I worked at Dollar General part-time (less than an year)

Pros

More hours than other retail(part time) jobs and I loved the ability to work at multiple locations. The job itself was not hard and adequate training was provided.

Cons

While working I was expected to work for 8 hours without a 10 minutes break or a lunch but was not paid for lunch(even though I worked through it). Management was horrible to customers making my job difficult. Lack of employees made the job difficult as well

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The customers are a vital part of a companies long term survival

    Pros

    Payment, benefits after certain number of months

    Cons

    management issues, environment, plenty of stress

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When it comes to the summer months and the stress of the upcoming holidays, think of your employees. Working at 100% in a stressful or incredibly heated environment is not likely to happen. If anything you're going to lose more employees than keep the ones that can do the job well. Also, equalize what is in the mod. You equalize the volume fine, but the surge of products isn't going to help us do the job faster. If anything, it will slow us down a bit and just add more to the stress and will further push us away from making rate
