    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (West Palm Beach, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke with district manager and
    RVP, the interview process took a few weeks. It may have taken a few weeks but it was worth the wait. You must be confident in yourself and what you will bring to the table. Make sure to research the company, and it's needs and how you will benefit as an asset. The stores have high shrink, so that's the number one issue that needs to be addressed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was approached by a dm of Family Dollar shortly after I left dollar tree. He told me he was looking strong individuals with decent retail background and wanted to know if I was interested in a job with Family Dollar. At the face to face interview, I gave him my background and he seemed interested. I was asked several questions on my knowledge of retail management. When I was asked about my experience in my previous retail job, I told him exactly how I felt about the very long hours and the almost zero family time. He told me that if I came to Family Dollar, things would be different. When I got home, I looked up employee reviews on Family Dollar and every single store manager that replied told the same exact story I experienced at Dollar Tree. Long hours, pay averaging about 9 dollars an hour after all of the hours worked and no family life. I called the dm back and asked him to take me off the consideration list.

    Interview Questions

    • How did I manage my hours that was allotted to the store to give to employees.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2015.

    You meet with a lot of people. District Manager, HR, LP, VP. All very thorough, open, honest, good conversations. I liked what they had to say about where the company was going and why they are successful here and what they are looking for to build on that success. The VP stated he is building the best team in retail and they are looking only for the most talented and hungry for success type people. Definitely a person you want to work for every day.
