    The "training" I received was just me sitting at a computer for 8 hours taking tests and listening to boring videos that had me almost falling asleep. Oh and let's not forget the fact that I wasn't paid for that, and when I asked my future manager if I was to be paid for it or not I was ignored. Legally you're supposed to be paid for training it's considered working but with the shadyness of dollar general both as a store and as a job don't be surprised if you're not paid for your training either and they try to get free work out of you.

    Job training is mediocre and needs improving. Supervisors need to play a bigger role in the managers role

    I like the fact that you are trained as you go. It's helpful to learn new things from co-works.

    I can't speak for everyone, but my first day on the job I was thrown to the wolves. I had virtually no experience with operating a cash register, and the manager on duty, who was supposed to train me, did nothing and kept getting irritated with me when I called her up to help me.

    my training was very easy, there was nothing hard about the job, didnt have to learn too much in 1 day, and it went by very quickly

    There are online training courses that are good to know but management does not go over it and expect you to know what to do.
