Lone worker
Retail General Manager (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSDecember 9, 2018
As a GM for this company you are to run your store by yourself for half the day. Labor is run so tight, that you cannot afford to bring in any employee help until late in the day. You are required to run a register, stock your shelves, unload your trucks, set up your displays, check in your vendors, do your paperwork, clean your store and be on conference calls. You work 60-80 hours a week, all while being continuously told that it wasn't good enough. The pay is equivalent to minimum wage when all the hours are taken into consideration.
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) –  Ashland, KYDecember 8, 2018
It was fast paced but an amazing place to work!!! I loved the customers and the staff was always like family. The hardest part of the job was juggling customers coming into the store and handling the register at the same time.

Started off as a Assistant Manger. Learned and gained a lot of management skills. It's easy to grow with the company. Schedule was pretty good. Work wasnot hard at all as long as you have a good team

Not bad for a small gig
CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) –  Lehigh Acres, FLDecember 8, 2018
If you're looking for a small part time job, this place is just right for it.
I wouldn't suggest making a career out of it because ASM makes 10$ hrly set pay. Cashiers make 8-9$ Set pay.

Faced paced & a job is a job. You have days that’s stressful but other than those minor things it’s ok for the most part. It just the security is what’s bad.

Churn and burn
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Socorro, NMDecember 6, 2018
Family dollar is a good company if you enjoy working retail. There is opportunity for advancement, primarily due to the high turnover of the job creating openings. As with most corporate companies, the bottom line is all that matters with little room for error. This focus on the money and not the employees leads to the manager being abused due to the salaried position. If you need a job and are willing to play the game to advance, or if you just need a job Family Dollar will provide that position.

Warehouse job with low pay for hard work
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Saint George, UTDecember 6, 2018
I dont have much to say.It was a job that i took because i had to. The pay is not worth the amount of work they give you. On the other hand, you do have opportunities for advancement and incentive pay.
