    Interview

    Easy interview but I felt it was unnecessary for the type of job that I was applying for. It was a sales job and it involved checking out customers and helping them with products and complaints. It was customer service and sales.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview

    Very approachable and friendly. I already felt like part of the team. I got a call asking me to come in for a face-to-face interview, met the manager in his office, chatted about my previous experience, and then started talking about books and politics. Sadly, that manager didn't stay long and the experience went down-hill from there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Pinellas Park, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring manager doing most of the talking. Didn't really ask me a lot of questions or my skills. Mostly went by my resume and skill check. Was hired on the spot however, and manager seemed friendly during the interview. What I did find strange though, when I asked for the manager by name the employee on duty said she's probably lyrics outside smoking a cigarette on the phone as always. She never helps me. What a great first impression I was thinking.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Springfield, OH) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had two interviews, one with the Store Manger, and one with the District Manager. The Store Manager asked routine questions about my qualifications, and ran through some expectations. The interview was about 15 minutes long. The District Manager then interviewed me, but she really didn't ask about me at all. She spent the 30 minutes we shared telling me what type of leader she was, how long she had been with the company and her future goals. I felt in both instances that I was more qualified as a leader than both of the interviewers. I felt that both leaders were unprofessional in dialog and presented themselves poorly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (New Orleans, LA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview wasn't much of an interview at all. I came in and the manager basically talked about herself and the company the whole time. Prior to the interview I looked at reviews on Glassdoor and already knew some of the things she talked about. I wasn't asked anything about abilities or prior experience. She looked at my application for two seconds and handed me a paper about drug testing.
