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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Loyal Customers, Good Benifits, Decent People

    Cons

    If an assistant is less than 1 yr experience they will take the fall alot for the stores Shrinkage. It also depends on the stores rep, fellow assist managers and the team work, WHere I worked There was backstabbing and sabotage by the other assistant who was there for 4 yrs and hasn't made management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When Ur suppost to b training an assistant for Manager role U should spend more than 8 hours with them for review of policies and how to run the business.. I recommend 20 hrs min..
