    IMPORT REPLENISHMENT PLANNER Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Matthews, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Matthews, NC).

    Interview

    I applied online, had a phone interview with HR, came in and took a basic purchasing/ math assessment and had four thirty minute interview sessions with approx 10 managers. I followed up two weeks later and was asked to come back in and meet with four more managers in two thirty minute interviews, which I did. I was told that I would hear back within 2 weeks...the recruiter was very responsive compared to some I have worked with

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parkersburg, WV
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Parkersburg, WV) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Went to a local store 15 minutes before the interview. The interviewer had left and was supposed to be back within a few minutes. They did not return, talked to 2 other managers and then was asked to come back a couple hours later. I did but the interviewer was on a long conference call. I kind of interviewed with the manager I had spoke to before, he told me all about what to expect and the mangers job I had applied for was part time at minimum wage to start. This was extremely disappointing and they asked if I could come back again but I didn't.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked me if I had a family and if spending time with them was important. He then commented that Family Dollar requires managers to work a minimum of 52 hours a week with only Sundays off.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Before the store manager even interviewed me, she handed me a drug test and told me she wouldn't interview me until after the drug test, so I didn't waste her time.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Portland, CT) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initially I applied online. I received a call from the assistant manager a day after I submitted the application to come in for an interview. The assistant manager was the person conducting the interview on his day off (they were understaffed). The interviewer only asked me a few basic questions. It was mostly comprised of him talking about the job description and duties of the job itself. I was told there would be a second round of interviews with the manager; however I never received a call back, so I’m assuming I didn't get the job.

    Interview

    Interview was quick. Brought you in, ask the basic questions, and then I was hired. They did a background test, and you had to go through online training courses. It was kind of tedious but it was okay.
