Store managers are needed to be in the stores from 8am until at least 6pm to make payroll without help with only 1 real day off, if no one calls in sick. Management judges workers very quickly before trying to get to know you. Stores are purposely kept understaffed by weekly corporate-mandated scheduling practices usually in the form of unsubstantiated hour allowances which forces workers of all levels to perform the work of three ranging from cashier, stocking, cleaning and money auditing on a single shift while trying to uphold the company's draconian and overall impractical weekly workflow.

Cons Everything. Dont be a manager if you cant balance easily, especially if you have a family. Store managers are held back due to payroll problems like over scheduling part time help.
Pros None. Dollar general was the worst place to work for. But it being retail it does drain your energy and emotion. I used to love coming to work but the bad customers took a toll on me and made me hate coming to work.
Coworkers and manager were amazing to work with we were all a team. Cons Pay less. Dollar General is perhaps one of the most illogical companies I have the misfortune to work under.
