Temporary Customer Service Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Ridgeland, MS (US)

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Family Dollar Stores in March 2014.

Interview Details I was called about 6 weeks after applying for a Temporary Customer Service Representative at a new location that was being built in my city. The manager interviewed me at a location in another city since the one in my city wasn't ready yet. She asked about my past experience, availability, salary requirements and why I left. I could tell by her her facial expressions regarding my answers that she did not approve so I don't expect a callback.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question

Store Manager Interview

Store Manager
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Family Dollar Stores in January 2010.

Interview Details Applied online and received an immediate response. Family Dollar stores in urban areas are meat markets and are constantly burning through managers. Contact was made by DM and interview was set up. Basic questions about management experience and willingness to do a "dirty job". Essentially, if you have a heartbeat, they tend to have you take your drug test right there. They are so cheap, the DM administers drug tests right there. After a background check, an offer is made.

Interview Question – Can you pee into this cup?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There isn't much room for negotiation. Family Dollar has pay rates assigned to each specific store. Even if you manage to get a little more money out of them, they will remove it from the payroll in your store. You'll have less hours for employees, so you will work more. Hence your extra $2000 a year actually ends up as an hourly pay cut
