Dollar General — Rude customer service Store#14550

My daughter and I went to the store #14550 on 2/21/20. Seeing that there wasnt a cart available to use, I took a 24pk of bottled water to the front to see if I could leave it there while I did more shopping. I started to ask a woman who was emptying black totes, if I could leave it there on a checkout counter that wasnt being used, and she interupted me saying loudly "Im not working right now"! That flew all over me! I said fine, I'm leaving this here even if its not ok, and bought 1 more item (I had planned to buy more things but I was mad and wanted to leave), and told my daughter so that the employee could rude to speak to people and if she isnt working today, why would she even be in the store! The customer in line ahead of me gave me her cart so I wouldnt have to hold the heavy water bottles, and said she would be my customer service. I wanted to tell that employee, that right there is the reason you dont get paid $15 an hour! Then shes blocking my way as I try to leave with another stack of totes, loading shelves at the checkout! I will not be back to that store ever again. I dont usually get that steamed, but this really got to me! I am kicking myself for not getting her name. I work for the state and I've never talked to anyone who walked into my office like that!

    Maybe she was in the store on her day off because she was shopping and didn't want to be bothered with entitled people asking her stupid questions. I'm sure they won't miss you at that store.

Dollar General — The manager Tomeka

My name is tania wilson and I was hired by tomeka due to the fact if I wrote a letter against the assistant manager that she does not like I would get her assistant manager position well that is not how it happen I was gured as a sales associate lead and my 1st day of work was 01/20/2020 my pay was 9.00 which I was told she would change but didn't my last day of work was the 31st at 730pm I was not played for that last week I was being untrained, she is very rude and disrespectful towards customers I was mislead and lied to all I want is my unclaimed wages before I pursue to legal matters

    You can not sue for unclaimed wages since the wages were never officially appropriated to you. You must get it in writing to be official, however I'm sure all your documents show that you were ever only officially appropriated to receive $9.00/hr.

Dollar General — service

I shop at dollar general on average three times a week. (not anymore) I go into the store where there is a line of about 30 customers waiting at one register and I asked the man if they could open another register and he responded with - no one here to run the other register. Left and went to another store (dollar tree) and had no problem getting waited on.. The next day on 02/16/2020 went back to the store and it was the same as the previous day. After reading all the complaints about you business I am surprised that you are still in business. I know now nothing will be done about any complaints therefore I will no longer shop at dollar general. You should be ashamed of yourselves to allow this to go on.

    omitesre Feb 17, 2020

    It is funny how there are 30 people in line an you are the only one that is too impatient to wait. You say you won't be back. Well you won't be missed. I just feel sorry for the employees at Dollar Tree who had to deal with you. The reason they are still in business is the other 29 people are adult enough to wait their turn without complaining. Out of 30 people waiting in line you are the only one causing a scene. If anyone should be ashamed it should be YOU.

    @Countrymom2020 "I'm sure...".

    You were there? Methinks not. We don't have mean words towards anyone but truthful words. The fact that there are 29 other people in line and NO help obviously from management or anyone should clue you into the reality of being a worker in these terribly understaffed stores. No one cares about the workers!

    Being impatient is one thing, taking it out on the apparent ONLY worker is inexcusable. They are working which is more than I can say about most of the BLM people.

    Same thing happens at Dollar Tree stores, and any of these small format stores. Really no one should shop at any of these stores. If you want to talk about economic inequality these small format stores aka dollar stores are the biggest offenders. These stores profit margins are 70 percent or higher yet they pay less then 10 percent in wages, and the prices aren't that low. Walmart is a much less offender of economic inequality then these small format stores.

Dollar General — advertising products and not ever carrying them

This company has a bad problem with not carring items advertised in a circular. For instance.. there trac-phones. Since the circular came out I went to 3 stores nearest to me, to purchase any 1 of the 2 advertised phones for $20.00. Each store said the same. They never got those 2 phones in. I ask.. then why is this circular in your store then? They don't have answers. You can't even order this online. To add to the bad advertising, I send my compliant through Dollar General website, and guess what??? Not a peep from them.

advertising products and not ever carrying them

    The advertisement is put out by Tracfone, and Dollar General is just the middle man. Tracfone likely only stock these items in wealthy community stores, like Miami, Los Angeles, New York, etc. Your problem is with Tracfone. It doesn't surprise the store associates since it's not Dollar General that not sending the phones to those stores.

