    Replenishment Buyer/Allocator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Matthews, NC

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Matthews, NC).

    Interview

    I would like to recommend changes to the interview process. A second phone interview by a manager is needed in order to avoid wasted time for both parties. I experienced a bad interview with family dollar. A couple members of management were bothered because my experience was not equivalent to retail. A certain red head senior manager was horrible and immature displaying frequent eye rolls, scoffs, and behavior to try to belittle me. As a fellow human being, you should always show respect and display pleasant behavior no matter what your status is within a company. After all, your not curing cancer by any means. Showing common courtesy should be part of the company's profile. I feel like you should interview someone respectfully and simply not contact them for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Fort Myers, FL) in January 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process began with the first interview.
    My first interview was with the training manager, He was nice and polite even though he was very busy we spoke about my experience and of course my concerns etc. the interview lasted about 30 mins and at the end he let me know i had passed the first interview and he would be informing the district manager that he wanted to push me to the second interview.
    My second interview was the following week on a Monday which is there truck day, so again they were very busy. They were running a little off schedule because there were multiple interviews cramped together, (which made me nervous) When it was my turn I shook off my nerves and began my interview with the two district managers whom were present, It went by nice and easy we spoke about my experience again and my salary I was asking they gave my a little insider on what I would be doing if hired and we even spoke about our pets lol. Mostly every other person had atleast 15 years of management experience, to my 2 years but I was excited to get my call and here they were offering more then my desired salary.. needless to say i'm excited

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Dallas, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal interview that lasted about 10 minutes. Asked a few questions about my work ethic (not the typical standard questions) and manager hired me on the spot. This being my first real job was a breeze and as someone who struggled with being timid the lax environment of this interview made me feel comfortable.
