I worked at Dollar General full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

None, Seriously apply someplace else.

Cons

Average Store Manager work schedule is 70 hours a week, Salary no overtime.
No labor hours to complete projects or process freight. Employees are hired at minimum wage and only given 24 hours a week max. Work load is ridiculous, Expectations of management are ridiculous. Constant threats and harassment about theft / shrink. Seriously I left the company three weeks ago and I don't miss it one day.

Advice to Management

Stop beating your store managers to death !!!!!!

    I worked at Dollar General full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck never bounced, Company car and a gas card...That's it!

    Cons

    Long hours, unrealsitic demands placed on DM's to enforce upon store staff's. Company culture is that of ALL the employee's are stealing, lying and abusing the system. There is no work/life balance- They suck the life right out of you! You DO NOT need a job this badly.

    Advice to Management

    Dreiling and his crew have dug this company into a pit that it will never recover from. Lose your company jets, race car drivers and HUGE bonuses and pay your store teams a livable salary.
