Pros

The customers, always busy, and I was fortunate enough to have some good co-workers. And I liked how the store was set up. With a small team taking care of the store, it kept a neighborly feel.

Cons

Low pay, long hours, inconsistent breaks, limited opportunities for advancement, and a high distrust of employees when it comes to theft. Here are a few comments I received from other co-workers: "Why would you work long-term for DG?," "They are more worried about us stealing than the vendors and customers," and "I only make fifty cents above minimum wage to be a lead." To sum it up: Dollar General does not show appreciation for its store employees. I just don't understand it. The store should come first because it is the main source of revenue.

Advice to Management

Become more competitive and invest more in the people who care for your stores. After all, the stores are your "money-makers." Taking care of a store requires more than half-time effort; therefore, if you want good workers, pay for full-time effort. If you want someone to invest in your company, you must be willing to invest in them. It would save you money in the long-term because you'd cut the costs of hiring and retraining people. You'd save money and improve sales by attracting people who would come to really care for the stores.
