Family Dollar is not a place for Family!

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Jonesville, LA

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

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

ConsInsufficient 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 Senior ManagementSomeone 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
