Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits (Vacation, Sick/Family Leave, Insurance), Internal Promotion, Salary.

Cons

Depending on the department, you may/may not receive encouragement/support from upper management. This was my case. I had wonderful teammates, but a crappy department director and DVP. There was constant criticism and a lack of support. Overall, the company is an awesome place to work, but you have to make sure you're in the department best suited for you.

Advice to Management

Please make sure that team members are happy. That.Is.All.

    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.

    If you want things done correctly please staff the store.
