I guess my Family Dollar store is better than most. I get and give breaks constantly throughout the day
Lunches are given very strictly. I will say however as an Asm I have been working upper management hours of 52-55 hrs a week, while the other managers get 40. My pay still is not the greatest, I have to cover everyone's butt when they dont work the freight boats. Family dollar does not know how to treat great work ethic and initiative workers. Going above and beyond should be considered when someone wants to advance in the work place.

It is Up to Managment to work the schedule, However I think managers differ. As Manager I try to work with the employees to the best of my ability

Allow more payroll hours so the store manager can schedule 2 people to open and 2 people to close. Update or add new software that can better track inventory and give store managers more control on what is order for the store to help with less overstock sitting in the back room. Also would start a new program inside each district were each store would give an employee to join a special team that travel through out the district doing inventory, reset, remodel and many other project instead of hiring a 3rd party team to do it. This would give employees that want to show their worth more of an opportunity to do so and help the financial stability of Family Dollar employees as well.

Bi-weekly on Friday, with pay periods starting on Sunday and ending on Saturday. Although most wages are based on experience and knowledge it is still up to the DM’s discretion on the actual amount. Only store managers are paid salary, all other employees are paid hourly.
