Hopefully my former store has improved

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Campobello, SC

I worked at Dollar General part-time for less than a year

ProsThey pay by either direct deposit or a money card (debit card) and encourage you to check after them if hours and pay aren't adding up. You definitely get a handle on mutli-tasking and the most efficient ways to stock shelves & clean the store. Training videos teach you how to do just about everything in their preferred way. There is rarely a dull moment.

ConsThere is a high turnover rate. I was just a summer employee before I went off to college, but by the time I got back for Christmas break, only one of my former co-workers was still employed in the store. Often I didn't know my schedule for the next week until the night before. It seemed that we ran on a skeleton crew and I was always needed in two or places at once. I hope it has gotten better!

Advice to Senior ManagementTake great care in hiring managers who are tactful with customers and employees, can make wise decisions about hiring employees to avoid having to fire or force resignation, and who are timely in posting the work schedule.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
