    I worked at Dollar General part-time

    Pros

    It is an easy job to work at if there is nothing else. You usually do not have to be there super early or super late.

    Cons

    You do not make very much money. Health insurance is a joke and people tend not to respect retail workers as much.

    Advice to Management

    I do not really have any advice for management at this time as I have never run a business before.
