    Pros

    Dollar General pays Managers well. And in this economy, people with jobs should be thankful to have a job. There are many stores, so there is room for growth and promotion if you are willing to work hard and have good work ethic.

    Cons

    No job is perfect. It is what you make of it. Retail is hard work. If you are lazy, and ungrateful to have a job, then you will not be happy anywhere!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean up your stores! Some of them are extremely dirty! If the manager of that store can't turn it around, get rid of them and put someone there that will.

    Pros

    There's no pros for this company anymore. at one point "who you know" was beneficial. now neither who not what you know is.

    Cons

    work their managers to near insanity. compared to the hours they work and their salary, a lot make less than minimum wage. other key holders don't get the pay they deserve for the job they do. there are no hours to give people so a lot of times there's one employee at the store for hours, alone. NOT SAFE but they meet their budget and report better numbers to Wall Street that way and it is apparent (at store level) that this is what really matters to this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    worry about employee satisfaction as much as customer satisfaction! a satisfied employee can deliver better customer service. give some hours to the stores so that they can stock, merchandise, and clean as you expect them to while being able to have a person run a register...FOR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. stop creating temporary positions for internals if you can't adequately fill their temporarily vacant former position!
