    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Lansing, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I interviewed with the manager who was very nice, very professional, very skilled, very prompt, very clear, veryy concise, very accomodating. It was very laid back. I had to take a drug test which I wasn't at all concerned about since I don't do drugs. I also had to have a background check done. I wasn't worried about that either because I am a law-abiding citizen.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Carlisle, AR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a store manager from a different location, who was the mother in law of my store manager. My store manager had no prior interviewing or hiring experience so she sat in on the process but mainly just observed. It went ok although both seemed to be a bit rude and not very well versed with customer service skills and neither seemed very happy to be there that day.

    Very relaxed interview process. They didn't ask many questions and also didnt pry into my work history or anything. Pretty standard interview process, I would even describe it as minimal.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Livonia, MI) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had to take a questionnaire that was a bit lengthy. Got a call a few days later asking if I wanted to come in for an interview the next day. I did. Very basic interview, no trick questions. Will ask you why you left your lost job if you did quit, just say it was for personal reasons if you left it because it was a bad job. Asked me if I live close enough to make it to work on time without hassles. Took a drug test right there in the store with some instant drug testing thing. Offered a starting wage of 7.45/hr, accepted, and I will start working immediately after they get my background check results in. I got along well with my interviewer and am overall looking forward to my new job.
