Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Black Creek, NC – August 17, 2018
Part time associates are worked 9 or 10 hour shifts while salaried management works 7-8 hour shifts. This saves money on labor for the company. Associates work non-stop in store juggling customers and stock. Bonuses are promised for monthly "push inventory" but although the associates actually do the selling, only management receives the bonuses. But they don't tell anyone. Long hard hours for very little money and termination for not pushing items.
No employee discount, no breaks, bathrooms are locked and have to be opened by the manager every time you want to use one.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – New Mexico – August 17, 2018
No hours. Store manager uses hours from the store for themselves. No communication. Schedule switches and informs no one then writes you up for not showing up for your shift. Theft constantly. I am an Assistant Manager and get 20 hours a week if I'm lucky. Barely making past minimum wage.
Level 1 Store Support Representative (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – August 17, 2018
Family Dollar is good for a career change but compensation is not sufficient for Cost of Living. Not to mention it is not competitive and it is likely the reason we are constantly short staffed and doing IT, HR, and a little Payroll all in one position.
Great Management, Great Co Workers.
Compensation, Way to focused on Cutting cost versus actual needs for the business.
The Family Dollar in Johnson Square, Hollywood is often very busy. Mindfulness and time management are some of the important working etiquettes one should have in working in this workplace. The management is good, co-workers make even the hardest job bearable.
Manager Assistant (Current Employee) – Belleville, IL – August 16, 2018
overall company is a growing experience. treat management unfairly on daily basis. expect to work 6 days a week at a minimum of 50 hours a week. if employees don't show up district manager does not offer any help for them to solve issues. becomes the sole responsibility of the store manager to cover. so store managers are working 80 plus hours a week. they will promote whomever they can just for coverage, which is not a good business move for the stores or the company. when expectations of an assistant manager are higher than the district manager there is a problem. Always made excuses for everyone but never wanted any excuses. showed favoritism on promotions.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 16, 2018
A typical day at family dollar. its definitely has no order at all. You deal with people stealing throwing bikes threw the window , pushing you threw doors getting threated everyday . being disrespected being cursed out because of my skin color. as a assistant manager I closed sometimes with females and we had no security. The management there could be way better . they communication sucks and they don't really listen to the store workers on how much we complain about problems they never got back to us about it. work place culture is different people. the hardest part about that job is they think we are super heroes and they want u to break our back and they don't even care about us . the most enjoyable thing about the job at family dollar is making the customers happy

Stocker/Unloader and cashier (Former Employee) – Landover, MD – August 16, 2018
A typical day at family was at noontime it gets rough and the crazy people come in with alot of drama. Also, by working there i pick up some good habits like for example, holding my coworkers accountable for what they was or wasn't doing at that time.
