Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – March 14, 2017
They work you like dogs for minimum wage. going from regular store Associate to Assistant Store Manager they gave me a .25 Cent raise. they move people around from store to store to help all the other stores who are struggling with staff and theft. HIGH turn over rate.
Cashier / Stocker (Former Employee) – New Bedford, MA – August 10, 2016
I got to work counted my register. Began ringing out customers, stocked shells in between, priced products as well as put security tags on products. Helped customers when ever they needed something. Cleaned store, swept, mopped, unloaded merchandise. At end of shift counted draw and deposit for the day, dropped deposit in safe, closed store with assistant manager. Hardest part of job so much to do so little time, especially if your working with a co-worker that does not give their all.
Good Breaks, fun job.
Lack of benefits, often change in management and Untimely promotion.

Great company to work for. They are sales driven and energetic and helpful to their community. There are great benefits for management as well as compensation. It can get overwhelming at times IF you don't have a great team behind you backing you up.

My experience with Family Dollar was okay. Poor management from the higher people. Turnover rate was really high. Family dollar does not care about it's worker the more you do they weren't satisfied. One person had to do 7 different job or more. Our job was always held over our head,because of this the stress level was huge. The pay was horrible for all the work you had to do and the long hours If you have more than one child.this job isn't for you. I quit my job because of personal reason and my new boss was a trouble maker. I haven't worked since I quit my job. I'm not looking for management jobs anymore. The stress you have to go through isn't worth the headache and low pay.If you're not a manager you only work part time ranging from 19-25 hours a week. You can not pay bills with that. I had no trouble with co workers under me..everyone got alone until we got a new boss..There was opportunities to advance. I worked as a cashier for 6 months and became an ASM..so the fact that there are chances to advance was Awesome!
Retail Manager (Former Employee) – Midland, PA – December 17, 2016
store manager position is hard with very little support from upper management. Salary position usually working way more than the 52 hrs required more like 60 to 75 hrs per wk. You manage yourself more than you manage others.
work building is hot in summer and cold in the winter
Enjoyable place to work and assist pleasant people in the community and travelors stopping by for their needs.

Depending on the store and the location this could be a great place of work. But at the same time it could be horrible too. your life could become family dollar and nothing but family dollar especially if your management
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 26, 2017
I actually enjoyed this job. I just don't like the fact that I worked there for almost a year and I didn't get a raise for being there that long. I felt like it is extremely hard to stay in customer service. I'm
