I have been working at Dollar General full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You get experience in budgeting, merchandising, hr, loss prevention. As a store manager you get to be involved in every part of the store. Also since such a small company you get closer with your customer base.

Cons

Due to being such a small company as a store manager if someone calls in then you have to work. Spend more time doing regular work and less managing.

Advice to Management

If you want to be a store manager that does more managing than actual work then Dollar General is not the company for you. If you like having small employee base and customer base then this is the company for you.

    each store has their own agenda..Different ways each manager wants stuff done

    Advice to Management

    Add more labor hire office personell and if you want stores to be recovered real good maybe more than 2 people should close daily
