I have learned so much, I have exceeded expectations, but my stress level is through the roof

Store Manager (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

ProsRoom for advancement. Dollar General gave me opportunities when others would not. I will forever be grateful for the experience.

ConsThe expectations at store level are too high. I agree we need a model store with an excellent in stock position, however, by giving just a little more labor to these stores the level of stress and failure will reduce. I understand the cost of labor and the reasons for keeping a tight reign on it. But its just too much. I believe all members of management should be working 37-29 hours each, and not just on a register. We store managers want so much to be able to accomplish the tasks. Management, all levels, are always on register not completing the tasks given. Then they are stressed so much they quit. I have seen a lot of good and bad managers. I am one of the good ones. I believe in this company. But I think my days are numbered. I need a better work/life balance. I need to be able to go home and be mom and wife sometimes. My husband is sick of hearing about Dollar General.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement at store level needs more support from corporate management. We are the face of the company, give a little....get a lot!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
