Fast pace yet somewhat rewarding.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Man, WV – August 20, 2019
Is a great and growing company to work for. It is very fast paced and at times stressful during season changes with as much product is pushed on a store with minimum labor hours to use. However, once you have hired and trained a good crew with common goals, work flow cycle becomes like clockwork. I have learned many new skills since becoming the store manager such as inventory control, hiring/terminating, in store marketing, scheduling, labor budgeting, planning, and many others. The store manager HAS to be persistent with good work ethic and planning or you can expect to work over 50 hours a week as a salary employee. Everything about being a store manager for Dollar General is something I truly have become to enjoy, however its the pay that just doesn't equate to the amount of work you have to do. This is a hands on store manager type job so you can expect to not only be the store manager but everything else as well. If you're able to multitask, have high energy, and leadership qualities this is a job that will challenge you.
