    I worked at Dollar General part-time

    Pros

    Good if you like fast paced work, and doing a mixture of all jobs

    Cons

    Pay isn't great no matter how much you work, also they employ you part time, but work you fulltime and underpay you, employees aren't respected, they say they can work with your schedule if you are a parent or have appointments but you still end up in trouble for taking care of your family.
