"Dollar General was a great beginning job just to make money on the side, although it is not at all what I want to do for my future and how I want to proceed with life. I believe it is a great retail job for anybody currently looking for one."

"Absolute catastrophe! Store open with very few employees. Assistant Manager at breaking point. Manager sick. District Manager absolutely no help at all. Company only sees the bottom line. DO NOT care about employees. Work your butt off for pennies."

"I was employeed with Dollar General since June of 2018. I loved my job & especially loved all of my customers. My co-workers & I got along great. We managed to survive changing of managers 4 different times. The 2nd & 3rd managers promoted me & all together gave me 4 raises. Things were great. Then an incident occured & I had to report my 4th manager to the DM & Loss prevention. Nothing was done & I was retaliated against by that manager. The manager wrote me up 4 times in less than a week,threatened to demote or fire me, & wrote me up the 5th time about 2wks after the 4 write ups which resulted in my termination. The manager nit picked at me & intentionally got me fired"

"I have been through 4 district managers. This last one is from clothing retail and has no idea what the daily work load is at dollar general. The store I worked for was consistently 20-30% over sales plan. This continued for the 3 years I was mgr.This store has been #1 in the district of 20 stores and #2 in the region of 190 stores for over a year. The company doesn't back any employee. The DM and Rd continuously harass and intimidate you when they visit. You will never do good enough. I was upset with stress of under staffed and continued increase in business every time they came. There was never a question if they could help you with anything. The last time I blew up at the DM and gave the keys to him.I called after I left and calmed down but he wouldn't answer. The Employee Relations department took one phone interview with me and never interviewed any witnesses before denying my reinstatement. It is all about the comfort of the DM. This DM has fired or had quit, 13 managers in one year. Unfortunately the majority are females and managers that have been with DG many years. I would not recommend working with this company unless you start out as a district manager, regional director or a higher corporate position. Dollar General will never care about their employees at the store level. I read one of these reviews where they said we should have a state wide walk out! Lets make it nation wide. Get those DM's in the store working every day trying to keep up."

"I would not recommend anyone apply at any Dollar General. It's not a very nice place to work. You get an unrealistic list of tasks they expect you to accomplish. You're expected to work single-coverage for hours, and you're still expected to get the task done. The Store Managers only care about making themselves look good. Stores are dirty, shelves are usually empty, and there is always product blocking the aisles. The employees get no credit or acknowledgment except when the customers complain--then it's always the employees' fault."

"The company fails to uniformly enforce policies and procedures using a discriminatory selection process. I have witnessed employees targeted for termination by wasting valuable resources and time creating speculation and false statements to remove unwanted employees. It’s amazing the media hasn’t been notified of the poor standards and practices at this company. I voluntarily resigned because of the unprofessional and unethical practices at this company,"

"Hiring unqualified managers to manage stores is the Dollar General rule. Low wages. Leaving one employee to work alone in these stores is an unsafe practice. Most stores are located in bad neighborhoods and leaving only one person to run a cash register is asking for trouble. Having managers constantly pushing the so-called minimum standard of unloading 50 plus items off a roll-tainer in one hour is not humanly possible. Having a manager who lacks the ability to communicate with other employees is not acceptable. But at the end of the day, I understand the DG concept: IT'S ALL ABOUT MAKING CORPORATE MONEY and the hell with the workers. If you're seeking employment with Dollar General I'd advise you seek another job with a different company."

"I guess the policy doe Dollar General is the main problem. It seems that it is ok to work 2 employees per shift leaving only 1 when the other employee goes to lunch. The customers always have to wait in line and employees are always trying to get everything done. There is sometimes when only one employee is there for hours. There is no way that customers are getting great service, and employees are not given the opportunity to meet the work expectations, which are very unrealistic. You must be able to work at a fast pace, multitask and handle stressful situations. The job is not for everyone. I really don't see how anyone could say that it is a good job because there are so many issues with the daily routine and nothing seems to get accomplished. When I leave, it feels like a whole wasted, unproductive and stressful day. There is never any hope to have a good day because there is never enough staff to make that happen. I do not recommend this job to anyone."
