Good first job!
Customer Service and Sales Representative (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 13, 2015
Pros: helped me gain work experience.
Cons: unprofessional, lazy coworkers, unnecessary drama, and managers keep the store nasty now!
Overall my experience with Family Dollar was good. The only problem I had was how unprofessional my manager was. Besides the unprofessional behaviors that went on it was a good job especially for someone straight out of high school like myself. The job was easy, the hardest part for me was keeping a smile on my face when customers disrespected me. I enjoyed meeting new people, I have mad life long friends working for Family Dollar.

I loved my job!
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Meriden, CTFebruary 13, 2015
My days at work were fine. I enjoyed management and my fellow teammates company. I learned how to deal with rude customers in a calm and polite manners. The hardest part of the job was dealing with unpleasant customers, it makes you feel like you've done something wrong, but I was taught how to approach and solve that matter. I'm not sure what the most enjoyable part of my job was, because it was all around a pleasant work environment.

Nice
Cashier/Stock (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: nice breaks and good hour
Cons: health care
It ok to work there but you have to stand for longs hours if you like that and then you have to do 3 or 4 things at one time. And you would have to stock shelves and fix or put back merchaise that is left behind by customers.

Never a dull moment
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Silver City, NMFebruary 10, 2015
I had a couple coworkers who I absolutely loved to work with, but for a while it was just me and one other person working which was ludicrous. I enjoyed staying busy, but I loathed being paid so poorly for a job that multiple would need to accomplish but it was only myself who was capable of completing it.

Different Districts are very different
Assistant Store Manger (Former Employee), Edmond, OKFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: vacation time
Cons: low pay
It's a great place to work if they can just make all the districts the same. They put a lot on you for low pay. It has a very high turn over rate. You have to throw freight, run a register and do other tasks and mostly work alone. The hardest part of the job is trying to get things done and run a register when you are the only person in the store. The easiest is getting the paperwork done. Most enjoyable part is being able to help the customers.

A fun and exciting work environment
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Pascagoula, MSFebruary 9, 2015
Cons: not enough hours to work.
My day at work was always exciting I love to work there because the managers and co-workers where fun to be around and they always made it easy for me to relive any stress I had before coming to work. They was helpful with customers and helpful to me when a customer try to give me a hard time. The only hard part of my job was a lot of people coming into our store and thinking they can steel.

Pros: great customer cliental and retail at a fast pace.

A typical day at Family Dollar was fun because of my customers and the relationships I built with them. Seeing the loyal customers on a weekly basis made my job interesting and enjoyable. I did emjoy the work I did for Family Dollar however I didnt see any room for adcancement or promotion. I showed alot of interest in wanting to move up the ladder but management at my particular store didnt show any feedback into my inquiries.
