I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company does not have any debt. Prices are reasonable. Stock is well replenished. Customer service is a stressed standard.

Cons

Profitability has decreased. One of the reasons is because the company sells cigarettes now which do not generate a profit. The company keeps cutting hours in the stores which not only is unsafe due to an employee working alone for about 4 hours a day but also removes the ability to "manage."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are too many "chiefs," Reduce some of the upper management and reinvest it into hours for staffing. Do not sell cigarettes which do not belong in a store called "Family."
