    I worked at Family Dollar Stores

    Pros

    HR tries very hard to change corporate culture. Employee appreciation month included bagels & cream cheese for all employees. Also catered lunch from Mac's speed shop.

    Cons

    Revolving door, employees are constantly getting fired throughout the company, mid & upper level management doesn't want to face or deal with making any positive improvements on processes based on negative feedback. No room for growth or opportunity for advancement within the organization. Technology is a joke. Vacation time given is way below industry standard with no additional days given until 7 yrs of service or promotion. But remember...no opportunity for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making wasteful decisions on the fly. Back up the timing on ads to reduce the amount of costly mistakes that are hitting the bottom line. Overall markdown process needs to be vastly improved with corporate guidelines in place I.E. set markdown dates for all markdown types with a corporate calendar created at least 6 months out, corporate cadence of markdown depth, corporate markdown selling rules

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are okay. The MINIMUM you work is 30hrs a week. You get paid extra if you work on the Holidays such as Easter and Christmas.

    Cons

    Maybe its just my store, but there's no potlucks, breaks, gift exchanges during the holidays-NO FUN WHATSOVER. Hate how the store closes @ 10pm. Family Dollar attracts Varieties of low class customers such as- crackheads, thieves, homeless people and ghetto people, so you have to be prepared to handle that. THERE ARE NO RAISES,There are employees who have been working here for over 4 years and still getting paid the same. Don't be surprised if your store gets robbed, there has been a few! The store is DRAINING of ENERGY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make Family Dollar a more FUN place to work. Create contests sometimes. Throw Potlucks every once in a while! otherwise if employees are not encouraged, they are going to want to quit!
