    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.

    It was fairly easy the head manager ask me a few questions and told me what I was going to be doing. So overall it was a pretty easy not to much to say because she just asked me a few questions I'm guessing to see if I was honest and hired me on the spot took the drug test and all that day

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Houston, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Was pretty easy straight forward and serious no jokes straight to the point of what is needed and what isn't for the position. But one needs to be ready if they do ask if you'd give your time to that job position which is good and bad tho but was straight forward about it.

    Replenishment Buyer/Allocator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Matthews, NC
    No Offer
    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.
