    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Had wonderful co-workers and in store Management.

    Cons

    Other area stores in a negative competition with each other. I.E. Making bad reports against one another to GM. GM expects you to work no matter your health level. I once had to work with double walking pneumonia and ear infections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't underestimate your 3rd key and other CSR's, they will go to the ends of the earth to help you if you are a Team leader, not a 'do as I say not as I do' type. Be easy going while still expecting top notch. And understand your employee's have a life at home, that is ultimately why they are working with you.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Perfect job for someone that has no other commitments.

    Cons

    Insufficient training time for any level of employment. Not enough employees or payroll to get the job done. Store Manager is required to work six days a week, if the store is in good shape. If it's not, then you have to work seven days a week until it is up to standards. Store Manager is required to cover shifts, in event of call-ins. There were days that I made barely above minimum wage as a Store Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone in the Home Office needs to realize that Store Managers are not married to Family Dollar and need to have time to relax. Putting six or seven days a week into a business that is not their own is a lot to ask for the pay.
