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

Pros

Room for advancement. Dollar General gave me opportunities when others would not. I will forever be grateful for the experience.

Cons

The expectations at store level are too high. I agree we need a model store with an excellent in stock position, however, by giving just a little more labor to these stores the level of stress and failure will reduce. I understand the cost of labor and the reasons for keeping a tight reign on it. But its just too much. I believe all members of management should be working 37-29 hours each, and not just on a register. We store managers want so much to be able to accomplish the tasks. Management, all levels, are always on register not completing the tasks given. Then they are stressed so much they quit. I have seen a lot of good and bad managers. I am one of the good ones. I believe in this company. But I think my days are numbered. I need a better work/life balance. I need to be able to go home and be mom and wife sometimes. My husband is sick of hearing about Dollar General.

Advice to Management

Management at store level needs more support from corporate management. We are the face of the company, give a little....get a lot!

    Pros

    None that I can think of! This place is horrible and has absolutely no pro's to it! Not worth the time to work here!

    Cons

    Ghetto customers that are nothing but rude..
    EBT customers slowing down the line with their huge orders
    Too many task in a little amount of time
    No discount
    Everyone is a thief according to this shady company ...This company breaks laws every day but they're more worried about the employees stealing LOL
    Customers that pay in 100's for something that is literally $10 bucks...wth??
