I work at Dollar General – there is a simple reason customers are abandoning our store – and I agree with them
25th April 2022

A VIRAL video allegedly shows why customers are abandoning Dollar General as shoppers rip the corporation claiming understaffing and insufficient pay as the cause.

The TikTok video, which has amassed nearly 40,000 views, shows an alleged Georiga Dollar General location's aisles flooded with stacked crates of inventory.



“This is the Dollar General by my house, and there’s freight everywhere on the sales floor,” the TikToker explains in the video.

"You can’t even shop!” he adds.

People in the comment section agreed with the content creator and proceeded to rip Dollar General, claiming understaffing and low pay.

"They expect the one employee to do everything," one person wrote.

A second patron said: "@dollargenreal hire an overnight crew to stock and recover your stores. This is beyond embarrassing that every store looks like this or worse."

Another former Dollar General customer claims every store she's visited in the last six months has looked the same.

"Every DG I’ve been to in the last 6 months has been this way. I’ve stopped going," the TikToker wrote.

"I’m in Georgia too. You are absolutely correct and then the shelves are empty," another chimed in.

However, others claim that the stores are suffering from understaffing and insufficient pay.

“Impossible to put away stock and wait on customers and check in vendors when you are the only employee!!” one person said.

Another wrote: "They need to raise employees wages and treat them right! Then it would be ok!"

"They simply don't pay enough for [t]he people to care," a third viewer commented.

A commenter who claimed to have worked for Dollar General over 10 years ago claimed the company expects employees to unload a certain number of crates while working the register.

"I worked at DG over 10 years ago & it was bad then. Expected to unload certain # of those while on register," the person alleged.
