Worst Pharmacy Ever
Pharmacist (Former Employee), Springfield MADecember 9, 2014
Pros: everything
Cons: nothing
I have nothing good to say about this company, they wear you out, I was doing 400 scripts a day by myself and being micromanaged on the smallest details. I did not feel comfortable working there and went home every night questioning if I killed someone because I had to work so quickly and under so much pressure.

Horrible job.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Fairlawn, OHDecember 8, 2014
Techs do all the work for the pharmacists and only get paid 8.50 an hr. the pharmacists don't like to help the techs complete there duties and sit on the phone and talk all day. the breaks are short and very little time to eat. most of the time you have to eat on the fly while your working. most customers are rude and will yell at you for the insurance – more... not paying for the meds. – less

Coworkers not warmhearted, very negative

did not enjoy my time there at all
Pharmacy Manager (Former Employee), Layton, UTDecember 6, 2014
My supervisor was very much the "customer is always right" kind of guy to the point that the law did not seem to matter. I tried to straighten out the messes that had been caused and was told the customer comes first, the law be damned.

Productive and customer service oriented work place
Cashier/Stocker/Customer Service (Current Employee), Tacoma, WADecember 6, 2014
Pros: work parties, guaranteed days off, consistent schedule
A typical day at work would be to greet customers as they enter and leave the store, help ring up purchases or complete exchanges or returns. Help customers locate items within the store, complete planograms if they were needed, put away returned items or go backs. I had not worked in a retail store before so I learned a lot about presentation of the – more... store, the right and wrong way to present customer service, your attitude is a large part in how well you present yourself to the customers and how well you execute your customer service skills. Management was well taken care of. The store manager is a respectful man that takes pride in his employees and his store. My co-workers were a huge part in my success at Rite Aid because if I had a question about anything, there was always someone who had an answer which improved my knowledge about the products and their uses and what we carry and what we do not. I would say the hardest part about my job is the difficult customers that occur in a row certain days-regardless of their attitudes, I have learned that I still need to be respectful and kind no matter how they treat me. Customer service is a large part of working in retail and if you cannot handle some difficult customers every once in a while, retail is not for you. I have been there for almost two years. I enjoy being around my co-workers and learning new things. I really do learn at least one thing new every shift and the regular customers that come in enjoy a friendly face and kind smile that greets them when they enter and leave. – less

Very good first job for someone fresh out of high school or still in school.
Associate (Former Employee), Kearny, NJDecember 4, 2014
A typical day on the job would be a few hours on the register and organizing the front end and rest of the day spent organizing the rest of the store while another associate covers you on the register. Always staying on top of price tags on all merchandise. I learned how to work better with customers and understanding to meet their needs to achieve – more... perfect customer service. Co workers are always there to help when you need it and always available. hardest part of the job would be shipment days because we get very busy with customers meanwhile putting all new merchandise away. most enjoyable part of the job is all the customers you get to meet and see every day. – less

Not a bad place.....
Cashier (Former Employee), Saratoga, NYDecember 3, 2014
Pros: flexible hr. if you need them, compliments were written up on you and you could see them when you got one, small employee discount
Cons: can't count on any check, hr. varied week to week never knowing
My typical day was waiting on customers and trying to please them! Overall I did it fairly well. I learned allot on how to please people. I did enjoy seeing my "regular's" there. My biggest drawback were the hours. There was really no rhyme or reason to them. The schedule was often put out a the day before the week that you had to work, so there was – more... very little planning in your life.You couldn't count on any real paycheck there. You did get rewarded though when you did good work. And not just an oral comment. Customers often called in and you were given a pin for this. A nice thing as well....is if you didn't get along w/someone, chances are the way they did the schedule, you wouldn't be working w/them allot. As always management plays a good part of your working environment.....there were good and bad and you deal with it. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), new jerseyDecember 2, 2014
Pros: union company
Cons: company has financial issues affecting service to customers
pay is low compared to others but a great place to work and pharmacist and staff go out of their way for customers. because of the company's past financial issues they cant hire and maintain staff to compete with other chains or they would do extremly well

Cashier/Associate (Former Employee), Burlington, NCDecember 1, 2014
I enjoyed my job at Rite-Aid because it was super easy to maintain while trying to graduate high school. My boss was awesome with scheduling and understood about not being able to work some late nights due to school work. My co-workers were awesome, still stay in touch with them. It was sad to have to leave.
