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

Pros

Benefits (Vacation, Sick/Family Leave, Insurance), Internal Promotion, Salary.

Cons

Depending on the department, you may/may not receive encouragement/support from upper management. This was my case. I had wonderful teammates, but a crappy department director and DVP. There was constant criticism and a lack of support. Overall, the company is an awesome place to work, but you have to make sure you're in the department best suited for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please make sure that team members are happy. That.Is.All.

    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 a 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.
