You need to hire better regional managers and better bosses over the regional managers. The district manager I worked for was prejudice, and unqualified for his job. He admitted to my co-workers at the time that he has never worked a register before and does not know how to work one. He also has never worked inside a Dollar General store. He was not professional at all, he had too much favoritism and oh he made the management fire me because the old store manager who hired me put in her two weeks notice and he wanted to get rid of the people she hired. So you really need to have better people in management. You need to raise up the salary because the salary you give people is only good for high school students.

I applied here because the posting states "Full-time" positions PLUS full benefits. In Texas full-time is at a least 40 hrs a week. This is what i'm hoping for.

If I was in charge and if it was possible I would have 2 night time stockers. One of the stockers being a key holder. I would rotate all my key holders to make sure that not just one key holder is just for that typical shift. To me I believe that if the stocking was done at night instead of during business hours when our customers are shopping, that our customers wouldn't be having to move around the ppl who are stocking or the store wouldn't be so horribly cluttered with U-Boats or Rolltainers and empty boxes. I just think that if stocking could be done at night at least 3 to even maybe 4 nights a week especially on truck day. Our stores could be ready to rock and roll for the next day .And our Managers wouldn't be as stressed. Thats just my point of view as a Key Holder.
