I have been working at Dollar General full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Constant turnover means we are always hiring. So if you need a job come to Dollar General. You may hate it there but there is always a job.

Cons

Poor wages, poor benefits. Long, non stop mandatory overtime. Unsafe facilities. Higher than standard accident rates. Poorly trained management. Unresponsive corporate upper management.

Advice to Management

The board of directors should fire Rick Dreiling. That's just for starters. Remodel your dirty stores. Remodel your distribution centers and make the facilities safer. MUCH safer. Hire people into positions they can handle, not hiring 60 year old women into 10 plus hour shifts lifting heavy boxes in fluctuating temperatures.

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

    Pros

    I learned that I never want to work at Dollar General again. I realized that just because a company has over 10,000 stores, does not mean it is successful.

    Cons

    Worst job I have ever had!| Worst job ever!! Horrible salary with expectation to work 70-80 hours a week. Never again will Istep foor in a Dollar General.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that actually graduated from high school.
