Dollar General, 2022
According to the November 23 article "Ex-Dollar General Employee Gives New Warning to Shoppers", former Dollar General employee Lynda Swank gave her opinion on the company's policies in an interview with WHIO.
She stated that the problems with the chain's policies originate from higher-ups, as opposed to individual store associates and managers.
"They put their employees through way more than they should," Swank, who worked at Dollar General for four years, told the outlet.
She added that there is a designated day each week, called "Super Tuesday," where inconsistent prices are supposed to be adjusted. "Nothing is supposed to be done on that day until after price changes are done," Swank said. However, staffing policies interfere with employees' ability to accomplish this.
