Approves of CEO

Pros

In my position, i love the flexibility with my hours and i love that i work on my own. Plus the scenery is always different so you don't get bored

Cons

If you are obligated to one store (associate, assistant manager, etc.) It begins to work your nerves because there is not nearly enough payroll to get what they require done without creating chaos.

Advice to Management

Be ready to work!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    paid vacation; benefits; always challenging; family dollar is at the forefront of "discount stores" and how they present themselves.

    Cons

    grueling hours; unpredictable schedule; low payroll; work minimum 60 hours a week because of demands of store. at least 3 open to closes. not much work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    give enough payroll to the stores to have coverage from open to close with 2 people on if you care about safety and the merchandise inside.. we have to stay up front and run the register as managers and by the time our people come in its already time to recover and not much time to stock. the more coverage we have the quicker we can get stock out and the more sales we can achieve because of it... duhh!!!! get with it people.