Dollar General — manager assistant manager if that's what you call her

I have lived in Mounds View my entire life and I have never been so disgusted with a store in my life. You have three rude employees there. Cheryl, Jessica- NOT JESSIE! She's about the only one without any disrespect to the customers and other staff. Then you have aJessica the curly haired demon that spreads rumors about other employees at other stores in the mall. She's a classless [censored] and can't understand for the life of how she still has a job. Same with the one that has no teeth. Her name is Connie and she has got to be one of the most miserable, disrespectful women, if you can call her that, I've ever met. These are the people you let represent your store? I've personally witnessed her say [censored] among other disgusting words in front of customers. I happened to be in the store some three years ago when she threw her keys and said [censored] this place, I'm out of here! Mind you, she put on this show in front of about five customers. My family and myself used to shop there on a regular basis. Not anymore. Between how disgusting the store is and that Connie andJessica and how they treat customers and other employees is almost to much to believe it's been allowed to go on so long. Then there is that Meth head that you call a manager that does nothing but allow a hostile work environment to go on. The way that toothless gorilla Connie and that short Medusa looking Troll with the nasty curly hair that she never washes its a wonder the other employees stick around there to be abused by all three of those poor excuse for a manager and Assistant manager who should have NEVER been hired back for saying [censored] this place and throwing her keys and storming out in front of me and other customers. The only reason I still give that store any business is because of a gal named Jessie who is the most sweetest and helpful employee you've ever had. What's really sick about the whole thing is she has a disabled husband and Connie and that little troll Jessica treat her like garbage. Go ask other places like people that work at the liquor store and Cost Cutters and the Tobacco shop. I know for a fact that Jessie has given four years of her life to that dump and can't figure it out. She's such a sweet women and treat all us customers with so much respect and is so helpful. I know for a fact Jessie would give her a ride home for almost a year and not once did she ever offer her a dime for gas money of even thank her and Jessie finally had more then she could take and stopped giver her rides. Her own husband won't hardly pick her up. And the new regional manager you hired is no better then Connie, Cheryl or the little troll Jessica. I made up my mind tonight and will NEVER spend another Penney at that store until all three of those so called employees are gone. Good luck turning that store around because it is by far the biggest dump out of every store in that mall. That Connie threw her keys and quit and has the most foul mouth and Cheryl and Jessica are right behind them. Poor little Jessie because she gets so hard. I can tell she's at her braking point and your so called regional manager isn't much better. All she cares about is her own paycheck. Dollar General was once a decent store but not anymore. It's a total disgrace and getting worse. I hope for the sake that store you fire Starting with toothless, foul mouthed Connie. Then that gossiping liar troll Jessica and lastly, Cheryl. I can't understand for the life of me why little sweet Jessie sticks around there to be abused by the back stabbers.

Dollar General — manager

You should fire the Manager, Lori, at the Dollar General in Merrill, Wisconsin. I went to Dollar General on Valentine's Day [protected]) to get all the goodies and cards for my family. Upon walking into the store and taking a cart, the lady who is the Manager, Lori, called someone on the phone and proceeded to ream that employee out, extremely loud for a very long time. The manager was talking so loud, you could hear her entire (25 min) conversation throughout the entire store. She proceeded to holler and chew the employee out, stomping around the store pulling stickers off of the shelves, even told the employee that he/she had no business posting stickers on the shelves, that this is her store to post the stickers, not the employee's. This employee did not do as instructed and that next time she better call the manager because that is what everyone else does and not to make any decisions. Obviously by the Manager's response, the employee must have made a derrogatory question (i.e., why are you being such a [censored]?) to which the Manager replied (now I'm about 5 feet away from the registers where the Manager is standing) that she can be a [censored] because she's the manager and that she is going to continue to be a [censored] if the employee doesn't do as instructed or they will be written up. I really considered walking out and leaving all the stuff I had in my cart. I was there for around 30 mins at the very least and that is all I heard the entire time I was in the store, until just before I left. The Manager hung up while the other employee was checking me out. My entire shopping trip was so uncomfortable and horrible that I'm not sure if I will return to the store. I will take my business to Dollar Tree or Family Dollar and not have the entire shopping trip be so stressful and horrible. I have owned my own retail store in Merrill for over 30 years, and never NEVER has business ever been conducted in such an extremely unprofessional manner. The actions of the manager directly reflect on the store and she should have spoken to the employee privately. Also, in my opinion this employee would definitely have cause to bring legal action against this company for the actual ABUSE and HARASSMENT. It is a sad state of affairs if Corporate refuses to do something about it. This is a very small town and most people know each other and certainly know the check out people. From the content of the 1-sided conversation that I witnessed, I know exactly who this employee was. The Manager did not make any attempt to control her words or herself. She was extremely mad which was very obvious from her body language alone, stomping around the store like a crazy person. The majority of the store is covered with boxes and new supplies standing in the aisles, waiting to be unpacked and put away. Maybe the manager could have better spent her 1/2 hour unpacking and stocking instead of driving out customers by her vile and WHITE TRASH ATTITUDE and ACTIONS.
