and how fast you have to react to issues. No customers enjoys a prolonged stay at an "convenience" store.
Lastly, the most enjoyable part was the customers. Even though, that's where all the stress is coming from, after many routine visits I grew fond of them. When there's a chance, I would listen to their stories, whether it be how bad or good their day was, or how life used to be, or some weird conspiracies. Every story was enjoyable, and made my stressful day a little easier. – less

Store closed
Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Lincoln Park, MIJuly 14, 2014
Pros: union shop, fair and timely raises, scheduling, great manager
Cons: store closed, bad neighborhood brought in a lot of shoplifters
Rite Aid was actually a decent store to work for. You always could approach management; as were they always quick to introduce you to higher ups and visiting management. I did work in a union store, so the raises came as they were supposed to, you have the union to back you if needed....plus I had some great co workers and an awesome store manager!

One – more... issue tho, with a CPhT, remember you always start at the bottom and when a store only has 2 or 3 techs, the one that's been there 150 years will think she not only owns you, but owns the store as well. Just be aware! – less

cashier
Cashier (Former Employee), philadelphia, PAJuly 14, 2014
Pros: good amount of hours, okay pay
Cons: terrible management, favoritism
Rite aid was by far my least favorite job because the managers were very rude and they showed favoritism towards other employees. IT was a easy job i was good at and i was fast. I worked well with everyone and most importantly i gave each every customer excellent customer service. Although my current job doesn't give out enough its way more peaceful – more... then rite aid was. – less
