It was a pretty easy process. I was interviewed by store manager and district manager. I was like most job interviews. I was contacted shortly after interview and offered a job.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Brooklyn, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Interview was very short and brief. Hiring manager joked with me and said " you've already got the job" when I showed up dressed in a red blouse ( the company's uniform color). He assessed my management skills and after about 15 minutes of questioning he began to show me some of the ins and outs of the store and placed me for training.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Nashville, TN) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and a few days later I got called for an interview. The women who called me for the interview didn't even show up. I interviewed with another person that was there and it went great, loved talking to her. She told me she would try to get a hold of the original people that where supposed to interview me and get back to me. I never heard anything from anyone of them again.

    Interview

    I was hired the moment I walked in. Some strange upheaval had occurred. I had on a red shirt and was offered the job. Was told it was 8.50 and hour. No room for negotiation. Even asked about pay for experience and was told 8.50.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Chesapeake, VA).

    Interview

    Applied online, was called within a week or two about a job opening... store manager asked me to come in to interview, I agreed. Once getting to the store, store manager took me to the office to interview me, it all lasted less than 30 minutes or so.

    Interview Questions

    • I was repeatedly asked if I steal, or would steal for friends... repeatedly. It was so alarming and bothersome, I almost told her to offer the job to someone else. Apparently they have a huge shrink (theft) problem in their stores, but anybody asked if they steal are going to tell you "no" so I don't see how that's a question to spend 15 minutes discussing with someone brand new.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    Applied online and went in during open house. The interview was very easy and the questions were not hard. The DM stated 'I could start as a store manager'' she would pull my app and start the background checks. I sent her email to follow up and nothing. I called the DM and she set up an interview with a store manager and that was a breeze as well.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not feel comfortable with the reply process and by the time, they go back to me I had two other offers, both with more money.
