Pros

You get experience in budgeting, merchandising, hr, loss prevention. As a store manager you get to be involved in every part of the store. Also since such a small company you get closer with your customer base.

Cons

Due to being such a small company as a store manager if someone calls in then you have to work. Spend more time doing regular work and less managing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to be a store manager that does more managing than actual work then Dollar General is not the company for you. If you like having small employee base and customer base then this is the company for you.

    Pros

    constantly changing workforce makes it easy to promote because people quit or get fired every week due to stress

    Cons

    each store has their own agenda..Different ways each manager wants stuff done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more labor hire office personell and if you want stores to be recovered real good maybe more than 2 people should close daily

    Pros

    They have a great plan for business, and if you follow it you can have a sucessful store

    Cons

    They do not give the proper hours to keep the amount of help in a store needed to get the results to provide a wonderful customer experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your store managers when they give you insight fron the front lines. If the managers had sufficient hours, training, and training hours they may have teams that would provide less shrink, and more work. Most employees don't understnad what the goal is so they just don't care. Internal theft, and waste comes from untrained employees.
