Assaulted by a customer for asking for ID for beer on 1st day. $8.00 an hour 8-22 hours a week. Reported another employee for theft and constant verbal abuse. Was terminated for doing store recovery they called it laziness for not stocking because the register lines were full. Was not allowed to count drawer at shift start. I was the only male at the store. Since then that store has gone through over a dozen male cashiers only 8 months. Store support does not care had many customers state glad to see guys working there. Store is currently all female staff.

I haven’t left yet, gonna be putting my two weeks in. I’m a keyholder. I was left alone closing. I felt very unsafe. I understand being left alone during the day but when when I close. No customers or anything. Something could fall on me & not able to get to a phone or get robbed. I don’t have a car either. I’ve never worked at such a bad place.

I am a previous employee at DG. All these reviews I have read tell so much of the truth. DG employees are under paid for the work they have to do. Having to run the register and stock merchandise running back n forth. They never have more than 1 or 2 people working and if there's 2 people one is in the back of the store while the cashier is swomped with customers. I took this job cause I was desperate at the time. I was a previous store manager at FD. But I was driving 1 1/2 hours to get home after having to work 15 hours some days I resigned and I regret ever going to DG.

Why do these rich companies improperly train and pay low unlivable wages? Minimum wage across the US for any job should be $15 an hour with no taxes withheld! Plus the employee should automatically get 40 hours a week. I would like to see congress live on minimum wage!

I was terminated for violation of company policy. The training was not adequate so i did not know i was violating company policy. I thought as an SM it was my job to protect company assests. I had 2 employees that would ride the clock at the end of the night. They were not working and end of day had been completed. I sought advice from a more senior SM that was also a trainer, since i was new to the position, after this happened for a month straight and was told to clock them out when my key holder had ran end of day. I did as i was directed just the one time and was fired for it. I feel that i should've been coached and trained properly instead of just thrown away like garbage. I had dedicated 3 1/2 years of my life to this company, sacrificing my home life and essentially neglecting my children. I got no help from my DM when it came to my lazy, rude, self entitled, disrespectful ASM. Has my life financially been more difficult since being let go? Yes, but I'm actually not unhappy all of the time anymore which my 5 kids see, so it was actually a blessing in disguise.
