Complaint / review text:
Today (1-17-12) i was fired from family dollar. Even though i was always on time and never called off i was fired because they said i didn't do enough for them. I was good on register and and accurate with the money counts. I treated the customers with respect. I was never properly trained in the duties i was suppose to perform. They have cameras in the store and watch you like a hawk and care more about what the employees are doing rather than worry about customers stealing. I have no income now and may lose my place because i no longer can pay my rent. This is a very heartless company. However when another employee was screwing around, talking to people on her cigarette breaks (their are no cigarette breaks at family dollar) they did nothing about it. The employee also was short with her register counts. Eventually she was a no call-no show but the employee never was terminated. All together the employee just stopped coming into work. The employee was given plenty of chances in keeping their while i was given not one chance to keep my job. I am appalled that they favor certain employees and bottom line if they don't like you-your is fired.
