Featured Review

Current Employee - Store Manager

I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time

Pros

Prefer to promote from within so the dream of one day running the store is attainable for anyone just starting out. With the right attitude and strive to get the job done you can go any direction... inside the company.

Cons

Typical retail problems. People who can pass an interview but are horrible employees. Customers can be overbearing. Higher ups demands change to meet the market often piling new things on the already... overworked shoulders of salaried managers.

Cons

they aren't very easy to reach
