Family Dollar Stores Inc Reviews

What is it like working at Family Dollar Stores Inc?

November 2018
Retail Store Assistant Manager:
I've been employed with Family Dollar for 4 yrs. Overall, I love the job and was promoted very quickly. I went from a Customer Service Representative to an Assistant Manager in 2 months. Then from an Assistant Manager to a Manager in Training in 2 yrs time. I'm now a Store Manager, this wasn't something just handed to me though I put A LOT into my work and busted my hump to get to where I am. My main complaint is that when Dollar Tree took over there was a shift in the culture. We went from a "family" to a machine. It's all about making money for DT now.. Which is fine, but there are things the company could invest in to make our jobs easier since they put so much pressure on us to 'Do Better, Sell More!' It's also difficult to manage a home-work life balance since somethings always changing (like truck delivery) at the last minute. And if someone calls out and you cant find a replacement you have to close the store on your own, even though it's 'technically' against company policy, BUT if you have the right staff in place this is no longer an issue. I do recommend the job, it could become a career with enough hard work and determination. Just be prepared for a lot of loong work days! Still worth it though :)
