I believe that the managers shouldn't be the only ones with opinions. When I was working with dollar general. My assistant manager was always the one to do the schedule and i feel that she shouldn't have always got to work mornings and evenings, she should have switched up to work all shifts. Bc they make us sales associates work all hours and wanna call us in on off days bc people want come in but only do that bc they know I wanted more hours than like 5

Make the curb appeal neater instead of an eye soar. Better customer service, employees would not be able to stand at the front entrance and take a some break. About every store I have visited there are ample cigerate butts and this makes the store entrance look so unprofessional or appealing to guests that come into your store to shop. We live in the country and shop at Dollar General at least 3 times a week instead of driving 22 miles to the city. Dollar General has a great store and a lot of potential for improvement.
