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

Pros

One of the best parts of being there was the fact that my hours never dipped below 30.

Cons

The worst part was the managers. None of them got along or were on the same page.

    Pros

    Was Close to my home

    Cons

    HORRIBLE District Manager, Horrible Store Manager, Horrible hours, over worked sometimes doing opening to closing so the store manager could go out and get drunk. The pay was the worst!

    Pros

    Getting paid weekly. If you have a decent store manager, your experience may be survivable for a few months....maybe.

    Cons

    Very low pay, impossible demands, unnecessary workload, no benefits, inconsistent hours, 60+ hours for store managers while still making under 30k, no employee of the month, no bonuses, horrible upper management, I could go on for a while, if you want to know misery go ahead and work for them. I pity those who can't do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place enough people in the store to get what you want done, simply workload, update the POS system, get more involved, and offer better incentives.
