I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

job security. someone was even allowed to stay after physically assaulting another team member in front of several members of upper management including a senior level director

Cons

little to no opportunity for advancement, especially if you are a female. more responsibilities and tasks are required then are specified in your job description (on a daily basis) without additional pay or advancement

    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.

    Business model is economically viability.

    Out dated methods, ancient technology, unhealthy leadership, oppressive culture, no work/life balance, production more important than people, VERY hierarchical, "Check the box" mentality, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild the entire leadership from the inside out.
