Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Madison, AL – January 18, 2014
I really enjoyed working for such a great company that allowed me to love my work and get a chance to help people feel better. I am always busy at rite aid which I loved. I have had a chance to learn how much helping people to get their medications at an affordable rate with a personal smile makes all the difference to the customer. the management was very good at her job and did the job very well. Overall I would definitely give rite aid another chance if I could and would recommend rite aid to everyone.
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – October 22, 2016
At first when starting the job the manager was not so friendly so I was quite discouraged at first. I even thought of quitting on like the 3rd day of work but somehow I pulled through and things started to look up for me.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Wilmington, DE – October 21, 2016
A typical day at work is always a good one for me because I always make the best of my day. Everyday I learn new ways to deal with customers. My co workers are great I really get along well with all of them. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep my cool when I am addressed but such nasty customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is pleasing the customers.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Marysville, WA – October 20, 2016
Hands down one of the best places to work. The management to include district managers make personal visits and truly care about their staff. They are very accommodating and understanding and truly want you to advance.
This job was super fun. I would look forward to go work. I learned so many thing, I learned how to do planograms, how to keep up with the daily task of the store. My coworkers were super friendly and resourceful.
Utilize your workforce! I saw several instances where good over-educated or wonderful technicians were passed over for advancement in favor of outside hires, or even unqualified associates, that happened to know the right people or run with the right crowd. Great people who had degrees and had been loyal to the company were not promoted, when they could have been grooming those associates for upward movement.
I loved my manager and co-workers I was very sad to have to leave
Cashier and Customer Service, (Former Employee) – Warren, OH – October 19, 2016
I looked forward to seeing everyone. It was a friendly family store. I had the best manager! I was taught just about everything, from cashier to ordering stock. The hardest part for me was getting back into the working environment. And leaving to start a new life
as long as our work was done and we told a manager we could break as needed

Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – October 18, 2016
Helps up front when needed and in the pharmacy. Hours change constantly, can work mornings or evenings, sometimes back to back (evening to morning shift). Fellow associates and regular customers are friendly and make the workplace a welcome environment. The store is shorthanded, so we have all had to work overtime and that is fine sometimes, but it's been a few months now. I like working in the pharmacy because I feel like I seriously help people by working there.

Cashier (Former Employee) – Shrewsbury, MA – October 17, 2016
Worked there as a cashier for a year. Very low-stress job, but with little pay. Enjoyed helping elderly customers find what they needed. Most co-workers were nice and got along well. Did get boring after a while as my job was being a cashier in a very, very slow small store.
