Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Fayetteville, NC
Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Fayetteville, NC

I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Co-workers tend to be enjoyable to work with
-Smaller stores, so customer and employee relationships tend to be more personal and friendly

Cons

-Store manager (and district) can make or break your experience
-Rude, entitled customers (it's retail)
-Mediocre pay
-Staff of 2 persons unless it's a truck day (understaffed)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more notice to your employees. Customers are important in retail, but so are employees. A lot of dissatisfied employees can make for a lot of dissatisfied customers.

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

    Pros

    Unlike convenience stores, you have the ILLUSION of safety.

    Cons

    Horrible pay for associates and ASMs, severely understaffed (this place is by far the worst about staffing I've ever worked), notorious for locations in bad parts of cities (to get tax breaks), more notorious for robberies, no discounts, no benefits, no respect, rude customers, high load of responsibilities, no place to "move up" in the company...try other places to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting corners, especially in terms of store security. This is a company that only thrives during a bad economy.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores

    Pros

    It was a job. That's it.

    Cons

    No help cause they don't give hours. Usually only 2 people in the store at a time no matter how busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want things done correctly please staff the store.
