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

    Pros

    A typical work day at family dollar consist of providing customer service to customers, unloading trucks and stocking shelves. I learned how family dollar unloads trucks and now I have experience in the stocking job field. The management was respectful but also very serious about what they wanted. My co-workers at family dollar were social and always got the job done. The hardest part of the job was meeting 1 U-boat an hour rule. The most enjoyable part of the job was staying busy.

    Cons

    Co-workers not caring about the job as much as wanting a paycheck for showing up.

    Work Life balance is difficult due to rotating schedule

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with great people, upper management is easy to talk to, goal oriented job

    Cons

    Store manager is clueless, a lot of work to get done daily so if one person doesn't pull their weight it affects the whole store, not enough budget hours to complete all tasks

    Advice to Management

    IF you're going to promote someone to a position of authority they should know what they're doing. Store manager is NOT a training position, if you reach that level it should be because you know what you're doing and you do it well.
    Recognize that adding another person to payroll would greatly help in getting tasks completed.
