I worked at Rite Aid for about 4 years as a manager, while also working for my friend's family company for 5 years off and on. I've had plenty of experience with pay per view accounts through my friend's company, but would always like to get more experience with a company that is a little more established. As much as I enjoy customer service, I am not a huge fan of working as a glorified babysitter (a.k.a. retail management) and would rather work in my desired career path on a more permanent basis.
Worked here for over a year. Shift manager smokes pot outside of the store. Store manager plays favorites. Low pay, lots of drama. The customers are pretty nice.I like our pharmacy staff since they are all so outgoing. Only real problem is at the store level. Most employees at this location are miserable and suffer from low morale. Two managers are always picking on the one shift manager and he is the ONLY one who seems to genuinely care about keeping morale up. If it wasn't for him, I'd quit.
There is way too much management, management EVERYWHERE with nothing to do but run the same information down a very long line until it hits me and my co-workers. They need to listen to their employees and focus on what matters. There is too much emphasis on numbers that don't matter and less emphasis on the patient experience.
