    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with; have the ability to interact with customers, who always make the day interesting.

    Cons

    Outdated software, inconsistency on hours (get what you need one week, you may or may not the next). Communication from the higher-ups down to the worker bees needs to be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees with incentives.....getting an in-store discount wouldn't hurt either.

    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.
