sorry i tried to respond to the tennessean and couldnt get in there to post but after reading what was said, dollar general is closing 400 stores. and one of them is mine, i have been there a little over 6 months as a cashier and grunt, i work hard and never called in sick in that time, not only that i have filled in for just about all my co-workers at one time or another and i feel that its a bunch of crap to give a manager and assistant manager "store closing bonuses on percentage of sales" when the manager has been there a little over 3 months and the ass.mgr abt 4 months. its also the personality of the cashiers that help with continual customers that also keep the customers coming into that store, i think we (most of us) deserve some sort of bonus too, not just a kick out the door on the last day. this just goes to show you how dollar general treats their hard working and dedicated employees.

to let everyone know as a asst. manager i should know they promise bonus to all managers but while the third key and asst bust their butts to make it happen the only one that gets it is the SM. lower key holders get nothing but a pat on the back from the SM for getting them more money
