Family Dollar is an absolutely HORRIBLE place to work if you want to be properly payed for what you have to do...

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Woonsocket, RI

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

ProsThe only pro would be that if you're an assistant manager, you're ALMOST always guarenteed 35+ hours

ConsIf you're an assistant manager, you get payed a little over 9 dollars per hour to start. The customers are mostly horrible. Management doesn't care about their employees and expects them to go above and beyond for such limited pay and recognition. You can spend every day cleaning the store top to bottom and the type of clientele that shops here will always ruin it immediately.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees more if you want to keep them from stealing/leaving

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
