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

Pros

Pay, Benefits, Flexibility, Growing Company, Support from Superiors. It is always fun walking into work each day especially when you've taken the time to develop your team and know they can do all in your absence.

Cons

Too much of a focus on metrics. Life is not perfect and some of the expectations for shrink, truck unload times, etc. are unrealistic given the many number of variables that come into play every day in store operations.

Advice to Management

Get to know all your employees and show them you respect the work we all are doing. Do not be afraid to spruce up the stores a little bit - it would go a long way.

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get to serve the community by stocking the store as full as i can for their needs, and keeping it neat and tidy.

    Cons

    With the limited staff and labor hours the store is able to have, it has become very hard to accomplish all the tasks set before me.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of 3rd party workers. Train Family Dollar employees to do all facets of the job , increasing the payroll to handle the larger work load, and just maybe have a "set" time each week for each store for DC truck delivery, for better use of payroll.
