I worked at Family Dollar Stores as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Great people.
Great environment, when upper management were away.
Enjoyed job.

Cons

Management was over-bearing.
Too many rules.
Try to overload lower level employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your interns and lower level employees a chance, many of us knew more and had more experience than those higher up on the food chain.

    Pros

    Customers are very nice, they appreciate the prices and some name brands.

    Cons

    Always watching for shoplifters. Company added cigarettes which was a bad idea; it takes away from getting the job done.. Every time you turn around there is some unhealthy smoker waiting to check out their smokes. You can't put out merchandise or straighten the store properly. Upper mgmt. expects too much. Everyone was afraid of being fired; including the store mgr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the cigarettes!!! No profit on them anyway! Majority of smokers do not buy anything else!
    Get more payroll to staff the store and get everything done! Too many back stabbers.
