    Pros

    There are no pros to working for Dollar General.

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough help, worked all areas-cashier, stocker, cleaner, receiving, maintenance, scheduler. I was allowed to interview people, but the hiring decision came from several states away. With the hours I worked, and the pay I received, I made less than minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, get more help in stores so management can do the management duties.

    I have been working at Dollar General full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really haven't found any pros for this company except that it is a job

    Cons

    you are constantly fighting for hours constantly being told to work off the clock I have worked through my lunch is for probably almost a year now. They have an extremely poor pay scale. They only offer you one break for every six hours you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend the upper management keep an extremely close eye on their district managers and be low and I would also raise your pay scale to be a little more competitive with other companies instead of being the lowest paid and the cheapest store
