I worked at Family Dollar Stores part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Plenty of hours
Get to work with amazing people

Cons

EVERYTHING !
Pay no where near equal to the work required
Constant schedule changing with barely any notice
Kiss your home life goodbye, you are now property of family dollar
My manager never hired males, leaving a whole store to be stocked by women (small ones at that)
Store managers are overworked , so they take it out on everyone else
They assume everyone is stealing
The higher people cut & add payroll whenever they get bored, so you literally may work every day one week and one the next.
I was hired as part time to avoid giving me benefits but was working 40+ hours EVERY week
My SM told me I get ONE off request ONCE a month for ONE DAY , and it may not be guaranteed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start focusing on your employees and not the numbers. There is no reason a store manager works 78 hours and only get paid for 50. This company is not broke, so stop being penny pinchers ! Your workers are NOT slaves the turnover rate will only increase with the way you treat people.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of my coworkers were kind and willing to-do whatever it took to get the job done.

    Cons

    Never enough payroll to operate the store efficiently. They didn't care that people only received 8 or 10 hours. Because of this the turn over of employees was ridiculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being Greedy always working on your bonus. You have had some great people come through with a love of the company. The Greed is so crazy that the store is left unattended when the one on duty has yo use the rest room. At least keep 2 People at all times in the store. You can't provide awesome customer service from the register.
