    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Ridgeland, MS) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called about 6 weeks after applying for a Temporary Customer Service Representative at a new location that was being built in my city. The manager interviewed me at a location in another city since the one in my city wasn't ready yet. She asked about my past experience, availability, salary requirements and why I left. I could tell by her her facial expressions regarding my answers that she did not approve so I don't expect a callback.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sharon Hill, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Sharon Hill, PA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was a breeze. Although, the current manager had only been there 3 months and didn't at all seem satisfied. Spent plenty of time telling me how low the pay scale was and how hard the work load would be and how few hours I would get. Don't expect overtime. He was seriously trying to talk me into not taking the position? Now that I look back, I think he was threatened.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked the standard questions. "What if? What would you do? How would you handle? Tell me about a time... Also, seemed particularly interested in how I would handle shrinkage(employee theft).   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Family Dollar Stores in March 2014.

    Interview

    First you have to go on-line to do your app. They are pretty progressive as far as being paperless. They do a background check. I personally had to stay committed to keeping my name as a familiar. It took over 3 weeks before any actions were taken. After a drug screening and interview in a make shift office I was hired. That process was over a month long.

    Interview Questions

    • Not so much as a question but a statement to the effects of ...."DON'T STEAL" !!   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores in March 2014.

    Interview

    It was actually very laid back. The person that interviewed me was very friendly and explained things to me that I would be doing.We walked around the store and she would point out exactly how products were to be placed on the shelves and told me about how busy the day/days that stock would be delivered.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I was ready for hard work for low pay ... said playfully but they were not lying!   Answer Question

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chesapeake, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    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
