SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Lewiston, NY – June 26, 2017
This was my very first job, straight out of high school. I was hired as a cashier but was promoted to supervisor about a month after my employment started. Being the youngest employee and being a supervisor was quite stressful but it was a lot of fun.

Dollar General isn't a good company towards it's employees. The thing that makes this job decent is your coworkers. I have stayed with the company because I was attending school. They're very flexible with your schedule and days off. However this all really depends on the manager you get! There is opportunity for advancement in this company which is nice. You can become a LSA fairly quickly, then ASM somewhat fast, like first year or year and a half. Becoming a store manager may happen within two to three years, and they earn an fair amount salary wise.
It's a pretty basic job even for management. Lot's of organizing and lots of inventory shipments that are deadline. Every holiday you have to redo the stores marketing to fit the holiday. It is a team job and if one person slacks then you do fall behind due to the amount of shipment that comes in and the deadlines that are placed.
Great job for someone with little to no experience
inventory, constant bulk shipment every week, work life balance
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Fairmount, GA – June 26, 2017
You start off minimum wage, have to run the cash register and try to stock shelves at the same time. You don't get any benefits. You do get off at the time your scheduled to get off and the manager does work with you on your schedule. You don't get any discounts
Good schedules, friendly management
Poor pay for the work you do, not alot of hours, no benefits
Overall, I have had a very positive experience working at Dollar General. Compensation and bonus are below average. Management is pretty good about personal time. The office has some very nice amenities. The work is fast paced and rewarding.
Some coworkers were fu to work with. Rumors start too easy when they see what you purchase there as a customer.
CASHIER (Former Employee) – Clearwater, KS – June 26, 2017
Lousy pay, no real hours, and no benefits. It was a decent place to work, but you should not be a local to work there. Coworkers willing to give you some of their hours, but not willing to take yours if you need help.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Arkadelphia, AR – June 26, 2017
I believe that a lot of the managers see favorites and treat people differently. They are only ok with people when they work hard but one thing messes up they aren't any good anymore. I loved my job because I love retail work but just don't see it fair.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Lampasas, TX – June 25, 2017
As a manager you will put in a lot of hours with little pay. Employee turn around is high; changes required to the store on a weekly basis. Not enough employees and many times left by self in the store (unsafe).
