Great place to work if you need some cash, don't mind manual labor, and look for a better job once you're hired.

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

Pros

Great benefits. Competitive pay. Friendly upper-management. Friendly co-workers (out of 500+ people, 10 might be unfriendly). Production pay.

Cons

Poor equipment. Work environment works against you. Poor retention. Dangerous work environment. Departments don't try to work together like they should.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan the work schedule better and try to have more effect on what is decided for your facility on a corporate level. Alot of the issues you face are ones you can stop from ever occurring. I also feel that it's unfair of you to ask so much of your workers when you know that there are several factors hindering them from meeting their Argent goals. Especially when those hindrances are ones you are more than happy to ignore. Remain friendly and close to your workers. Your attitudes and the way you treat your workers like friends or equals is probably the only thing keeping most people there.

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some employee perks and discounts.

    Cons

    Work alone a lot! Skeleton crew while expected to keep up on projects and new schematics while conducting day-to-day interaction with customers and vendors and maintenance of the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have traveling trainers. Increase the budget for stores to have a good size crew to work out freight and do projects. Budgets should not be a one size fits all stores in the district. Should go by sales and size of store and community.
