LONG DAYS
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Muskogee, OKJune 16, 2015
TERRIBLE STORE, COULD NOT WORK ENOUGH HOURS A DAY TO CLEAN UP THE MESS LEFT BEHIND. MEETING NEW PEOPLE WAS ALWAYS FUN, BUT THE STORE WAS JUST SO DIRTY, AND I DID NOT LIKE THE SAFE BEING OUT IN THE OPEN IN SUCH A RUN DOWN PART OF TOWN.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Grandy, NCJune 16, 2015
I worked for Family Dollar for 1 year, in 3 different locations. at my last location the store manager was extremely rude to the customers, so much so that they requested that she be released from that title. She did not follow corporate rules as far as scheduling go, and family dollar has the open door policy. When trying to use that open door policy I was completely ignored by not only my Store Manager, but my District manager as well as the Regional Manager. I had contacted my Human Resources Dept and unfortunately nothing was resolved. Ultimately after sacrificing a year of my life I chose to leave the company and start fresh. To anyone that may be interested in the Assistant Store Manager position, I would keep looking for other employment. In that position you will be overlooked and ignored.

A typical day at family dollar is running the register and stocking. I also recover any aisles that may need it. I enjoy my management team and also my co-workers.

Typical day at work
Store Clerk (Former Employee), Pembroke Pines, FLJune 12, 2015
Pros: I learn how to be a cashier
Cons: N/A
I come in the morning and i put merchandise on the shelves and make the store look presentable. When a customer is at the counter, I greet them and cash them out. I really enjoyed my time at Family Dollar because i met a lot of different people and I got to know them by them coming to the store frequent because of my customer service skills. I also clean up at the end of the day so that in the morning there would not be so much hard work to do.

Productive yet Unorganized workplace
Cashier (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJune 12, 2015
Pros: The weekly pay
Cons: No Lunch break only upon request
Family Dollar was not the best job. The managers did their jobs correctly but the Assistant Managers never really work to the best of their ability. Although the cashiers seemed to work harder then the Assistants on some days.

Physically demanding
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Streator, ILJune 11, 2015
Cons: Climate control!!! To hot in the building during the summer.
The hardest part of the job is the physical work. I am constantly putting freight away. The store is always HOT in the summer and FREEZING in the winter.

The best part of my job is I am able to work independently. There are only 1 or 2 people working at a time every day so I am able to manage myself. That being said...I am responsible for getting everything done that has to be done. There are not enough hours in the day!

CSR (Former Employee), Fairplay, COJune 11, 2015
my co-coworkers and managers where fun to be around. A typical at work was facing shelves and running the register. The hardest part of the job would have been the days when I would have to unload the truck on my own.
