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 Management

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."

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros that comes to mind at this moment.

    Cons

    There is no balance between your work life and your personal life,they expect way too much from you with the little pay you get,unprofessional work environment. the stores are usually in the worst neighborhoods.this company will not appreciate you or anything you do. you can work an 8-10 hour shift with no breaks. the stores are usually understaffed and they could care less about a work life balance. You don't even get employee discounts! stay away and run for the hills!! this is hands down the worst company I have ever worked for in my life!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff to create more of a balance for staff,value and respect your staff!
