Pros

The basic benefits were good, but the fringe benefits were better. During my tenure, I received stock options and a team share bonus in addition to my salary every year. The bonus were based on a percentage of your salary.

Cons

The distribution center I worked at engaged in a lot of clique activity. This was my greatest obstacle. However, it is my understanding that much of this activity has been dismantled by corporate office.

Advice to Management

All DC's in the network should operate in the same manner regardless of who the building director is. Corporate should come down sometimes to conduct employee satisfaction surveys. These surveys should also include the feedback from the first level management personnel. Secondly, please investigate any activities that seem legally questionable immediatedly. This will help retentions efforts immensely.

    Pros

    Good benefits, insurance + 401k. Given the proper drive and ability to follow DG guidelines and apply yourself to them, promotions/raises can be acheived fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there's lots of stress imposed on all employees. Lack of communication between senior management members and lower management/sales associates is also a serious issue, and many managers seem to not want to stick to DG guidelines and the SOP.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate!!! Don't be afraid to lean on the rest of your management team when you need it.
