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.

    Pros

    Great work environment, good benefits, awesome people and a great culture!

    Cons

    Technology is a bit antiquated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider more aggressive approach to update technology systems to minimize bolting on other systems. Doesn't seem to be effective for anticipated growth.

    Pros

    DG has a culture of growing talent. If you set your sights on what you want to do in your future you can certainly do it at DG.

    Cons

    We are a low cost operator so we run very lean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on our main priorities and stay true to the customer.
