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 part-time for less than a 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!

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores part-time for less than a year

    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.
