So I've worked for Dollar General for over a year now and was promoted to third key back in early June. I was told by my manager that my pay would now be $8.25 an hour. My hours increased by almost twenty and so did my paycheck, so I assumed I had received my raise. Today I checked my most recent paycheck on the store computer and discovered I was only being paid $7.50 an hour. I asked the assistant manager and was told it was the correct amount. I then asked my manager and she told me she had thought it was $8.25 and basically played it off as being confused. I was also under the impression that anyone with the company for a year was allowed a vacation, and yet when I asked I was denied, though May was my one year mark. I'm the youngest in the store and I know they take advantage of me sometimes, complaining if I ask for my scheduled breaks and not paying me for working overtime. Can anyone please tell me if I'm being cheated?
