3rd Key Manager (Former Employee), Justin, TXAugust 11, 2014
Pros: awesome managment
Cons: short breaks, short lunch
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.

Its not the best place to work
Lead Sales Associate (Former Employee), Moriarty, NMAugust 10, 2014
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

Pros: i have a good manager who is easy to work for.
Cons: not enough money
I enjoyed working there but it's only part-time and you make min. wage. It's a great job for someone who is going back to school and needing extra money.

Productive work place with new challenges weekly.
Shift Manager/ Assistant Manager (Current Employee), McIntosh, ALAugust 9, 2014
Each day you have to encounter so many different personalities of customers. It pushes you to build on your management skills. Co-workers are your team members.
Hardest part is to be able to put friendship to the side. The most enjoyable is when your hard work comes together and you complete your task.

A decent place to start your work history, but not good enough to stay.
Sales Associate/Cashier, and Stock (Current Employee), Ellenwood, GAAugust 8, 2014
Cons: almost everything
The best part of the job are the customers and the co-workers. For the worst part I'd have to say management and the work load only to get paid minimum wage.

No Balance at all
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Grand Prairie, TXAugust 8, 2014
Pros: friendly customers
Cons: employees fighting
Only worked two days a week.

I learned nothing that was helpful in my work areas.

The manager at the time was not there when I needed him. ALways left the store with only me working there at night. And constantly locked himself in the females bathroom doing unmenchinable things.

Co-workers had difficulties working with each other and argued non-stop.

Trying – more... to cleanup to store with so little time.

Only thing that was enjoyable part of the job was going home. – less

Hard Workplace
Part-Time Sales Associate (Former Employee), Boston, PAAugust 8, 2014
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
