CHARLOTTE, N.C.-Mike Bloom, president and chief operating officer of Family Dollar, will be featured on the CBS series “Undercover Boss” this Friday, Nov. 8.

For the episode, Bloom went undercover in several Family Dollar stores and at one of its distribution centers, where he worked in a variety of jobs. A company statement said Bloom, who joined Family Dollar in 2011, decided to take part in the show to get a first-hand look at what company employees go through every day and to find ways to make their jobs easier.

Bloom said, “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. 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.”

The episode will air from 8-9 p.m. EST.
