Pros

job security. someone was even allowed to stay after physically assaulting another team member in front of several members of upper management including a senior level director

Cons

little to no opportunity for advancement, especially if you are a female. more responsibilities and tasks are required then are specified in your job description (on a daily basis) without additional pay or advancement

    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 Management

    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!

    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 Management

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