The former employee says that workers in Dollar general stores are not at fault.
In an interview with Whio, former employee general of the dollarLynda Swankspoke about theChain policies, declaring that the problems are increasingly coming, as opposed to partners and managers of individual stores.
"They put their employees much more than they should," Swank said, who worked at Dollar General for four years, in The Outlet.
She added that there is a designated day each week, called "Super Tuesday", where the incoherent prices are supposed to be adjusted. "Nothing is supposed to be done that day before the price changes were made," said Swank. However, endowment policies interfere with the ability of employees to achieve this.
According to Swank, the general dollar stores in which they worked were not allowed to work more than two employees, except "sometimes" on the delivery days. It is generally not Tuesdays, when the price assortment is supposed to occur, which means that there are only two people capable of storing shelves, ringing customers and performing other tasks .

If you receive a decline, Swank has encouraged buyers to stay firm and warned them not to go through a purchase if price differences arise.
"Do it well-if they don't do it properly, don't buy it, continue elsewhere," she said.

Buyers quickly said they had similar experiences in Dollar General Stores, with a speaker saying that they "refuse to go" because of the packed alleys.
Dollar General Employees also added to the discussion. An employee said their store received truck deliveries twice a week, and due to a limited spacing, the boxes are found in the aisles. A separate comment echoes Swank's claims on apparent policy to two employees.
"I work at Dollar General and we are not allowed to hire just stockers with me, so we have only one manager and a cashier," wrote the employee, while another store partner said that managers can only give so many hours, which means that there is simply not enough time to "make a breach in inventory".
