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

Pros

What I like about Family Dollar was the customers are nice (most of them). Great Health Benefits and strong sales company. Easy to move up to management stay in a management position for a lease a year and you can get any job with better pay.

Cons

Very low pay ($9 an hour) for assistant store manager and working 20-35 hours a week. No lunch breaks, no or little vacation time, and no employee discount. I was attracted by a former employee and what did family dollar do.........nothing. They do not care about their employee's safety at all. I HAD 7 RETAIL JOBS IN MY LIFE AND FAMILY DOLLAR IS THE WORST EMPLOYER I HAVE EVER WORK FOR AND KNOW.

Advice to Management

Better pay for management. Better security. Better payroll.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent, the people are great, and there is a lot to learn in distrbution. You can move up here without a degree. So if you are a hard worker that goes noticed on the team member level.

    Cons

    was promoted to an area manager after being a team member for 5 months. I thought I would recieve some training. Nothing. I was thrown out on the floor and expected to be perfect. I was constantly getting yelled at for nothing and had to work really long hours. Sometimes I would be there for 15 hours overnight. I worked hard for that company and felt like they just wanted to break me. I left there many days in tears and stress out.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. You have lost a lot of good people because of the way you treat them. People don't liked to get yelled at everyday. Listen to ideas, just don't dismiss them.

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

    Pros

    Thorough training provided, pay is decent

    Cons

    Unsanitary work environment, rude and disrespectful management, do not provide lunch breaks(even on 8-10 hour shifts) or 15 minute breaks unless you are a smoker, management stands around eating while ringing up customers, text and answer cell phones on sales floor, no form of loss prevention, unorganized, overall nightmare!
