Pros: My weekly compensation with overtime and insurance.
Cons: Time spent away from my family.
Life with Family Dollar was consumed with clocking in. I enjoyed my job so I would show up early and leave late. Clock in on unscheduled days just to be apart of the everyday of Family Dollar. My typical work day would involve bank runs, verifying deposit slips, counting the money in the safe, unloading pallets, organizing the stock room, walking the floor of the store to make sure it is appealing to customers, and oversee my cashiers to make sure they are working efficiently and offer my help when needed. The most difficult part about my job was its toll it took on my home life. I was currently married at the time and I was more focus on savaging my store than my marriage which added to why I am divorce. My management role taught me how to function in a fast pace environment. Learning to make big decisions that not only affect me but my staff and sometimes even my customers. My supervisors were supportive to an extent. I look to them for ways to make better decisions concerning my staff. When I need a new perspective on handling insubordination I call in the big guns so that it never gets out of hand.
