    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!!!

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The first interview was extremely long due to the fact her employee was late. A lot of questions. She was nice though and could not tell me what my base pay was. About 2 days later I interviewed with a dm and got sent to do a drug test. Called a few days later with no definite answer to if I was hired. I then got a call from a different store to come for a interview. She hired me.

    Experience plays a role in your pay. If you are currently employed just a FYI tell them you make a little more than what you actually make. Don't get extreme with your pay. But they will offer you more if you will be leaving another job to join their team.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview Details

    They were having in-store interviews and I met with the manger and the training manger. They were both very friendly and made the interview a comfortable experience. I was contacted the next day and set up another interview with the DM a week later. She asked more in-depth, career oriented questions. Again a positive experience.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was called by the district manager two days later to schedule an interview for the next day. The interview was very thorough as far as the job description. The questions were not tricky, they were expected. Interview went well and lasted about 45 minutes. I was then contacted by the human resources manager for a phone interview which lasted about 25 minutes. She again went over the job description very thoroughly, her questions were also not tricky. I was again contacted by the district manager and he again went over the details of the job and what is expected and entailed, he then offered me what I felt was a fair salary for a 52-hour work week.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. I have been in retail for a long time and I did not get any questions that I felt were unreasonable or tricky.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Family Dollar Stores in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Waste of time. I applied for the job because the description just stated customer service experience, which I have over 10 years of. I got called in for an interview a few days later and was told that she couldn't continue the process because I didn't have management experience. Can you please tell me why you called me then?

She told me she would try to get a hold of the original people that where supposed to interview me and get back to me. I never heard anything from anyone of them again.

    Interview Details

    Very Complicated needed to finish online first, which never seemed to work properly. Anywhere from error messages to kept getting disconnected from server no matter what system I used. Their in store systems to hire staff are so out date and slow (seemed slower than dial up) that it makes almost impossible for anyone to finish the application process.

    • The interview process seemed very unprofessional and lacking substance.   Answer Question

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Family Dollar Stores.

    Interview Details

    Was very easy and laid back, asked basic questions about shrink and managing others. Nothing someone with a little experience couldn't handle. Be sure when answering questions about shrink, to stand firm on giving no one a break. To them there is never an acceptable reason to steal.
