    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, submitted information and resume.
    Received a call one week later for appointment for interview
    I called multiple times to confirm appointment and to be sure it was that date
    Dressed up in a suit, waited patiently for 1-2 hours since manager was actually stocking that time, so she told me to wait.
    We sat down in her small office/security room for the interview.
    Handshake, typical introduction and asked questions like why should I be hired.
    Showed credentials and explained it would be my first job so it would be a good starting point. She agreed and from there did drug screening, showed resume and degrees to show that I'm competent at staying on the job/school.
    Issue came up with the hiring process since family dollar was bought out so I had to go in again and filled out the online application and come back on another day for it which is bad. Wastes pay and time for both employees and employers but it was beyond my managers control since the IDs system has changed completely because of the merge of dollar tree and family dollar.
