    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really liked the people I worked with. Most were helpful and caring to employees and customers alike.

    Cons

    Not enough coverage during open hours, low pay, unsafe working conditions. The threat of robbery and retail fraud a daily concern. Managers alone for up to 5 hours at beginning of shifts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase payroll to individual stores, so they can hire people to be in stores to help customers.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I can't think of one redeeming quality for this company.

    Cons

    Pay is low, coverage in the stores is a joke. Theft is rampant, customers routinely walk out with more in their pockets than in a shopping bag. Employees safety is constantly at risk. Upper management only cares about stock performance and profit margins, employees are not a priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop leaving employees alone in stores. Be responsible for employee safety.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
