I have been working at Dollar General full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay is good as long as you get it up front. Schedule is Flexible, small store size, Great opportunity for advancement as long as you are willing to work for it.

Cons

Can be very stressful at times. Company tries to get too much done too quick. No budget for hiring new employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide sufficent payroll to complete projects. Dont rush to get all things done in a week. Some districts could be smaller to allow DM more time within their stores.

    I worked at Dollar General part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff (at least where I was) was always helpful and worked together as a team. Benefits are great for people to decide to make a career in it. The company made its 10,000th store last year. This company is not going down anytime soon and a career in it would not be a waste of time if that is what you want.

    Cons

    I was not working long enough to be able to lists cons.

    Pros

    I really liked the people I work with, and the customers always made me smile.

    Cons

    The pay is very poor, little to no training, the workload is not achievable...ever!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that even the management level could use some training, it is the worst company I have ever worked for, Train your people not show them a video, answer questions, stop blaming someone else, know whats going on in your store, care and get it together!
