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

    Pros

    There is literally no pros on working for this company as an employee, it's just a huge mess as a store.

    Cons

    They have a monthly budget which is why the stores run as microstores. Huge theft, robberies, management structure is a failure. You have to be very desperate to work for them. You will regret working for them in one month time.

    Advice to Management

    Monthly budget and lack of management structure.. the company is a huge failure. It's so ridiculous that they brand themselves as a competitor for Walmart when they can't even have full staff employees working at rush hour times.

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

    Pros

    The company offers competitive competing and the ability to receive monetary values for winning. The people as far as team members and customers are AMAZING!

    Cons

    Upper management will chew you up and spit you out. They don't care about you at all and offer zero support. No matter what you put into the company or how much you turn a store around and produce sales they just don't give a damn.

    Advice to Management

    The money is good but the values suck!

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Almost every employee can realistic make it to the store manager level if they just do what they are supposed to do.

    Cons

    Very high turnover. Not enough help. Unrealistic expectations. Your job can hinge on things you can't control.

    Your managers need more formalized training.
