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

Pros

Good pay, Friendly environment, boss was very nice and willing to work with me on scheduling most of the time, customers were nice, really liked the people I got to work with.

Cons

The store I worked at didn't have a employee area to take breaks or eat lunch. I had to eat in the back or in my car...
Can be stressful if the store doesn't have enough employees to get truck done by Saturday night.
District manager wasn't very nice at all...
I wanted the job for part time but to them working up to 40 hours is part time while I was a full time college student....
They don't care if you have a life outside of Dollar General, if they want you to work they made it clear I had to be there....
Getting a solid schedule was a nightmare, it was always changing.

Advice to Management

Give the managers a chance to manage and give them better pay, benefits. My boss worked pretty much open to close the whole 9 months i worked there because corporate wouldn't send her any help...

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

    Pros

    I've worked in Corporate Retail 36 years and there is definitely something very different and palpable about the culture at DG. My department management insists on work/life balance even in the toughest times. Its extremely refreshing. We have great leadership and the stress is manageable.

    Cons

    Technology. Fortunately, we have a talented team that can build or obtain what is needed so we rarely have to rely on IT support.
