    I worked at Dollar General part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall a decent place to work so long as you have a good boss. Most co-workers are easy to get along with just stay out of the rumor mill.

    Cons

    Higherups will always be a pain with random inceptions but it's not hard to do your job well. Registers crash all the time and are buggy on the best of days.

    Advice to Management

    Update your dang equipment. The registers crash all the time and over 10 years out of date.
