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

Pros

This company really honors their mission of serving others. Not only serving the communities they are in, but their employees, the military (active and reserves) and national-guard. Dollar General affords anyone with the desire to work hard and grow with many opportunities for advancement, both in traditional and non-traditional ways. People who come to work for Dollar General have the ability to make this their lifelong career. It would surprise many how many “corporate” people started out as employees in the stores. Dedication, hard work and determination payoff!!

Cons

There really isn’t much negative about the company, even though they are growing at an amazing pace in these tough economic times, they still have the ability to stay connected to their store employees and take critical feedback.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!! You continue to make the right changes to continue supporting our small towns and communities as an EDLP leader and role model for other organizations with the DG Literacy Foundation and Employee Assistance Program.

    I have been working at Dollar General full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefit package, compensation, wonderful Team environment, and opportunites for advancement are available if you desire to move up.

    Cons

    Some days are very stressful, but you will most likely encounter that in any job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to continue to consider the people and not just numbers. Happy employees produce more, miss less work, and tell others about their positive experience. This results in retention.

    I have been working at Dollar General part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great for college or if you have another job. I personally would not recommend this job for anyone outside of school

    Cons

    not enough pay.
    lateral growth is limited.
    Management does the exact same things that lower level people do and the rules and procedures assume you are not too intelligent

    Doesn't Recommend
