No opinion of CEO

I worked at Family Dollar Stores as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people.
Great environment, when upper management were away.
Enjoyed job.

Cons

Management was over-bearing.
Too many rules.
Try to overload lower level employees.

Advice to Management

Give your interns and lower level employees a chance, many of us knew more and had more experience than those higher up on the food chain.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time

    Pros

    Running the store on your own, decent people to work with (since you hired them yourself)

    Cons

    LOOOOOONG Hours as a store manager, little payroll, customers who would steal right in front of you and you cant stop them, DM was great, above them, idiots (have they EVER had to run a store?)

    Advice to Management

    Anyone who is overseeing (RVP, LP, etc) districts, step into our shoes! Family Dollar has more stores in less than desirable locations than any other retailer besides Dollar General. Can you run a store with 1.3 shrink? Try it, just for a month!
