I am currently a store manager and was thinking to myself, was this a good employment decision. After reading these reviews and knowing that most are true, I am sure that I made a bad choice. The store I took over had been w/o a manager for a long time and it showed, back room full,,sets were months behind, shelves were empty. The ASM was bitter because they had not been picked for SM and had infected the other employees. The other employees don't want to come to work so I do many 13 plus hour days and was recently told that I needed to spend more time at the store. We are a busy store and I am stuck at a till all day and am falling behind on other duties. Usually I am the only one working in the store during the day and have 1 person at night. The others won't even answer their phones. Training was 5 days of doing another SMs stocking in their store. This job will only get worse, time to start looking for a new job. How bad is the job when being umemployed looks better. Run away as fast and far as you can. Not even a good first job....

Worked there for almost 6 years. Dollar General just doesn't care about it's employees. After 6 years, still making less than 10/hr, sometimes only getting 15 hrs/week. No benefits at all. Can't afford to stay

I've worked at dollar general on and off since 2006 most recently 2017-2018 I was terminated without warning or right ups for using this keyholders key to delete NOT void but DELETE an item that was rung up that a customer did not want.. I was NOT aware that deleting an item was the same as a void. This particular key holder gave me her key all the time, I NEVER took it without her knowledge she would hand it to me. I was terminated and told she would be dealt with as well but in fact she still works there to this day.. Is that not considered wrongful termination if she was not held accountable for this as well? Mind you I LOVED my job. I was always on time, normally there early. Would always come in if needed on off days never turned them down, I WALKED to work in the snow, I even worked while feeling like death with the flu running 104 fever almost passing out bc they couldn't find any one to replace me so I could call out.. I always went above and beyond to make sure my customers as well as my coworkers and management etc were happy! I would love to be able to work dollar general again! Even my manager said she would speak very highly of me to ANYBODY when needing references. I'd jus like to know does that put me on the no rehire list an is there anything I can do to be taken off? And was it wrongful termination since no actions were taken against the key holder?

Poor working conditions. Worked three days in a row, 7a to 10p, all by myself with no coverage for breaks or a lunch, and was criticized for not always accomplishing goals set by SM, which were unreasonable on busy days. Pay was terrible for the expectations and there were basically zero benefits with the job.

Because I was forced to. I came in on my shift and looked at the schedule. Noticed that my name didn't have Assistant by it anymore, but yet nobody had said anything to me about the changes. So I was curious to know if my pay went with my title.so when I looked up my pay stub my money had been taken away also. And there you have it not even a word spokin to me about any of this . I worked for about an hour and gathered my things clocked out and went home.. I haven't even been contacted by any of the managers to ask me wat was going on. I worked at store 11621 in Bradford Arkansas. The manager of this store is the rudest person to everyone in this town. And something needs to be done about it. I was done wrong by her customer will tell you how rude she is. She has to do her own surveys jus to get good comments about her n her very nasty store...
