It is a ok place to work

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time for less than a year

ProsFlexible with your schedule, good learning experience.

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
