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

    Pros

    MMMM at this point do not have anything good to say about them

    Cons

    Managers are required to work 6 days a week for low pay. when you take the salary and divide the amount of hours worked.. you make much less than the hourly employees. scheduled 52 but worked 70-80 normally. NO FAMILY LIFE. YOUR life is at the store. Even the biggest retailer in the world treats it's managers better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give the stores more hours to run the stores and give the store manager at least every other weekend off. We are not slaves.
