Pros

Dollar General was a good company to work for when you have a set of upper management that actually care about you and your advancement within their company

Cons

it's a very intense job and store managers are required to pick up anything black that may come up in there store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

my advice to upper management at Dollar General would be listen to your store managers and understand where they come from.

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck, cool people i you life your neighborhood.

    Cons

    Training is nonexistent yet you will be held accountable. They try to work you to death I worked plenty 4am-10pm shifts with no breaks. Heavy turnover from sales associates to district managers. DM's think that shrink can only be associated with employees. DMs do not have your back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be consistent in plans, give proper feedback to new store managers

    Pros

    Dollar General promotes from within and offers extensive training for managers. There is always a ready supply of new employees.

    Cons

    Dollar General cares little for its store level employees. During my tenor as a store manager I received numerous death threats from customers. District Managers, Regional Managers both cover up all of these incidents. The stores are set up for easy theft. I would not recommend working at any level for Dollar General in any metropolis. The only way a Store Manager will ever get any kind of bonus to compensate the immense workload is if the Store Manager is lucky enough to manage a small town or county store. Dollar General only cares about getting as much money from the customer as possible, be it government food stamps or government assistant money. Dollar General puts its stores in the worst neighborhoods in the cities, and expect the employees to stop shoplifters and maintain a model store at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your time at Dollar General, use the training they provide to build for a better future job. Then as quickly as you can find another company, leave.
