actually really hard to say unless you can find some in NY who can answer your question...minimum wage laws are diff for each state...I would say the best estimate for your salary would be to take your minimum wage and then add a few bucks to it...

Rite Aid is the LOWEST paying retail store. I would guess $8.

Yup, I agree. I've worked at Rite-Aid for about a year now (in TN) and I just got my first RAISE to 7.50 lol. Oh well its experience... but yeah get certified.. I think they start off at 10 if your certified here. I just don't have the time..

aren't they on the verge of bankruptcy?

oh well, they'd get bought up by CVS or wags anyway and duplicate locations closed.

and is it really hard to completely type out "know" and "anyone?"

The moderators could probably match the IP address on this account with your real one and then ban both for trolling. Just sayin'.

Wow, you did get lucky. I'd kill for that rate (not really). It really is a good corp. to work for. As far as I know they have been making sufficient profits, but you never know the way things are..

they're a public company, check their 10-K/10-Q filings for an easy answer to your question...

...they're not making sufficient profits at all, they had a net operating loss per the two reports I checked.

When I worked for Rite Aid in MD I was getting paid 8.5 until I talked to the DM and he made me "intern" status - and started getting $9.5-10

When I started working for Rite Aid, they paid me $13.60. I think the minimum wage at the time was probably $7.50? Throughout the past 2 years I've gotten raises and now I'm at $16.35. It really doesn't pay as much as other retail stores, so I've heard. But I hear they treat their employees a lot better.
