    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you like moving all the time, this is the job for you. Management benefits are not bad, flexible days to take off.

    Cons

    You are on call like a doctor if you are general manager, and to much responsibility for one person, no room to breath.

    Advice to Management

    Putting more work on your management is not productive, when looking to increase sales, customer service and training of associates.

    Pros

    fast pace short days clean family environment

    Cons

    raises based on loss in the store like theft and damages. if people steal too much you dont get your raise each year, there are no other chances to receive one. low pay and not enough hours in the week, im full time and have not even been getting my 32 lately.

    Advice to Management

    pay your people better and maybe there wont be such a large turnover of employees.

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

    Pros

    Fast advancement opportunities. Accruing sick/vacation hours

    Cons

    You are expected for low pay to be almost a never ending presence in your store. Little support from upper management. Too much work for as cheap as they try to pay the employees that actually have put years and dedication in.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate/Appreciate your crew. Without a good crew you are responsible for every aspect and will be held accountable. There is a lot of delegation work that if isn't done adds up and prevents major project from being successful.
