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

Pros

Plenty of hours
Get to work with amazing people

Cons

EVERYTHING !
Pay no where near equal to the work required
Constant schedule changing with barely any notice
Kiss your home life goodbye, you are now property of family dollar
My manager never hired males, leaving a whole store to be stocked by women (small ones at that)
Store managers are overworked , so they take it out on everyone else
They assume everyone is stealing
The higher people cut & add payroll whenever they get bored, so you literally may work every day one week and one the next.
I was hired as part time to avoid giving me benefits but was working 40+ hours EVERY week
My SM told me I get ONE off request ONCE a month for ONE DAY , and it may not be guaranteed.

Advice to Management

Start focusing on your employees and not the numbers. There is no reason a store manager works 78 hours and only get paid for 50. This company is not broke, so stop being penny pinchers ! Your workers are NOT slaves the turnover rate will only increase with the way you treat people.

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fair pay. Relatively stable until about 2008.

    Cons

    Poor communication between management and team members for many years. Transition to "blue" culture was way too slow. Mismanagement including overstaffing; there were several rounds of job cuts in my 15+ years there, including the one which eliminated my position.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new board of directors. Quit pretending you're serving families and just admit you're in it to make a buck.
