It is a good job if your single without children, and the money is great.

Store managers should make sure that their assistance can produce the work or else they are working alone. Its a good job it your single without a family.

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

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about them

    Cons

    Management is for a lack of reason not knowing the state laws. As a store manager i ran the store by myself 90% of the time there never was enough payroll to go around. Personal experiance had heart issues was told to reduce stress and they forced me not to work as soon as i said such. Needless to say they stopped answering phones and returning phone calls. TERRABLE COMPANY TO WORK FOR!!!!

    Advice to Management

    More payroll goes a long way, Treat your employees with respect and get rid of the voicemail system that does not work

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Qualified talent has the ability to run their own business with little interference from superiors. The sky is the limit for upward mobility to those that are not afraid of hard work and can truly run a successful operation.

    Cons

    Amount of time required on the job to be successful. People making core decisions have been removed from the front lines for too long to be as effective as they could be it they were to spend 2-4 weeks a year seeing what the business is really about at the store level.

    Advice to Management

    Retail is simple. Quit trying to reinvent the wheel.
