I have been working at Dollar General full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Bonus potential is there. I had one good Dm that was very helpful. Customers were friendly and being at there service is good but because I value customers and not having them wait it would take away from other job duties that were due.

Cons

No payroll to run stores, schedule for managers is one day off a week. Had 4 Dm's in two years

Advice to Management

Best job for single individual who can spend many hours in your store maintaining it.

    Re-evaluate how you treat your employees, from part timers to management. Give realistic objectives and expectations.
