    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work for Family Dollar. The training is terrible, the way senior management treats you is terrible. The bosses think they know everything. Employees are not aloud to make suggestions ,Many of the district managers would not make it as managers in t other companies. If they keep treating employees they way they do there will be no employees working at there stores. They need to listen to managers and district manager if they are to exceed. Ideas come from a lot of places and not listing is your downfall.

    Cons

    They talk about customer Service,but they treat there employees just the way they don't want us to treat customers.

    Advice to Management

    If You want employees to treat customer in a nice way ,then you are sending a wrong message they way you treat employees.

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

    Pros

    good experience for retail management fast paced

    Cons

    payed for 52 hours, never worked less then 72 DM's are impossible to get a hold of if you need assistance Managers not paid overtime and 98% of your work is non executive work (illegal) company can care less about you, they will fire you in a heart beat. 2 employees in store at a time, no payroll (shrink and safety issue) I can go on but you get the point

    Advice to Management

    care a little about your team members. Most bust there butt for you and get no appreciation. turnover is horrible so it shows this is a fact. Also, pay managers overtime and stop breaking the law (multitude of lawsuits prove this as well)
