Former Employee - Assistant Manager

I worked at Dollar General full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I'd have to say the only benefit is the pay... which is a stretch.

Cons

DM and higher seems to be okay. However, Store Managers are all very cruel and demeaning. I worked for three different locations and every single one of them was hateful. Work/life balance is the... worst. Management shoves everything off onto AMs, Shifts, and cashiers. Open door policy is non-existent

Advice to Management

Don't work in retail management.

Current Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier

Pros

Cons
