Rite-Aid Complaint - Rite-Aid management - former employee
NORTH CAROLINA -- I worked at a Rite-Aid near Asheville, NC. The manager was the worst I ever had. Actually, a micro-manager. As a grown adult, he had me stand in front of the door when I wasn't busy with customers, and greet people and had me say this stupid greeting. I had one customer say: This isn't Wal-mart it's a drugstore. Oh really, then tell that to my manager. He had this dumb memo from corporate asking all employees to do this welcome greeting to every customer. They are the worst company to work for. Miss Vice Pres CEO came in there one day when we weren't busy and I had already dusted counters, swept, cleaned the glass windows and organized the front, so per my managers orders I was standing up front waiting for customers to greet. Well, she comes in there, and not ever having met her before, she say's to me : Geez, I wish I could just stand there and get paid for it". I told her my manager wanted me to stand at the front and greet customers. She told my manager"Why is she just standing there? Give her something to do. She never said anything else to me, let alone look at me the whole time she was there. You are never thanked or appreciated for anything you do at that store. They only comment on what you need to do or could have done even though you are doing your best, while keeping your eye on the register till a customer comes up, especially when you are the only front end employee and cashier in the whole store. I am glad I quit there. The pharmacists were rude to me as well.
