I have been working at Dollar General part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Individual managers are usually great people who enjoy their jobs. Cashiers have the opportunity to work with customers all day long.

Cons

Stocking occurs during the regular work day, causing stress on employees trying to meet unrealistic productivity goals while also being expected to drop everything and assist customers.
Policies of identifying oneself at other stores because employees are dishonest.
The base pay is less than most individuals can afford to take for the amount of work done.

Advice to Management

Take care of your starting employees. For some, this isn't just a part time job that gives extra bucks. Some folks need this paycheck to pay the bills and support a family.

    Pros

    The insurance is not bad considering. It covers prescriptions very well. The paperwork can be easy to take care of if you are organized.

    Cons

    Store managers work 6 days a week per the company only leaving them one day off. They can take a half day, but if you go in it is hard to leave that early. The store manager has to do everything with little to no help. This doesn't allow the store manager to actually manager the business the way they should be able to. If Dollar General would realize this then their business would do better. There is no payroll and employees have to work by themselves in the store quite often. It is too stressful and does not pay well for as many hours that has to be put in and all the hard work that they do.
