    I applied to Family Dollar through their website. A couple of weeks later, I received a call asking me to go the store for an interview. It wasn't much of an interview, but instead I was told what the company was about, and how difficult the job was going to be. Also, most of the time was spent on discussing the drug screen.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Well the hiring process was fairly quickly, I applied online two weeks before I got an email inviting me to go to an interview. I showed up to my interview 15 mins early along with 3 other people, the performance manager went ahead and held our interview early that was 5 mins. Basically just saying to go take a drug test and that they would be in contact with us to help set up the store because this was a new location. Then I recently just got an email to sign the onboard training. Yay!!!
