Sucks

Terrible job, go to college, start a business. Anything is better than this place. Homelessness might even be better than this garbage work environment

Short breaks, and lazy management

Overworked and underpaid

The company tries to have a "work family" feel to it but in the end you're just cases shipped to them. The expectations are extremely high and the work very physically demanding. There's little to no compensation for preforming above and beyond. There's no incentive pay for taking on extra responsibilities. No overtime pay for supervisors and they are almost always working 60 hours a week. At your interview they'll tell you you're going to be working 40 hours a week. But in almost 3 years I've never worked less than 50 a week.

Poor management, great coworkers

The management is very inconsistent and never around when you actually need them. However, the coworkers are what make this job worth the struggles.

Third World Operations

If you love working in a third world diamond mine this is your perfect job. It has the exact amount of coordination, leadership and quality of work environment. The leadership works the ones they don't like, into the ground while giving those they do like ie the ones who kiss their ring a cush no stress work load. Management consists of third world dictator type who ride around in convertibles and siphon off their country's resources. If this fits your style of management and environment you'll succeed. This is why they are in last place of all Dollar General Distribution Centers and have a 80% turnover rate of new hires in the first 30 days.

Pros

You don't get locked in the building 24/7

Cons

Just the fact that you're thinking about working here

Just okay

Only ok didn’t like it too much everything was out of place and I didn’t feel too connected to the management. I can do that at another place. So it wasn’t worth it

Worst Management “Team” I’ve ever had.

Dollar General is the worst company to work for. They don’t care about their employees whatsoever and will treat you horribly. They will not approve any of your time off requests and will not accommodate appointments.

Good money, not very good hours

The distribution center was a fresh facility, so it was very cold. The freezer being below 0. If you can handle cold and not knowing what time you will be getting off every day it would be a perfect fit.

Good company

Good company to work for. Plenty of room for advancement. Open door policy with managers. Good team work atmosphere. The pay is good for the work you do.

Worst Place I've Ever Worked

I worked here for almost 4 years and it was the lowest point of my life. I went from 4 panic attacks a week to none at all after I quit. This company doesn't care about it's employees. All they care about is how much product they push out the door. They overwork you to the point of exhaustion and then write you up when you can't keep up anymore. I hurt my back so bad I couldn't walk for 2 weeks and my first day back they put me in a department where I had to lift whole pallets worth of 50+ pound cases. And then wrote me up for not making rate. I had to take FMLA again because it threw my back out again. No job is worth this mistreatment.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

You wont get any hours.

Dishonest management, they will blatantly lie too you about hours/pay. They hired me as full time and told me I would be working 40-60 hours per week. We were lucky to get 25 per week. I stayed 2 months before I found a job that would actually let us work the entire day. Maybe its changed now but they had way too many people for as little work as was available.

Terrible place full of lies

This is an absolute lie, they will not pay you 18$ an hour that number is just to get you in the door. Management talks to you out of term. Alot of disrespect in this building and alot of lies and empty promises. I will never recommend this place to anyone

They’ll work you until you either get injured or get written up enough times for the dumbest reasons.

If working hard and getting hit with more work is your thing, this is the job for you. All this company cares about is production. They give you a goal which is hard to hit with everyone crowded inside that warehouse . Losing even a few minutes to use the restroom or help someone else will put you behind and you will be punished for it . Seems like the production goal keeps going higher and management does not care about you at all.

Productive

Good benefits, pay rate ain't bad, also there is enough work to get 40+ hrs every week Location is not far from home. Every employees with perfect attendence get a bonus check. My Trainers were really sweet and patient to me

Was good at first, but got bad

It was a good job at first, but then all of the good management found better jobs and it just got bad. They push their workers too hard and fire a lot of people but expect the limited workers to keep up with the high volume. There's always gonna be favoritism at companies, but it's really bad here. Some people get to do whatever they want and miss as much as they want but if you're not a favorite than you're screwed. They're constantly hiring new people bc they can't keep people to work for them. You're never gonna move up unless you're a major suck up. Overall would not recommend

Pros

Not strict on dress code.

Cons

Overtime every week. High rate for small warehouse
