I have been working at Family Dollar Stores part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice people, a good learning experience, pay every week.

Cons

Unrealistic work expectations (especially for cashiers), often keeps you past your scheduled leave, acts as though you're on-call, treats you as though you're lazy for taking allowed breaks, random schedule changes in the week, grumpy management, and small teams because it sucks so badly that most employees leave.

Advice to Management

Change your expectations for the lower employees, and add more workers in-store at a time if you want so much work done. If you have two employees in the store, supervisor and cashier, and you split the store in half between them, the cashier won't get as much done as the supervisor does, because the cashier has the register to work along with their half of the store. Stop expecting that they do. Make your schedules a little more strong, and if you do have to change them in the week, tell everyone in advance. Stop overloading your stores with product they can't put out, and then wondering why the store room is always packed to the ceiling. Make it mandatory for 3 employees to be in the store at one time if you ever want anything done. It's too busy to leave up to two people.
