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

Pros

The company has a very warm and friendly work environment. The management team, especially the vice presidents and divisional vice presidents are very helpful and available to help employees troubleshoot issues. The work can range from routine to challenging and you have a sense that you are making a difference in your area. Your co-workers are very helpful and willing to help when you are challenged. The company does a great job of offering family friendly events and values the employee through yearly service awards and holiday appreciation dinners.

Cons

The pay structure is significantly lower in some of the areas than the comparable retail competitors, both in the town and nationally. There is not a lot of advancement for the employees to move across departments and many employees are looking for other positions. Senior management is unaware of the characteristics of their shoppers and does not understand the struggles they go through.

Advice to Management

Continue to invest heavily in your employees and develop talent better to promote the candidates that work for you
