    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Family Dollar Stores (New York, NY) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Long process..dragged on for 10 weeks..HAd to meet with RVP, LP HR and a phone interview with the GVP. Combination of face to face and phone screens/ received offer from recruiter. They act as if they are hiring you for CEO position. Overall process was grueling because of the amount of time it took before offer was extended.

    Interview Questions

    • Usual management type questions..Discuss your management style...describe a time when...Shrink   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very little negotiation..they present an offer,,you either accept or decline
