Decent workplace, good hours, fun co-workers
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Greensboro, GA – April 16, 2016
Family Dollar was my first job right out of high school and I began as a cashier. Shortly after almost a year of working there, I was promoted to key holder and then under a year later I was promoted to assistant manager. The advancement is there. My particular location had very rough District Managers that would not give raises based on performance, even if the Store Manager requested it. I enjoyed a lot of the co-workers I had over my 4.5 years there and I very much enjoyed being able to take on management duties. Typical days at this establishment consisted of high foot traffic, especially on the weekends. As long as you can multitask, you'll be just fine. I think the hardest part of the job was having to discipline certain employees due to their high amount of sensitivity and my military mentality. I always ran a tight ship and made sure that everyone under my supervision had tasks to complete. A big con for me was being expected to spend every holiday away from my family.
Tending to great customers, a lot of work
Poor higher management, no proper compensation, over working for less than what you're putting in
