A typical day at work would be the moment you walk in you clock in and move carts and other items outside. I learned how to operate a cash register. Management was okay I think it would have been better if my schedule was set every week instead of me having to call in everyday to find out if i was working the next day or not. My co-workers were very friendly and helpful. The hardest part of the job would be going back and fourth between the register and stocking shelves because there is no system to know when someone is at the register but it was manageable. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the customers.
long lunch breaks, very friendly co-workers, offer 401K
calling in to see if your working, a lot of overstock, crowded walk ways

Good but if it was a different manager it would have been better! ! The manager was mean to the staff but one who she was friends with who she gave more hours but the other employees including myself didn't get hours like her friend.

Dollar general was a Fun place to work at times but it was also stressful as well because two people work one store at a time. So they are always loaded doe with customers and you still have to stock and clean while taking care of endless lines of customers

Easy job, but you are overworked and under paid. Sometimes you would be scheduled at all then other times you would be scheduled for a certain amount of hours and then it extremely exceed those originally scheduled hours.

District managers and other higher management ask too much of employees in a typical work day. There isn't enough time or schedule hours to do everything that they want you to do. Basically life revolved around work. I was working everyday because employees would call in.

Too demanding for what they pay you. My schedule was given to me almost with no notice, 1-3 days before I had to work. No flexibility. Micro management is a big problem. Too much is expected. My second job was not a concern to them. Even part time workers couldn't have a second job considering the schedule was put out a day or two before you had to work that schedule. Was asked to come off break & ring customers out & break later which is illegal but they don't care. No hours, luckily I was full time & only needed 30 hours which they had to give me. Wouldn't recommend anyone working there unless you just got out of jail & need to get on your feet
Short tempered customers, no job security, no flexibility, horrible pay
