horrible in Lafayette, Indiana

32 months ago

(continued)

Then, I had to wait even more for that information to be sent back. When it did, I was called, and the manager asked me to come in (with the outfit on- yellow shirt/black slacks) a few days later. I wasn't doing anything, so it was fine, but I also didn't have any yellow shirts or money to buy one. My older sister ended up buying one for me, and was a little angry that I was asked to come in right away (little did I know that this was going to be a major problem).

I went in and sat in that stupid little break room for 3 hours watching their training videos. I was told that after watching them, I was going to be able to train a little bit, but when the videos were finished, I was told to leave. For two weeks, I was never put on the schedule. When I would talk to the manager about it, she would say that they just don't have the hours.

Then, a person was transferred to another store, and I was allowed to finally get some hours. I was told that the hours would range from 10-15, but they quickly shot up to 25- which was fine with me.

During the beginning days of work, I quickly found out how crappy they are. The first day I was on the register by myself was also the first day I had to close. When I went in to work the next day, my manager told me that I was being too slow (Really? I was NEW.). The AM was always complaining about the SM, and for good reason. She told me that she found a new job, and put in her 2 weeks notice over 3 weeks ago. She had also requested to be off on the weekends, and when she saw she was scheduled for a Saturday, she just left and never came back.

For a few weeks, my SM was constantly in a bad mood and bitching about how stressed she was. She once got on my case because I had a cash pick-up (this store has the managers count out the money and take it to a safe), but then later apologized because she was "stressed."

She then got super angry with me later.

LOL LOL What planet are you living on? Dollar General is about serving themselves. They come up with all kinds of ridiculous ideas and expect overworked employees to impliment them. Where is the time? They expect way to much for the pay received. Or are you one of those managers that are on salary and get all those wonderful bonuses. That the hourlys work their butts off for you to receive. Wake up.. Or corporate will have you out the door next. And be sure not to get hurt or you will be gone even faster. LOL

horrible in Lafayette, Indiana said: Generously? I applied for this job back in June, In June, I was told that I would be hired, was officially hired in June, but didn't start working until late July. I've been talking negatively about them about a week after I was hired because of the non-work and constant excuses I was given. I just happened to find this site recently.

I have nothing against the job itself, but this manager is constantly saying one thing, and then changing it the next minute. When I went in to look at the schedule this past Friday, I asked her if everything was actually going to be over in August (which is what she told me), and she suddenly got mad at me and said that I had never quit. When I explained that she told me that I wouldn't be able to work past August because of the new work scheduling system they're going to get, she backtracked and told me that I "misunderstood;" that I would be able to work there on the weekends (and essentially never have a day off between DG and the school). But since I was given more hours at the school, I went ahead and quit.

Don't assume I'm some horrible worker. My manager likes me, and once she realized that I wasn't going to just leave the school for DG, she tried to work with me, and wants me to still be there. Don't preach at me about "serving others." I know what the environment is supposed to be like. All of my jobs have been in fields that serve others.

You are right Dollar General is the worst company to work for!!!!!

The Dollar General experience I had was ridiculous!!!!!! They didn't want to work at all.

DG sucks, period. When remodeling a store they will pay about minimum wage to sweat in the summer sun lifting and unloading. No bonus for the work you did, nothing. They pay pennies and expect miracles. I never offer to work on days I am off, because it's barely worth the gas money to go do it.

It's a discount chain that competes with Family Dollar and the other bargain basement operations. To expect more than minimum amount employee concerns is to expect too much.
