very demanding position
Manager (Former Employee), Chicago, ILApril 13, 2014
Pros: i like the fact that there was always something to do
Cons: never being able to come home or have a day off without a phone call from work
everyday along with maintaining daily operations i has to deal with trying to catch thiefs due to fact that if the shrink level was to high i would lose part of my bonus for the year. but i did enjoy the employees that i had they would all do what was expected of them in a timely manner due to the training from myself.

Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee), Bradenton, FLApril 9, 2014
Pros: flexible
Cons: low pay
I was a cashier and stocker.
I learned how to use a cash register and it was some of my first chances to practice customer service.
Management was very nice and flexible.
Co-workers were friendly.
Hardest part of the job was the pay.
The best part was the management,

IT Business Analyst II - HR & Payroll (Former Employee), Matthews, NCApril 9, 2014
I enjoyed working at Family Dollar as an IT Business Analyst. It was a very challenging job that I enjoyed a great deal. Some of my responsibilites included gathering business requirements for small and large projects, writing/executing test scripts for all phases of the projects, training, and providing support documentaion to the end-users.

Unfortunately, – more... I was part of a huge company lay off on 04/02/14 but look forward to new challenges elsewhere. – less
