Sales Associate/Key Holder (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – January 21, 2017
It was a good place to work. I always had something to do. I learned how to count down drawers, and open registers,etc. The most enjoyable part was when I got to be out on the floor getting things done, it made me feel good to be able to day I got a lot done.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Mobile, AL – January 21, 2017
I worked my way up to associate to salaries store manger. What a waste of time. They don't take the proper time to train people just throw them to the wolves. I would never work here again. It's not worth the stress they put on the store managers
Manger (Former Employee) – Beverly Hills, FL – January 20, 2017

Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Sandy Springs, SC – January 20, 2017
Wages are the lowest in the country. Even if you get promoted to keyholder or asst manager, the pay is still awful. I made more money washing dishes at Dennys than i did as a keyholder at DG. There are NO benefits, no time and a half. The place is a revolvong door for employees. This makes it impossible to have a smooth running ship when your longest tenured employee has only been there a few months. And it greatly increases your work load because your always short handed 1 or 2 people. My store manager was fired for a number of bad things. And the new manager seemed out of place and even lazy at times. Overall it was my worst job experiance of my 12 years in the work force. Avoid at all costs unless you are really desperate. Even then, make it a temporary pit stop. Its not a long term job and there is no advancment. Corporate is very stingy also.
Small stores that are easy to memorize. Daily duties are fairly simple.
Revolving door of employees, always short handed, terrible pay, no benefits, no advancement.
The job was good at first I started out a cashier. I thought my manager was nice and good at first. Then I watched her move a couple of people out the way so I could get moved up to Assistant Manager. I kept the position for almost a year, but then I noticed she was doing the same thing to me. I did not like my experience that I had with the dollar general that I worked at.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Lake Charles, LA – January 20, 2017
This is a great company to work for. The management I've seen, not only as an employee but, as a customer is horrific. I know the struggles we deal with on a daily basis, but I can not begin to fathom why anyone would treat customers as if they are all thieves. I am embarrassed to work here sometimes because of how bad it is getting. Customers see our struggles and sympathize with us, but why doesn't management?
Good place too shop but the assistant managers suck
Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Apple Valley, CA – January 20, 2017
Good place too shop but the assistant managers suck they don't do any work At all. They just sit in the back and walk around the store on there phones. But its a stop between a gas station and a grocery store
Manager on duty (Former Employee) – Englewood, FL – January 20, 2017
It was an enjoyable place to work, but you can never get caught up. Too much overstock and not enough room to put things. Normally, that spells opportunity, but the money just isn't there to make it worth while, for most people.
Lead Stocker and Cashier (Former Employee) – Stone Mountain, GA – January 20, 2017
I loved working here even tho I thought they could pay more. But it was only part time for me so it was not a big deal. Most people only get 24 hours a week. I was working 16-20. I had weekends off. Easy job once you learn the store. As a cashier you get a chance to meet a lot of people. Some nice, Some are very rude but If you know how to not take people serious you will get a good laugh everyday. I heard of a lot of stores do getting robbed. That was my only issue. If you give then you could be fired or let go but if you do not than you are putting your life at risk
I've never had a job but am looking to gain a job . i am 16 and in hih school
Team Member (Former Employee) – Euclid, OH – January 20, 2017
typical work day is unpacking boxes being a clerk cleaning and helping others. what i learned was that in order to be a good business you need to be a team and work together. id like a manager that told me what to do but, was also there. my work place culture is fast and interactive no hard parts of the job as long as were getting along. most enjoyable part of the job is talking to ohers.
