I enjoyed working here. I loved that my boss took a chance with me giving my age and allowed me to become a 3rd key holder. I proved that age is just a number and i could handle the management role. The hardest part of my job would be handling frustrated customers, although i resolved every issue presented.

Pros: it was a job
Cons: its not the best place to work
My day was completing my tasks as required and at times tasks of other employees whose work ethics were not of high standards. I found that the company overall had inconsistent management within all levels of operations and being a male was more difficult to advance. Unable to receive an employee handbook on rules, regulations, employee benefits and – more... rights. In consideration of the employees I found high absenteeism of base level employees with favoritism of a selective few jeopardized employee safety. – less

A typical day at Dollar General was hard work. I would always have a smile on my face, and was willing to help anyone who asked for assistance. While I was employed I learned the more about customer service, and became more of a people person that I am today. The management here was wonderful. You could ask the manager anything and she would help you – more... out the fullest, no questions asked. The co-workers on the other hard were a bit more rough to work with, Depending who you were working with; I would be the one doing all of the work, and being under all of the pressure with no help. The hardest part of the job was when a stock truck would pull up. I would be using the cash register, helping people at whatever they needed, as well as stocking the shelves and cleaning at the same time. Though, I didn't mind it, but it was a lot for one person. I was still happy and manageable. The one thing I enjoyed most about working at Dollar General was the management.. – less
