    Pros

    Great co-workers fun to be around,very large company,over 12k locations if you include Family dollar and Deals

    Cons

    Very difficult to run lower volume stores,you never have payroll to run a store at bear minimum.The salary is sometimes not worth it.At 45k I was considered at the higher end of the spectrum but there was many weeks I had to work 7 days,12 hours just to survive ......that put me a almost minimum wage.

    Pros

    I WORK AT DEALS BECAUSE I AM GOING TO SCHOOL AND IT FLEXIBLE.

    Cons

    working with this company is like working under slave driver. you are over worked, the mangers get the credits and you are under paid.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to teach their store managers and assistant mangers how to treat their workers with integrity. They need to increase their wages.
