I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than a year)

Pros

What I like about Family Dollar was the customers are nice (most of them). Great Health Benefits and strong sales company. Easy to move up to management stay in a management position for a lease a year and you can get any job with better pay.

Cons

Very low pay ($9 an hour) for assistant store manager and working 20-35 hours a week. No lunch breaks, no or little vacation time, and no employee discount. I was attracted by a former employee and what did family dollar do.........nothing. They do not care about their employee's safety at all. I HAD 7 RETAIL JOBS IN MY LIFE AND FAMILY DOLLAR IS THE WORST EMPLOYER I HAVE EVER WORK FOR AND KNOW.

Advice to Management

Better pay for management. Better security. Better payroll.

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

    Pros

    Flexible with your schedule, good learning experience.

    Cons

    Very cheap company, not much room for advancement. Expect you to work hard and the harder you work the less it seems they appreciate you. It seems like everyone in upper management works on a bonus system controlling strict labor costs and like they say s..t rolls down hill and effects the people working on store level and also effects customer service.

    Advice to Management

    The people that make this company are the hard working people at store level. Bonus' for hourly workers and more appreciation would increase moral. Give stores more scheduled hours for employees so customers wouldn't have to wait in long lines and the normal day to day operations of having stores clean and stocked would be addressed and sales would increase. Health benefits are to costly for everyday hourly full time employees.
