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

Pros

Loyal Customers, Good Benifits, Decent People

Cons

If an assistant is less than 1 yr experience they will take the fall alot for the stores Shrinkage. It also depends on the stores rep, fellow assist managers and the team work, WHere I worked There was backstabbing and sabotage by the other assistant who was there for 4 yrs and hasn't made management.

Advice to Management

When Ur suppost to b training an assistant for Manager role U should spend more than 8 hours with them for review of policies and how to run the business.. I recommend 20 hrs min..

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

    Pros

    The only pro would be that if you're an assistant manager, you're ALMOST always guarenteed 35+ hours

    Cons

    If you're an assistant manager, you get payed a little over 9 dollars per hour to start. The customers are mostly horrible. Management doesn't care about their employees and expects them to go above and beyond for such limited pay and recognition. You can spend every day cleaning the store top to bottom and the type of clientele that shops here will always ruin it immediately.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more if you want to keep them from stealing/leaving
