Good people but...

Overall the people I worked with are ok but everything started to fall on my shoulders. I left the company after my wife got sick and I had to come in a little late. Instead of simply understanding this emergency was written up. That was just it for me.

poor

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.

Cons

health insurance

Managers are overworked

managers are overworked, associates are under paid. hours are long, rewards are non-existent. not a very good environment, and growth is hard. you are expected to put the company before your family

Pros

none

Cons

managers work +60 hours a week, no overtime

Good work experince

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
