I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Pay, Benefits, Flexibility, Growing Company, Support from Superiors. It is always fun walking into work each day especially when you've taken the time to develop your team and know they can do all in your absence.

Cons

Too much of a focus on metrics. Life is not perfect and some of the expectations for shrink, truck unload times, etc. are unrealistic given the many number of variables that come into play every day in store operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get to know all your employees and show them you respect the work we all are doing. Do not be afraid to spruce up the stores a little bit - it would go a long way.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this company that I can see.

    Cons

    I was hired as a temp, worked one day and then was laid off. Managers hired way too many people. I did nothing wrong and I was not at fault. Also, the work is very strenuous and not worth the pay you are given. Based on rumors, managers are also treated poorly. Very unprofessional and not compassionate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to put your employees first, not your paycheck, and make sure the jobs are being done right. So much of my time was wasted with this company to have worked one day.
