    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Great diversity throughout the Company. Benefits have improved over the years.

    Cons

    No work life balance unless working at the Corporate Office. Too many tasks daily to accomplish in a realistic time frame from entry level positions and up. Training needs to be the emphasis and in some cases not in live business settings.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals with the support to accomplish deadlines.
