Very easy going yet challenging work environment.

Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I worked at Family Dollar Stores full-time for more than a year

ProsThe hours are very flexible and accomadating. It is a challenging work environment dependent on the area the store is loacted, but overall a place that you wil enjoy going to daily. No place of business is perfect and it is what you make it.

ConsIn management you have to take so many test to remain in good standing with corporate. The in-store internet service is super ancient which makes it very difficult to get in-house paperwork done. Further, in areas that arrant more security or more employees, there needs to be an assessment of the budget to do so. Being a woman and alone int he store at times, it can be dangerous dependent on the area.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo work on better structured lunch hours and the overal operation of the store in terms of cleanliness and delegated duties.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
