MY TYPICAL DAY AT WORK, IS VERY STRESSFUL.MANAGER IS VERY DISRESPECTFUL TOWARDS EMPLOYEES. MY CO-WORKERS ARE VERY RESPECTFUL AT TIMES, VERY HELPFUL.THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS WHEN THE STORE MANAGER IS PRESENT MAKING THE JOB HARDER BY BEING DISRESPECTFUL, CALLING NAMES ETC.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – August 27, 2014
A typical day at work was running the store, speaking with my costumers, cleaning, making sure the store was well stocked and that all my customers where being helped with. I learned to be more responsible, reliable and dependable. I got along very well with my co-workers and managers, when we had an issue we worked well with one another and always – more... listened to one another's ides. The hardest part of the job is making sure that all the cashiers had all the correct amount of money in their registers. The most enjoyable part of working was seeing my customers leave with a smile and that they were well satisfied with the services that we provided them with. – less

Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Menasha, WI – August 26, 2014
I enjoy working at Family Dollar, and the team members are great. The benefits however aren't, neither is the pay. Yet, I've learned a great deal about internal operations, and how to handle stressful situations. The team members are also great to get along with, and the hours are flexible.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Mesquite, TX – August 26, 2014
Everyone in the store helps cart and stock items from truck on delivery day. Everyone was accountable for loss prevention survey. My co-workers were very competitive. The management did not report the roof leak that was pooling in the ceiling tiles until a ceiling tile burst during store hours. The hardest part was mopping the store which I had not – more... done before and everyone was expected to do. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting a paycheck to take home and talking to customers as a cashier. – less
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Vienna, GA – August 26, 2014
Pros: meeting new people
Cons: lack of hours
Family dollar is a productive yet exciting job. There's always something to do or things that could be done. I enjoy meeting and talking to all of the new and consistent customers. Even on a busy day its not a difficult job. The only issue I have now with Family dollar is the lack of hours I receive. I only get 15 hours a week.
Sales Associate/ Cashier (Former Employee), Milwaukee, WI – August 25, 2014
Pros: there was never a boring day
Cons: very aggressive customers
A typical day at Family Dollar from my experience was bit chaotic. I learned most of all how to manage a workplace wit very little order. The management was honestly poor and neglectful at times, but my co-workers were decent people for the most part. The hardest part of this job was constantly trying to maintain the sales floor. The most enjoyable – more... aspect of the job was the interactions I shared wit so many customers. – less
