Complaint / review text:
I am an employee of DG. The managers and district manager have lied to me from the beginning. I was hired for full time, yet I have never received more than 20 hours a week. When I asked about it, I was told they don't hire Full Time employees. The DM promised she would get me more hours at another store, but it has been a month and it hasn't happened. The schedule is never done before Friday night for the following day. I asked my store manager on Friday night at 7 pm when I was scheduled next and she said the schedule was not finished and she would text me to let me know. I received a text from her at 1:40 pm on Saturday telling me to be at work at 3:00 pm. (1 hour and 20 minutes notice). I live 30 minutes away and I was an hour away when I received the text.
I rushed home and made it to work at 2:59 pm, only to find out that I was scheduled at 3:30 and had to wait 30 minutes before I clocked in. I was also told by the assistant manager that the schedule was completed on Friday night and when she told the store manager that she was going to call me, she was told not to call me, that she would take care of it herself. I am currently looking for employment elsewhere, and they will not receive advance notice from me when I leave there.
They have absolutely no respect for their employees or customers. A customer asked for something that we had in the stockroom and was told that we were out of it. 5 minutes after he left the store, the product was brought out to the floor and the manager said he did not like the customer, so he was not going to get the product out for him. I use to shop DG a lot, but I will no longer shop in their stores.
