Easy job
Supervisor Betty Sweetman (Former Employee), Lone Grove, OKJuly 14, 2015
stocking and cleaning up. I learned how to do manager duties and open and close the store. the management was a lot of help, but lacked some communication skills. the hardest part of the job was trying to find someone to come in and help when someone else called in. the most enjoyable part was stocking.

Overall, it was a decent place to work.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Galatia, ILJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Customers, being around people
Cons: management was poor
Dollar General was a fairly decent place to work. I loved being around the customers, especially the regulars. I learned many different skills and how to handle different situations. The only thing that bothered me was the current management and how much drama there was between the manager and some of the sales associates and other managers.

Pros: great customers, some of the employees are great
Cons: not enough hours, not enough money
I loved working for them. I just wish when I moved back to Florida that I could have transferred. They just didn't seem to care about keeping someone that was working for them for 5 to 6 years for them.

Assistant Manager (Former Employee), arcadia laJuly 13, 2015
A typical day at work is hard work. I really enjoy all the work tha I do at and for this company the co-workers are nice we all get along and come together to get our work done. The hardest part of the job I think is the rude customers. But the most enjoyable part is making the customers happy.

Small box retailer, fastgrowing company
Assistant Manager and work closely (Current Employee), Augusta, GAJuly 13, 2015
Pros: Always busy, satisfying with job completions.
Cons: very little time with family.
DG is a fast growing company, it is a small box retailer who depends on the Store Manager to do most of the work to include all clerical/office/reports, claims/damages, maintenance, recieving, stocking, cashiering, POG sets, check in vendors, and much more. Has a small staff with equally small budget to have employees help run the store and service customers.

cashier/ part-time manager (Current Employee), akron ohJuly 13, 2015
My manager would always make sure that out needs came first.

A day at Dollar General are regularly busy helping checking out costumers. While we were away from the register we would have stocking to do, to make our store looks full of product. Each day is full of exciting and new turn of events that I get to experience each and everyday. I plan on taking everything I have learned and apply it to myself to make me grow as a worker.
