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

Pros

-Co-workers tend to be enjoyable to work with
-Smaller stores, so customer and employee relationships tend to be more personal and friendly

Cons

-Store manager (and district) can make or break your experience
-Rude, entitled customers (it's retail)
-Mediocre pay
-Staff of 2 persons unless it's a truck day (understaffed)

Advice to Management

Take more notice to your employees. Customers are important in retail, but so are employees. A lot of dissatisfied employees can make for a lot of dissatisfied customers.

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

    Pros

    customers are great, the prices are reasonable. no pros for being an employee. family dollar is the worse company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    stores are ran on an unrealistic budget. most of the time 1 person for hours. but you're expected to run the register, keep your eye on shoplifters, do price changes, set up displays, and process freight...only can be done if you clone yourself 10 times

    Advice to Management

    insulting your employees will only make them work less and be less dedicated. if you want respect you must give it. telling the entire district your feelings about another employee is very unprofessional.
