dont work for them

the amount of disrespect this company has for its staff is by far the worse. They treat employees like trash and they don't care if you get killed while at work either. Their way of thinking is we got insurance you get trained one way only to find out it was wrong they pick and choose who can go on pto and who cant and push full time people to work less then part time i was warned about them and didnt listen

Close knit

The workers are very close, we treat each other like family. We all get together outside of work and have fun. We hang out almost all the time. Like you’re not even at work.

Not enough help

Working at Family Dollar you never have enough workers working a shift. Your expected to do everything like stocking and cleaning while running the register. You also don’t get your breaks like you should because of not enough help on a shift


Flexible work schedule


Bad management and not enough help

Great first job

The people are wonderful . They make the day go by easier. It’s a store job that can get boring at times. But the management makes you feel like family.

Needs help in everything,not organized,an management is not good. Daily pay not good.

* Go to work ask what I need to do, start cleaning and straightening up stuff,finish putting up stuff that people don't finish help with customers and work the registers,assist cashier and go back to the floor and work.*Communication and being a leader.*They suck.*Everyone is pretty much good to work around.*Not getting mad at everything.*Is when I get off work and go home.


The job is awful


It could be better if they allowed it to be.

Juggling the cash register, stocking, and tidying is the norm.

Stock shelves, facing product, putting up price changes, rearranging product, cleaning the store, checking customers out at the register, and checking ID for cigarette purchases, are all daily duties.You'll only have a couple coworkers on any given shift, unless you're working in a bigger city.Some of the product you stock can be pretty heavy, like cat litter, but nothing outlandish.


employee discount, sometimes quiet, busy but laid-back.


Poor selection of decent food for eating on shift, no one is gonna lift that heavy thing for you.

It’s Ok

Honestly it’s ok not terrible just one of those jobs that make some quick money. But watch out for the shifty and childish adults these people live off drama. But it’s not terrible just not a forever career.

Another of work little pay

The only thing that was great about this job was the great customers I meet. I never got any training on paperwork or computer work. I was thrown in as manager. I was told I was having someone come in and train me and they never showed.i was on salary and found out that the asm was making more money then me.they are only there for the money not there employees.


No pro


No breaks no training and barely any days off

Well one employee complained about me having a nose stud in and when I was hired nothing was ever said that I could not have it and now being told that it's policy and its not the case ita mangers choices and I feel that is wrong. You have have freedom of choices and expression and you don't like that type of piercing you are going to keep others from having it not right. And if we have to be in dress code and in policy isn't hygen of of them to shouldn't come to work smelling.

The management at this location was horrible. She was seriously unqualified for the role. She took her workers for granted and did not put in as much effort as they did. She didn’t respect the idea of family to accommodate the schedule to work for her employees. The pay was good, but management could use some work.
