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.
Rite Aid has been more than a satisfactory employer for me.
My supervisor is very personal and likes to know how all of his employees are doing. He frequently meets with each of us one on one, and often discusses our goals and aspirations for our career and offers advice.
The work, while not as technical as I would prefer, involves supporting the stores nationwide with various hardware and software problems and getting them fixed (or passing them to a different department if need be).
