    Helped Set Up the Store Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bell, FL

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview Details

    There was no interview process. A group of 18 people were randomly selected in order to set up the entire store for 10 consecutive days. Only six people were chosen from the 18 that started to work in the store once it opened. So in total, references and curriculum vitae had no influence on wether you were hired or not, what did matter was who could lift 50 pounds or more.

    Interview Details

    I applied to Family Dollar through their website. A couple of weeks later, I received a call asking me to go the store for an interview. It wasn't much of an interview, but instead I was told what the company was about, and how difficult the job was going to be. Also, most of the time was spent on discussing the drug screen.
