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

Pros

The company offers a good variety of products to consumers and has room for advancement for employees.

Cons

Heavy work load with insufficient time to complete tasks.
Wage compensation could be better.

Advice to Management

Reduce double work. (take one ad down to hang next ad that offers same price breaks) (moving seasonal/discontinued items several times to make room for new product when seasonal/discontinues items should have been reduced in price to move them out the door.)

Create policies that make it easier for management to hold employees accountable. A goal for productivity is not the same as a policy. A policy does not leave room for plausible excuses.

    I have been working at Dollar General full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good as far as vacation time given, abililty to further your education, 401K, etc.

    Cons

    Not all employees are treated equal between departments, or even within the same department. It depends on who your supervisor/manager is. Some are very strict regarding time off/flex time others are very lenient. This is not real good for employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know what the employees "down in the trenches" actually do and learn from that. Pay your people what they are worth. All employees and not just the higher ups. Consider giving lower level employees more of the raises and promotions instead of just those who are already manager and above.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited growth opportunities. Extensive training programs for all levels, including college credit/discounts. Leave time available to all employees from day one. 401k vested company match for ALL employees after 1 year. Really believes in its mission of "Serving Others."

    Cons

    Constantly changing. Not for someone looking to skate by and just get a paycheck. Hard work, but big pay-offs. Will always be behind if you work hard, but not smart.
