Current Employee - Cashier in London, KY

I have been working at Family Dollar Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Meeting and Greeting new people daily, & offering lower prices to low income family's

Cons

Expect way to much out of employees, Daily tasks are daunting! District Managers are Power Hungry & have no respect for there amazing store managers & Cashiers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of 3rd party companies such as Drive-line to setup new items or reset stores & teach store employees to do this themselves to free up budget's & allow extra payroll for busy times, Allow Cashier's to have drinks readily available to them behind the check-out, Im sure any customer wouldn't complain about an employee having something to drink! Abolish the cover Tattoo policy, I personally think it's discrimination unless the tattoo's are offensive, Allow cashier's to Void more than just the last item scanned, this would free up alot more of mgmt's time running back and fourth for scanning errors that a cashier could easily correct, Install Anti-Theft alarms which could eliminate shrink & be a very wise long term investment, have CCTV behind the check-out so cashiers could watch suspicious activity again helping reduce shrink.

    Pros

    There are no good reason.

    Cons

    Overworked , under paid, treated like a dog. Conflict of interest when DM and Traning manager are best friends. takes away subjectivity and profesionalism!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is illegal to work people over 60-70 hours a week for way under minimum pay!

    Pros

    My individual team was very talented.

    Cons

    Goals and Objectives were unclear. Direction changed weekly. Lack of proffesionalism even at the Director level. Directors do not know how to lead, they cause more chaos that benefit. No one is forward thinking, its a very reactive business specifically the transportation department. Management is absolutely horrible. You would not know that you are working in a proffesional environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your people. Train your managers so that they can lead the organization. Treat everyone fair with respect.
