Work & Life Balance


Sales Associate in Germantown, MD

nice people with a great work environment
Working for dollar general is really nice its a nice laid back job that's easy to do but the only problem is the hours there extremely short if you work part time.

The distribution centers for DG are an absolute mess, with no hope in sight. Being a truck driver for this company is rewarding financially, but the constant stress and unnecessary issues that happen simply because there is a total lack of effective oversight/supervision when the DCs load trailers, really makes you consider finding a new job regularly. Product is loaded completely out of order, no stickers or dividers indicating what product belongs to this store or the next store. Forces you to sit idly for hours on end waiting for a response from DG when stores refuse deliveries because the DC misloaded a stores product. You better hope you never make weekend plans, because you're going to be the one dealing with the consequences from someone else not doing their jobs. DG MUST improve supervision at the distribution centers, they MUST ensure that each and every trailer, whether it be a fresh trailer or a dry trailer, is loaded properly and by the standards they themselves set. You cannot expect to retain employees, especially good employees, if issues are not fixed and you just keep letting the same problems happen.

Dollar General is a great place to work if you find the right store. Lots of overtime and always paid on time. pay is not great, but job isn't hard and you can get plenty of hours

Management doesn't know how to run the department and everyone is quitting. The drivers know more what's going on than the managers and its getting old and making drivers have no family time at home.
Lead Sales Associate/Key Holder in Berlin, NJ

Overall not a bad job, but certainly not the best pay for someone will real bills. For the amount of money the company makes, they can afford to pay their employees more. Unless you're an assistant or store manager, you really aren't making that much, and the company is pretty serious about making sure people don't reach overtime. Besides that, it's a typical retail job. However, I've worked at multiple locations for the company and all of my managers have been great and very flexible with my schedule.
