Dollar General / scamed and cheated!

1 TN, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Female Managers have filed a Discrimination lawsuit against Dollar General because KKR & Dollar General Corp pay female manager less than male managers for the exact same work and job. Amazing how this day and age companies are allowed to engage is such discriminatory behavior while individuals take it in the chin. Oh thats rights, individuals can't afford to pursue their legal remedies because attorneys demand such outrageous fee's that only big business can afford.

No wonder individual rights are ignored in the courts.

    I am a female manager and I feel that you get paid according to your job performance. If you feel you are not making what a male manager is, it is probably because you are to busy finding a easy way out(such as a law suit) instead of doing you job

    The last several managers at our local Dollar General were fired. I honestly believe they don't like their managers to make too much money. The managers always seem to lose out on their bonuses due to some ridiculous reason. I was an assistant manager who actually got fired AFTER I quit. Actually, leaving Dollar General has improved my health and my attitude.

    I honestly believe people should boycott Dollar General because of the horrible way they treat their employees. Ethics should mean more than saving a few pennies.

    First of all, I am a woman. Secondly, I was fired AFTER I quit. And thirdly, I am smart enough to use punctuation properly.

    Learn to spell, capitalize, punctuate, and use proper English. THEN you can tell me how dumb I am.

    Mickey, as rude as Jason is it is very childish of you to point out someone's spelling, grammar mistakes. Like he said in another post so what. This is the internet, not English class. For you to mention his spelling mistakes and grammar mistakes is very immature of you. Not everyone lives in an English speaking country, and even if they do not everyone speaks it well because it is not their first language. Seriously both of you need to grow up. Also perpahs punctuation is different from where you live, because aside from a few mistakes I don't see much problem with it. I think you are just being childish as him by bringing that in this complaint when it has nothing to do with the complaint. Learn to stay on topic. Or do you two have ADHD.

    I work for Dollar General and have so for 6 years now. I have met many people in this small community that I grew up in. Never really knew them at all. Have come to know them all as a community proud people who consider this store their local mall. Many people young and older have worked in this store over the past years. Many things have changed over the years - some for the better. I, being older, became settled and afraid to change jobs and always held optimism towards my job, position and company. Over the past 16 months I have been shocked, disappointed and thoroughly disgusted to see how faithful and hard-working employees have been discarded and treated with about as much respect as the cardboard from last week's truck. I have worked diligently and when I finally stood up for my rights and others I have found myself railroaded and blackballed. I reported my concerns to the corporate office concerning our district manager and his refusal to handle the situation. Now my days are numbered as an employee as I feel the mounted pressure daily. It's very difficult to smile, be friendly and do my daily chores knowing the company I work for was built on BLOOD, SWEAT. TEARS AND TOTAL DISRESPECT FOR HONEST, HARDWORKING DECENT PEOPLE. I pray to God every night to help me out of this horrible situation. KARMA IS A REAL ### LADIES AND GENTLEMEN [AND I USE THAT TERM VERY LOOSELY].

    I know where all of you are coming from. I was a store manager from August 2007 ubtill May 5, 2010. I was terminated for donating pennied items to local non profit organizations, I was told it was a company policy. I know that for a fact that isnt true. I also I have a copy of an email sent from the corporate office from John Rodgers stateing to remove from the floor and either doanate it to a non profit organization or destroy it, so I donated as I did time and time again. We had just gotten camaras in January, so we gathered up the items as we did in the past and called our local Childrens home and Womans Aid and crisis to pick up the items. We go a new DM the first of April and by April 27th he had already fired one assitant manager, lead clerk, and suspened me untill they came to a desision on weather I was going to be terminated or not. He told me that he would call me that Friday with a desision, well Friday came and went, so I tried to get ahold of the RM finally on May 5, 2010 he called me that afternoon and told me that they came to the desison to terminate my postion, they did this over the phone reall professional. In the mean time the DM was demonted back down to a store manager.
    I loved my job I had never been written up, my store was at model store, never behind on planograms, and my store finally reached a million dollars in sales in April 2008, all my store review was always in the high 90"s. This company has some real issues.
    I filed for unemployement, and waited on the deputy desision and it was in my favor I gave them a copy of the email and store employee hand book, but was funny was the told the unemployment office I left due to personel reason, I didnt leave I was terminated or I would still be there.
