    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview, then told to come back the next day because they made a mistake and one of the people that needed to be at the interview was not there. Spoke with the manager and she did not know if I was there for a customer service representative or a assistant manager. The advertisement stated full-time and I was told it would only be 20 to 25 hours a week.

    Helped Set Up the Store Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bell, FL
    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.
