Was a great first job, but wouldn't work there again unless they had reliable employees to work with

I worked at Dollar General full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good pay, Friendly environment, boss was very nice and willing to work with me on scheduling most of the time, customers were nice, really liked the people I got to work with.

Cons

The store I worked at didn't have a employee area to take breaks or eat lunch. I had to eat in the back or in my car...
Can be stressful if the store doesn't have enough employees to get truck done by Saturday night.
District manager wasn't very nice at all...
I wanted the job for part time but to them working up to 40 hours is part time while I was a full time college student....
They don't care if you have a life outside of Dollar General, if they want you to work they made it clear I had to be there....
Getting a solid schedule was a nightmare, it was always changing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the managers a chance to manage and give them better pay, benefits. My boss worked pretty much open to close the whole 9 months i worked there because corporate wouldn't send her any help...

    I worked at Dollar General full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There is upward mobility due to growth of stores.

    Cons

    The biggest complaint I heard was that the employees felt they worked harder for less money than at other retailers. Full-time is less than 40 hours so that you do not get overtime, unless an emergency arises.

    No opinion of CEO
