    I have been working at Dollar General full-time

    Pros

    There's no pros for this company anymore. at one point "who you know" was beneficial. now neither who not what you know is.

    Cons

    work their managers to near insanity. compared to the hours they work and their salary, a lot make less than minimum wage. other key holders don't get the pay they deserve for the job they do. there are no hours to give people so a lot of times there's one employee at the store for hours, alone. NOT SAFE but they meet their budget and report better numbers to Wall Street that way and it is apparent (at store level) that this is what really matters to this company.

    Advice to Management

    worry about employee satisfaction as much as customer satisfaction! a satisfied employee can deliver better customer service. give some hours to the stores so that they can stock, merchandise, and clean as you expect them to while being able to have a person run a register...FOR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. stop creating temporary positions for internals if you can't adequately fill their temporarily vacant former position!

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

    Pros

    paid weekly but not very good pay

    Cons

    slave drivers, one of the worst companies to work for.. they don't pay for training or travel time. die from the heat in the summer months and freeze in the winter. Wrongly accuse workers of stealing, then tell them what to write and where to initial when they fire them....BULLIES
