    I worked at Dollar General full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Guaranteed weekly pay, paid time off

    Cons

    Awful insurance, long hours with managers frequently working 70+ hours and 7 days a week due to cutting hours on hourly employees. They’re aware they’re paying you salary so they work you to the bone and if you calculate it hourly you’re barely making more than minimum wage
