Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Warsaw, KY – June 24, 2014
Pros: its a job
Cons: awful benefits
Horrible Company to work for. Overly worked staff and awful benefits. Truck days were awful. They would order so much stuff we didnt need and send it anyway. My co-workers were fun to work with, it was just the district CEO who wanted you to work for free and cut hours. The hardest part of the job was stocking, and the easiest was cash register.
Cashier (Former Employee), 12950 New Halls Ferry Rd. Florissant MO, 63033 – June 21, 2014
Pros: my co workers
Cons: the pay
A typical day at work involves working the cash register, stocking shelves, and helping customers find what they are looking for. I learned how to multitask while working at a fast but productive pace. My co-workers were hard working and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was being there by myself while we were extremely busy. The most – more... enjoyable part was interacting with the customers. – less
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Tyler, TX – June 20, 2014
Cons: no, breaks, no vacation, no healthcare
Fun workplace and a great environment. The hardest part of the job is sometimes you will have to do other peoples jobs as well. the most enjoyable part is that I get to be off in time to pick up my children from school daily.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee), Kenosha, WI – June 19, 2014
A typical day includes stocking shelves, fronting and facing the store and ringing up customers. I've learned useful time management skills and also how to calm down angry customers. I've also learned that I work well when all of the upper management works together and are in a good mood. The hardest part of the job is when a cashier calls off or a – more... truck shows up early or three days late. For me the most enjoyable part of the job is the customer service, I love meeting new people and helping them with things, it warms my heart to help others. – less

-Days are pretty long filled with wonderful customers who come in all sorts of good and active moods. - i learned to stay patient with them and they will stay the same with you if they have a complaint dont take it personal. -the management was ok only because at the store i worked in we rarely had a manager they didn't really last long in our store. - – more... i love my co-workers we made sure the store stayed up to company standards we worked hard not just for the store but for each other. -the hardest part was not having a manager at times and carrying they weight of the store without proper training. -the most enjoyable part was my employees and customers no matter what mood i was in someone did or said something to make me smile there is nothing like positive people. – less

Everyday at this company was like an adventure never knew what the day would consist of. Some days there was good customers and some days there was not but it was all fun seeing the customers come in upset and see them walk out with a smile.
Productive and fun workplace with outstanding employees
Cashier (Former Employee), Georgetown, KY – June 19, 2014
Pros: very flexable with work schedule
Cons: i didn't have any issues but some would say they didn't enjoy working weekends
I enjoyed working at Family Dollar. The staff was very pleasant to work with. I always had something to do and never got bored of my job. I enjoyed seeing the smiling faces of my customers as they left re-assuring me that I was doing my job as what was expected of me.
