    I have been working at Dollar General part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    From day one I started working really hard so I got more hours than the other sales associates. Also, my managers are awesome and great to work with.

    Cons

    They expect the sales associates to do so many things at once, it's kind of hard to do everything expected of you: man the cash register while also watching for carts in the parking lot, doing totes, and recovering the store. And it's really hard to recover and watch the register sometimes, plus some customers are really impatient and rude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's really hard when there are only two of us working; it would be nice to have at least three: one on the register/watching carts, the manager recovering the area and stuff, and one other sales associate to do totes and recovery.

    I worked at Dollar General full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy to move up if able to travel.

    Cons

    You are overworked on a daily basis. In 8 Hours you're expected to do the work of 12 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic about general work and sales goals.
