    I applied online – interviewed at Dollar General (Arlington, TX).

    Interview

    Well, it is hard to explain because he asked some basic questions like availability and experience you have. Don't talk too much or little but be someone they want. Also, don't talk about stealing because they have trust issues and experiences with previous employers stealing.

    Negotiation

    Ask about your wage before you take the offer.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dollar General (Smyrna, GA).

    Interview

    I applied for a job at Dollar General after noticing an ad saying they were hiring. I gave the manager my application and she called me the next day, I went for the interview and was told to take the training program on the computer. At first she didn't say I was hired and so I was told to take a drug test and then called and told I was hired. She said to wait for a call to set up my hours and told me "Welcome to the Dollar General Family". On Monday I was out getting medicine for my son in law, and the new manager called, they were changing stores cause a new one had opened. So he asked me for my full name, I gave it to him. Then he said "Oh your that cute young white chick that comes in here, Right? I was like no, and he said real quickly, "Oh let me call you back" and he never did. I waited a couple of days and when I called again, my information had been completely lost.

    I don't think that they are very professional, and he was only looking for young cute females. The first manger was a bit aloof but I chalked it up to her being rushed to the new store.

After the sit-down interview, I was given a tour of the store which was interrupted repeatedly by employees (all new) needing help.
