"I worked for Dollar General for 4.5 great years. They are great with their employees and understand that their employees are the ones that allow them to succeed. Would still love to be there but circumstances would not allow it, and I wish them all the best."
"I've worked for Dollar General for at least a month now and it has been an interesting experience. It is a fast paced environment with plenty of opportunity for growth and improvement. We seek to provide quality customer service and meet the needs of our customers as they purchase products on a daily basis."
"I've worked for DG for 2 years and it has been an up and down love/hate relationship. It depends on who your DM is and what store you're in."
"Dollar General is mostly like any other retail outlet to work for; however, my experience with Dollar General was a very pleasant one and I would work for the company as a manager again in a heartbeat if I could handle the physical requirements of the position."
"I have been working with Dollar General for a few months and I have enjoyed the experience with the customers."
"I have worked with the company for 8 long years, and feel like I have aged at least 20. The pay isn't terrible for the key carriers and store manager, but it's still not worth it for everything you have to deal with. Employment with Dollar General is always a game of "How long can you take the bull?" As long as I have been here, I still completely understand when people only last a few weeks. It just means they stood up for themselves and had a backbone. Dollar General doesn't want employees, they want slaves. I know that is a strong word, but the expectations and complete disregard for employees' work/life balance is comparable to the age of industrialization. More money in the higher up's pockets, no matter the cost. If you work in a store, you're just a little peon. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. You'll do okay at DG if you're the kind of person who can just see it as a paycheck and let stuff roll off your back and just comply with whatever demands they make of your schedule/performance, no matter how unreasonable. I'm just not that kind of person. I care too much."
"If you're looking for a comfortable, easy IT gig with a decent salary and benefits, then Dollar General is worth considering. But if you care about things like modern technologies, efficient processes, and a well-organized IT environment, then steer clear of Dollar General. Their IT department is a chaotic, disorganized mess, with extremely outdated systems and processes."
"if you want to work 6 days a week, have vacations you can't relax while taking, and babysitting staff daily, then this is the job for you. And don't PO any of your workers cause they can call and 'tell' on you, which opens up an entirely new can of worms. Bad working conditions, no AC, hard to get good help, and did I mention 6 day work weeks? Upper management... no help, nothing is ever gonna be right, glad I'm not there anymore."
"Nice place to work, managers are fair in decisions and schedule decisions and pay."
"The very poor systems, and the focus on operations, hinders one's ability to drive or react to business effectively."
"I have been at Dollar General since May 2013. I have to say the manager there is very unappreciative of anything anyone does. It's all about him. We're lucky to get a break other than lunch. The paperwork he does about employee evaluations are fraudulent because he never monitors the employee like he says he does, he just writes something on the paper to make himself look good. Everything he reports to corporate is a lie. Even the way our store puts out freight isn't right but he tells them we do it."
"I have worked for Dollar General since 2006, it has been an overall good experience, meeting really good people and gaining job experience. I would love to move on away from retail and utilize my degree in mechanical engineering."
"Dollar General is a great company for someone looking for a job to get by with."
"Excellent company to work for because of the economy. They have hired into the professional ranks of the company to many uneducated or hourly people. This is not a way to help the company grow to the next level. They encourage education and growing within the company. They do take very good care of the employees."
