"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."

"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."

"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."

"This company is, without doubt, the most poorly organized and unprofessional group of lost souls out there. Yes, there are a few good people but between the constant attempts to squeeze their managers for every drop of blood (today I heard from HR - Taking a mandatory conference call isn't work! and constant reminders that we employees are all thieves...), it's just a sad little control-freak of a company. Rated the 4th WORST company to work for in 2013! Only do it as a last resort!"

"When I initially applied for the job and interviewed, I was told there were numerous opportunities for growth. They never said that it was only an opportunity if management liked you. I was looked over twice for a promotion that I felt I could have performed and did well at. By the end I was hurt and mad that I was never given the chance to move up with Dollar General.The company is not a hard one to work for nor is the work hard. It is tedious as with any retail job but can be very rewarding ."

"Ask lots of questions upfront. Check the store physical environment before signing on."

What don't you like about working at Dollar General?

"Very long hours for store managers were the norm, and there was absolutely no work-life balance. It was difficult to get qualified help. There were lots of promises made for career advancement, but no support or mentoring from district or higher level. Store maintenance was horrible. It was not uncommon to have to deal with no AC all summer. IT and equipment problems were the norm. Sometimes it added 10-15 hours on your already long week."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Institute a five-day work week for store managers. Give the assistant manager more responsibility and chances to earn bonuses. Recognize and reward store employees."
