    Pros

    You meet different people and the customers are great..the crew people become a samll family

    Cons

    Family dollar do not care about the safety of their employees..during winter storms they expect you to stay open all day to get the sales. They want to be the only thing open so the sales will go thru the roof and do not care if the road conditions are unsafe for the people to drive..They only care about the sales and their competition which is ok but we have families at home...just some greedy people

    Advice to Management

    stop killing yourself for this store because they do not care about you well being

    Pros

    -Pretty good benefits.
    -Rather easy job.
    -Gain cash handling experience.
    -Gain experience interacting with customers.
    -Overall easy job if you can deal with rude customers on a consistent basis.

    Cons

    -Terrible pay.
    -Awful management.
    -Impossible to get time off without the manage getting mad at you.
    -Too few employees at each store.
    -Absolutely NO room for growth within the company.
    -They do NOT promote within like they say they do.
    -Usually don't get breaks when working 8 hour shifts because the manager doesn't want you to.
    -Managers are SO lazy and don't want to be on the cash register.
    -Don't actually finish your shift until an hour after your scheduled because management is lazy and doesn't want to take your register down so you can count it and go home.
    -They treat you like this job is the most important thing in your life.
    -They treat entry level employees like little kids. The only thing you're allowed to do on the register is scan items and void the last item scanned. Anything else needs the manager's key to be done. If you have worked as a cashier in other places you would know how annoying this is. It seems like I'm always calling a manager to the register to do something that an entry level employee should be able to do.
    -Cashiers MUST stay in view of the register at all times. This means if a customer asks you to show them where something is, you're not allowed to show them. You have to call the manager up from the back of the store just to show the customer where an item is located. I was told this by the DISTRICT MANAGER. I can't even show a customer where an item is without the manager? If that's not being treated like a little kid then I don't know what is.
    -The list goes on and on and on.......

    This has got to be the worst company I have ever worked for. It's a complete joke.

    Advice to Management

    This company desperately needs to start listening to entry level employees about things that needs to be improved or changed. This is awful. Just awful.
