Family dollar is a great place to work. The people are friendly and hard work can be rewarded.

Deadlines are hard to meet due to the last minute nature of requests.

    Pros

    Salary, Paid Time Off, Flexibility

    Cons

    Very poor Upper Management structure and lack of understanding of what "actually" happens at the Store level. It is a very tight "Good Ole' Boy" network and individuals with valid opinions and ideas are often targeted for dismissal. Upper Management has a culture of protecting themselves at all cost, and will terminate subordinates as a gesture to Corporate that they are in control and to ease the potential that the Upper Manager's job will be in jeopardy. Stores maintain very unsafe working conditions, and again suggestions for improvements fall on deaf ears with Upper Management and Corporate Officers.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some actual time working in the Stores versus spending a few minutes during visits to a Store. Work some nights and weekends, especially in the Urban locations to fully understand what it is like to be a Family Dollar employee.
