    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Family Dollar treats their employees very well benefits and leave are awesome. They are willing to schedule around college class schedules, and around my volunteer EMT calls for out small rural town.

    Cons

    One of the very few cons is the pay for an assistant manager is lower than expected. I am hoping work ethic will improve the wage.

    Advice to Management

    Up your pay for management staff

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview

    Applied on Indeed which required a basic math assessment, received a phone call in a couple days asking for an interview. The interview was very casual, began with standard questions about work history and teamwork experiences. The interview quickly became personal and more relaxed. This was likely to gauge personality traits and fit for the culture. Final step was the administration of an at-home drug test, and I was notified that they would run a background check.
