    Pros

    Family Dollar is about the customer which makes me about the customer. We keep them happy with great value and service. Opportunity is outstanding if you are looking for advancing with the company. District managers have a lot of knowledge as well SMs in my district. If you are willing to dedicate yourself you are sure enough to be successful.

    Cons

    You must be flexible or you will break.

    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work hard, prove yourself , Focus your work dont let drama or your personal issues follow you threw work. Ive been working for my store for only a month and im now training for assistant store manager.. There is never no opportunities you just gotta wrk and prove yourself.!

    Cons

    Having 1 bad crew member can mess up the flow of truck day and freight pushing And slow cashiers can be a pain.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is I feel that running the store with the absolute best crew members can change the stores ratings. You gotta think of it as a nba team and were at draft night. You want the best team possible. So by that I feel you guys need to start reading resumes and actually hire people that has high retail exp.
