This information about the Vacation & Paid Time Off benefit at Family Dollar Stores is the result of research by Glassdoor editorial staff, and was not provided directly by a representative of Family Dollar Stores. The description here may not reflect the current Family Dollar Stores Vacation & Paid Time Off benefit.
You only get vacation time 30 hours and you'll lose them at the end of the year if you don't use them
1 week a year for less than 9 years then 1 week extra year for incremental 5 plus year
You can't use time off, sick pay or vacation, and it is stolen from you when you leave.
You get it all up front in February every year. One week the first year (unless you were hired in the last quarter of the previous year, then it’s only 3 days for the entire next year), 2 weeks from year two, and 3 weeks after 5 years.
You can ever take a day off because you can't hire employees to cover your shift or help run the store so any time you get is not used
They makeup excuses for needing you to not take it
You do get vacation if your full time. Good luck trying to use it tho. Theres always an excuse why it cant be used.
PTO is 5 days a year which isn't awful
Paid time off is useless when there is no one to cover for you so your vacation is not approved.
Had vacation time when I left they took the sick time even though I feel like it was earned already
