The starting pay depends on the volume of your store and what experience you bring to the table. I know in my area the starting pay is 650 a week. That is working a min. of 52 hours a week. Each store gets a budget say 1800 and the store manager salary comes off the top of the payroll budget so the more you make the less you have to pay the staff. Slower stores have a store mgr and an assistant hence you will be working every saturday. if you are lucky and get a larger store you will have two assistants and can get off on the weekends if they are strong enough to carry the store. the bonus is 1% of net controllable profit, which is paid 30 days after a physical inventory. persoanally i don 't mind working but the beneftis are weak the 401k is weak and the medical coverage is expensive. one might consider walgreens or kroger before going to family dollar. with all that said if you are starting as a store manager and only plan to work there a year or so it looks good on a resume. "once you go salary they own you"
