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

Pros

My individual team was very talented.

Cons

Goals and Objectives were unclear. Direction changed weekly. Lack of proffesionalism even at the Director level. Directors do not know how to lead, they cause more chaos that benefit. No one is forward thinking, its a very reactive business specifically the transportation department. Management is absolutely horrible. You would not know that you are working in a proffesional environment.

Advice to Management

Develop your people. Train your managers so that they can lead the organization. Treat everyone fair with respect.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Had wonderful co-workers and in store Management.

    Cons

    Other area stores in a negative competition with each other. I.E. Making bad reports against one another to GM. GM expects you to work no matter your health level. I once had to work with double walking pneumonia and ear infections.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate your 3rd key and other CSR's, they will go to the ends of the earth to help you if you are a Team leader, not a 'do as I say not as I do' type. Be easy going while still expecting top notch. And understand your employee's have a life at home, that is ultimately why they are working with you.

    There are no good reason.

    Cons

    Overworked , under paid, treated like a dog. Conflict of interest when DM and Traning manager are best friends. takes away subjectivity and profesionalism!

    Advice to Management

    It is illegal to work people over 60-70 hours a week for way under minimum pay!
