    I worked at Family Dollar Stores as an intern (less than an 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.
