You know how you define "SLAVE", you're that person. Everything they put them on your shoulder. They'll take the life out of you. NO MERCY...Take a moment before making your moves.
Pros
Not enough hours in your payroll that a manager has to work extra.

health insurance

The hardest part of the job would be maintaining the store. There was a lot of foot traffic and inventory that didn’t allow for every part of the store to always be maintained.

A work day for Family Dollar is a experince that I could carrie to any other job.
I have learned to deal with different type of customers from mean to the most nices people.

I am a new store manager as before I was a Asst Manager. The experince as a store manager is much more than I thought. Learn something new everyday.

The coworkers that I have are very hard workers.

The hardest part of my job is the work load is very stressful.
Pros
The pay and DM help
Cons
The long hours on my feet
