Store Manager Dollar General... BRUTAL !!!!!!!!!!

Store Manager (Former Employee) Toledo, OH

ProsNone, Seriously apply someplace else.

ConsAverage Store Manager work schedule is 70 hours a week, Salary no overtime.
No labor hours to complete projects or process freight. Employees are hired at minimum wage and only given 24 hours a week max. Work load is ridiculous, Expectations of management are ridiculous. Constant threats and harassment about theft / shrink. Seriously I left the company three weeks ago and I don't miss it one day.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop beating your store managers to death !!!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
