I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time

Pros

Running the store on your own, decent people to work with (since you hired them yourself)

Cons

LOOOOOONG Hours as a store manager, little payroll, customers who would steal right in front of you and you cant stop them, DM was great, above them, idiots (have they EVER had to run a store?)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Anyone who is overseeing (RVP, LP, etc) districts, step into our shoes! Family Dollar has more stores in less than desirable locations than any other retailer besides Dollar General. Can you run a store with 1.3 shrink? Try it, just for a month!

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores

    Pros

    The pay, the customers. and the work environment.

    Cons

    They work you like you have no life outside there, they are not flexible at all it's basically not their problem, managers put all the work on asst. managers and take credit for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe there should be more workshops for customer service and management skills.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Start at a good pay, its a very nice concept, very quick, Flexible schedule

    Cons

    I don't really know who the CEO is, and we hardly had a contact nor support with them, very boring, the assistant managers didn't know anything, getting robbed and not being able to do anything and cameras hardly worked, benefits weren't good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more support!
