    I have been working at Family Dollar Stores full-time

    Pros

    *My store manager and coworkers are great *The majority of customers are very nice and patient *Paid weekly *The job itself is easy

    Cons

    *No matter what your job title is, everyone does the same job from the cashiers to the store manager *Everyone is overworked for little pay *There is simply no time to do everything needed because of a lack of employees *Theft can be a problem *Not a lot of hours (Full time employees don't always get 40hrs) *Breaks are a joke - you have to finagle a 15-30 min break whenever you can (but there are many days you don't get a break due to lack of employees to cover you)
