Great opportunities, if you're willing to work 60, 70, 80+ hour weeks nonstop with little reward

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

Pros

Decent salary for Managers, if they work enough hours

Cons

Little culture or values, Fires women because they're pregnant or have children, tries to get around earned bonuses, no free time, on call constantly, little to no management on higher up levels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a consistant brand with strong family values as the company name suggests, and you'll have better loyalty from employees.

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

    Pros

    SOME of the employees that work there are very hard workers just like I was and that was a pro that they were willing to do anything it took to try and keep up with the disorganization and poor work environment.

    Cons

    Poor payroll, Not enough security or payroll to catch shoplifters and if your inventory is bad they automatically think you weren't trying to stop shoplifters, put untrained managers in a store to run it, district managers NEVER come and help make things better..i.e. when you NEED more security in a store that shrinks out EVERY year and you BEG for more payroll or security to help solve the inventory problems along with they make you do that as well as the ONLY assistant or store manager in the store for 4-6 HOURS straight ALONE.. not a safe environment for employees. As well as catching all of the shoplifters, ringing up all the customers, providing GREAT customer service and putting out freight all at the same time for the MAJORITY of the shift.. way too much work overload on managers as well as the blame getting put on the WHOLE staff for the THIRD year in a row that the store shrinks out--instead of CHANGING things, they discharge the WHOLE staff AGAIN. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of trying to cover yourself, try helping to SOLVE the situation before it gets out of hand. MORE PAYROLL, MORE SECURITY. QUIT BEING CHEAP!
