Family Dollar President & COO To Appear On CBS’s “Undercover Boss” November 8

Family Dollar President and COO, Mike Bloom, will be featured on the CBS award-winning reality series, “Undercover Boss” this Friday, November 8 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). For the episode, Bloom went undercover in several Family Dollar stores and at one of the company’s distribution centers, where he worked a variety of jobs alongside company team members.

Having joined Family Dollar, one of the fastest-growing, discount retail chains in the country, in September of 2011, Bloom decided to take part in the show to get a first-hand look at what team members go through every day and to find ways to make their jobs easier.

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for “Undercover Boss”, but I am so glad I decided to participate,” said Bloom. “This was an experience that I will never forget and one that I know will forever shape the way I do my job. This experience offered more insight into what our Team Members experience every day, and also confirmed to me that we have some incredible people working on the front lines in our stores and distribution centers.”

During the show, Bloom had the opportunity to change the lives of several team members for the better. (Tune in to see who and how). “This show became more to me than just the chance to get an inside look at what goes on inside our more than 8,000 stores and 11 distribution centers,” said Bloom. “This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to get to know some of our Team Members on a very personal level. I am so proud of the Team Members we have working for us, and I know the changes we make, both for those featured and for those behind the scenes, will make a tremendous impact on their working lives.”
