Its busy and never boring
3rd key management position (Former Employee), Runnelstown, MSSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: the hours were flexible
Cons: .25 cent a year raise... really?????
A typical day@ work I was always busy in which I like to be. I learned how to multitask in which I think everyone needs to learn how to do in the day we live in. Management was definitely an experience I will never forget, I had the opportunity to step-up,and learn more about the jod and I did. My co-workers were great, we all got along and worked together. – more... The hardest part of the job was the lifting, pulling, and pushing of the freight we received every week. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking and meeting new people, I also loved counting money, and doing the paperwork. – less

Dead-end job with no support from cooperate management
Manager (Current Employee), OklahomaSeptember 16, 2014
This job could be fun and more profitable for Dollar General if they really followed their corporate mission statement of "Serving Others".

The wages are low, corporate management plays no part in the day to day operations of a store, and the store managers are forced to milk employees for every bit of labor they can to meet the corporate quotas.

If – more... you need a temporary position while completing college or if you have a child that needs a prod to attend college then this job is right for you!

Expect your low earning customers to treat you like scum of the Earth and most welfare recipients will treat you as if it is necessary to treat them like royalty! – less

Good Company in a small town area.
Shipping Loader (Current Employee), Scottsville, KYSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: plenty of hours
Cons: quite a bit of turnover
Lots of tough work, but manageable, by those willing to put in the effort. Advancement availability also for those willing to put in the time and effort. You can get out of it, what you put into it.

not a good place to work for
Key Holder/ Sales Associate Lead (Former Employee), Pinckney, MISeptember 15, 2014
I was a sales associate, basically a cashier. I was never allowed to get over time, I had to take longer breaks to avoid it. The general manager said they would be flexible with my schedule but never was. They played favorites with the other employees and was a bit sexist. And every time I asked for a day off in advance, I would be denied it.

In the work space
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), North Birmingham, ALSeptember 15, 2014
Being at this job I fell in love with people, this job was face to face costumer service action all day long. This job is physically demanding, stocking freight, changing plan-a-grams, sweeping, mopping, and lastly going all around you store for customers and security purposes. Threw out the day I would let the store employees on shift know what they – more... needed to do for the day and what the goals were for our day, receiving vendors, stocking, most importantly taking care of our customers as well as keeping ourselves safe in our environment. – less

very stressful
Cashier/Customer (Current Employee), FortPierce, FlSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: helping the community
Cons: unecessary stressful conditions
You were always rushing to put away stock, so they didn't have high payroll for the rest of the week until the truck comes back.
They made you feel like you can stay or leave because there are so many people wanting a job. They really don't care about you at all. That is why the turn over is sooo high. They had 5 different managers come and go in the – more... almost 3 years that I am there. I did enjoy working there because of all the same customers I see everyday. They were so sweet. I miss them. – less
