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

    Small enough to run the whole store without it getting away from you, much easier to manage a staff of six or less.

    Cons

    They don't give you enough payroll budget to staff your store properly so you can achieve the many daily tasks they require of you. So the salaried managers are getting paid for 40 hours and are putting in closer to 60 weekly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us a little more budget to have more than one person at the store most of the day, help us curb the theft in the store by installing more working cameras in the stores. Thieves can see the dead spots in the store.
