Not a bad place to work

Cashier (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dollar General

ProsCan be a fun place to work
Managers generally seem to care about employees
If you are a good employee it is easy to get promotions

ConsCashier has way too much responsibilities. I had to work the cash register by myself, stock, clean, deal with customers, and anything else the manager wanted me to do and they always had something to add to my list.
Senior managers make some stupid decisions sometimes.
Pay is not great but I guess not horrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvery senior manager should work in a store for at least a week and do every job there is so they will know what is really going on in their stores so they can make better decisions on how to run the stores. For instance, it makes most customers mad when they are offered things to buy at the cash register, like candy bars and it also makes them mad when they are asked to donate money at the cash register and the poor cashier is the one who gets yelled at for asking, it is not fair to the cashier.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
