I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

Better pay for management. Better security. Better payroll.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can learn about people in poor neighbrhoods.Can move up from asst manager to manager quick due to turnover and lack of security for employes.

    Cons

    Management 80 or more hours a week .Not enough time to get all done they request.Most cashiers get more in food stamps then what they make in a month.You have about 5 hours to recver the store at night By the time you get 1/2 done and start the other half the half you finished is already a wreck. To many people running out the door.To many prostitutes,druggies,drug dealers very unsafe stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More cameras,more security,more payroll, should be a minimum of 2 people in store at all times.If Mr.Levine was so about family he would let his managers actually work 52 hours a week so they could be with theirs.
