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

    Pros

    You can work as many hours as you'd like since there always seems to be a shortage of workers. You are almost always guaranteed 40 hours plus overtime. Regular 8 hour shifts.

    Cons

    Family Dollar never closes and when they do, it is only select stores. Have to work most holidays if not all. Starting pay for assistant manager not great.
