I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time for more than 3 years


Great company to start out with if you are right out of college. If you know the right people, you can gain a lot of hands on experience and it is easy to move between departments at the corporate office if you still don't have a career path.


Benefits are lacking compared to most companies and compensation is lacking. While it is promoted that their is room for growth at the company that is not the case. Many promotions are awarded to managers friends and not employees who can actually do the job. Non-exempt employees have very little benefits. Upper management is constantly changing and middle management is not necessarily experienced.
