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

Pros

Pay was good for being a sales associate.

Cons

Barely had any training, was supposed to be three days, it was 5 minutes the first day on the job. Expect a lot out of one cashier when only two people were present during the whole shift.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire at least one more person so job duties can get done more efficently. Don't hire people who don't have customer service personalities and hate working with the public

    I worked at Dollar General full-time

    Pros

    I liked it because it was right around the corner from my house. They also had good prices on a lot of their items.

    Cons

    Extremely heavy workload; Manager stated assistant manager was in charge but when doing something assistant manager told me to do manager came in and fussed because I was doing what the assistant manager told me to do.

    I worked at Dollar General

    Pros

    If you like seeing people and working with the customer directly.
    This is the job for you.
    Constant customer interaction and a very fast pace work environment.

    Cons

    A very fast paced work environment.
    It will either make your day extremely slow or extremely fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having more corporate visits at the regional level would help. As well as follow ups when a complaint happens.
    I was in Tennessee and our air conditioning broke the entire summer. Unhappy customers and bussiness lost happenRd on and daily basis.
    The temperature inside the store was close to the temperature outside. 100+ degrees outside.
    About 95 inside and 100% humidity
