    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was called by the district manager two days later to schedule an interview for the next day. The interview was very thorough as far as the job description. The questions were not tricky, they were expected. Interview went well and lasted about 45 minutes. I was then contacted by the human resources manager for a phone interview which lasted about 25 minutes. She again went over the job description very thoroughly, her questions were also not tricky. I was again contacted by the district manager and he again went over the details of the job and what is expected and entailed, he then offered me what I felt was a fair salary for a 52-hour work week.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. I have been in retail for a long time and I did not get any questions that I felt were unreasonable or tricky.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I may have been able to negotiate but did not because I felt the offer was fair.

    Interview Details

    Very Complicated needed to finish online first, which never seemed to work properly. Anywhere from error messages to kept getting disconnected from server no matter what system I used. Their in store systems to hire staff are so out date and slow (seemed slower than dial up) that it makes almost impossible for anyone to finish the application process.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview process seemed very unprofessional and lacking substance.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview Details

    The company policy seems to be to let the candidate wait it out. From my initial interview to my phone interview acceptance took over 30days. Now that I am in position, I understand this is another way to save payroll..

    Negotiation Details
    I knew the store sales and stated my salary request. I came in a tad bit low, so I gave the DM no room to wiggle.
