No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Customers. If you're a people person, it helps make it fun.

    Cons

    Dangerous. In spite of many robberies, they still schedule people alone in the store. In some cases, up to 5 hours at a time. Unrealistic time goals for putting out merchandise. Firing managers from high theft stores without allowing payroll for adequate coverage
    .

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying lip service to safety & increase payroll.
