I have been working at Dollar General full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Loved the people who worked for me. Pay good, bonuses were good, yearly raises,

    Cons

    No flexability, DMs change too much, low hours available for scheduling

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should pay attenion to DM activity. If a large number of managers leave when a new DM enters the region maybe there is a problem.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good experience, good workout some days.

    More and more stressful every year with little compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers by how much they can produce. Could help keep morale and work ethic high.
