From what I've heard after speaking with the manager working at the checkout, they close early most days because they don't have enough employees.

Re: People keep quitting left and right at my local dollar general
If I were a retail business HR recruiter, looking for people that could at least read and write and run a cash register, I would stop by places like D.G. on the regular.

It wouldn't take much to be able to offer them just a little bit more, and still be way under paying them.

The turnover is likely caused by getting a better offer by the end of their first shift.

D.G., better up your game!

Re: People keep quitting left and right at my local dollar general
been working pt time there since last august,

I was just about forced to, being that I total'd my Jeep of almost 5 yrs due to an OUI , hafta stay with Local work until the spring/summer

as a supervisor/'key carrier' i started getting about 30-35 hr/ weeks until after thanksgiving- then almost instantly dropped down to 15 scheduled hours a week if i was lucky, all the while they continued to hire on sleuths of associates 'to help keep up with the store stocking' as Receiving gets crazy cluttered in the smaller space stores

SO, then they let the soupz/key carriers scrape the barrel for hours just tryina get a roof over their head while they keep turning over new Associate leafs and move around their ASMs and even store managers on a constant basis.. store mgrs work alot of hours but they sit on a 60k plus salary, ASM guaranteed 35 plus hrs a week , then they just hound the hell outta the Keys on their days off knowing by 'n large they prolly dont have an excuse put up, when they could avoid the stupid nightmarish headaches all together and book their MODs with respectable weekly hours that could brighten the mood of, ohhhh i dunno, STAYING NOT HOMELESS...

it can be crazy stressing seeing the Legion scheduling that you're only do for two or three workdays a week, 15 net hours Tops while they SM constantly calls you u in (since u can always be a MOD for christs sake) almost every single god d$#% day ur not scheduled to begin with

going back to my old FT paving job by april-may tho, it's been a bit of a headache and nightmare.

it's a certain thing that any day you work there ur gonna get a few oddball customers too, just churning their stupid mental butters looking for ways to goad you for not being able to teleport up there instantly and lick their magical taint since ur the only person working the entire store and can't be two places at once..

their pay here is 9-10hr. they don't get 40hrs.
they know they need staff,but are being told to keep employees hours down

Kind of difficult for Dollar General when they were appologizing for raising their prices from $1 to $1.25. They cannot afford to raise their wages to pay employees to fifteen or sixteen dollars an hour.

I went into the local DG once. I just needed some cheap bluetooth earbuds. I asked her where they were. She was degusted and shouted, "at the end of the aisle!" What aisle? She just stared and never answered. Said go fuck yourself and left.

Re: People keep quitting left and right at my local dollar general
The only career position at DG is the manager and assistant manager position! Stocking and checkout is student work or a house mom's idle time work! These are not career positions designed for a living wage!

Get off your ass, go to trade school or college, get an internship for experience and work! Yes it sucks but it builds character. I had to do it, many do. This is how our system is designed. This is how you create merit. Unfortunately affirmative action destroys merit and puts incompetent people into positions they can't handle and society suffers for it.

... there's alot more reasons than that, that somebody may work there

most common i find up here- myself included- is being in between seasonal layoff for laboring or warehousing positions, cause it's too cold or the warehouse cant afford so many hourlies to keep on when the outdoor product drops demand out like 10 fold - so people like me that live in town and had SHTF for transpo or legal stuff sign on for the forseeable future and try to rack up as many hours as they can -

That's probably why alot of them get pissed at pompous pricks coming in and waggin their vaginas to and fro in absolute smugness, 'cause the corporation keep flooding in associates thru a turnstyle while people with a decade's worth of retail and supervisory experience keep scrapin'

All while doing the work of 3 people while all alone in the store, getting paid less than a liveable wage, covering shifts that you didnt plan for and getting treated like scum by customers while working holidays.

Crazy to think people dont line up around the block for that kinda life.

 Quoting: abbaton 84276043



Ran a dept in a warehouse for several years. The main corporation bought out 3 small local businesses and merged us into one.
Then they rounded out the warehouse staff with temp agency workers and I truly learned how that system snags people and keeps them in a loop.
You go to the temp service, they place you in a warehouse job. You show up, you do the job, you're no issue, you're told you have to make it 90 days without incident and you'll get on.
Day 85ish, they start looking for an excuse to get rid of someone. By day 89, they'll call the agency and say they are done with that person, send a new one. Repeat cycle.

Mostly these are folks who have something on their record, or grew up in a shitshow and have minimal skills, or had a baby in high school. They just wanted a steady job, some insurance, and 2 weeks vacation. The most basic American dream. And over and over and over, corporations would play the 89 day game with people. Not just our place, most warehouses.
Eventually it breaks people and they stop trying.

The old adage of getting your foot in the door and being a good little soldier and working your way up the ladder no longer exists in blue collar corporate america

it's the same with most industries, like retail- instead of promoting a loyal employee who's managed a store for years, they fire him & get someone new- cheaper that way!


a business owner said 'every time you get new employees, it's like starting your business from scratch again.' It's like changing out a great hockey team with a bunch of fresh athletes who play together like a well oiled machine -- and then expecting the fresh new players to be half as good!
