CUSTOER IN STORE IN WACO TEXAS HAD TO CARRY HIS ITEMS IN HAND TO HIS CAR, NO BAGS. I BELIEVE THE HR AND UPPER MGT PERSONNEL NEED TO STEP UP AND HELP ALL THE STORE MANAGERS WHO ARE AT THEIR END, AND THAT WAY THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEIR LOYAL CUSTOMERS. Managers are forced to work long hours, at least 52, per week and if anyone calls out they must cover for them at no additional pay. A manager cannot leave store unless an assistant manager is present.
AND ALL THE DISTRICT MANAGER SAYS IS,”JUST KEEP TURNING THE COMPUTERS ON AND OFF”, AND HOPE THEY WORK. There are two assistants(ASM) and one walked off the job forcing manager to cover that ASM’s hours.
The company expanded rapidly in the 60’s and had over 50 stores by 1969.
Absolutely zero additional compensation and store hours were increased to open and close an hour earlier and later requiring additional time from manager. When this person is vetted and drug tested there is a several week training to boot. Why doesn’t website tell where positions are open without having to fill out personal information including birth date?
Employees just don’t show up and manager can not discipline for fear that they will not come back and manager will have to do more work. People have complained that it took so long that they gave up. It has been one month and still has not heard back or been vetted in any way. Perspective hire wants to also give 2 week notice at current job. Why can’t an application(paper) be filled out in store and manager able to move along hiring process? Manager is reliable, excellent at job and full of integrity.
WHEN THERE IS NO STAFF YOU CANNOT TAKE OFF so needless to say that was not approved and lost. This place is a real sweatshop that would benefit greatly from a UNION.
Reply I was happy when Bellevue, Idaho got a family dollar store.
Family Dollar was founded in 1959 by Leon Levine, their first location was in Charlotte, NC.
