    Having 31 years experience my background was not looked at, I was just told I did not have the experience, a much younger inexperienced person received the promotion

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    the customers are the best part of the job. working the same shift over and over, you get to know them all very well.

    Cons

    horrible payroll, not enough time or money to do the things that need to be done to keep the store looking great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your managers, they are the ones on the front lines with the customers. they are the ones that hear the complaints about no one being around to check them out, or to help them. just because an employee's basket size is low, doesn't mean that they are stealing from the company, you need to look at the whole picture before having them interrogated. look at the hours that they work, and the sales, we can't drag people in off the street and make them spend money that don't have to bring up our basket sizes.
