    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Dollar General in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to several of the surrounding stores in my area. I got a callback about a week or less after applying and was asked to come in for an interview. When I arrived for the interview, the manager brought me into her office and started explaining the basics of the job as if I already had the job. She said she wanted to hire me mainly because I had previous retail experience, and the job was mine. I accepted and was given information on completing some "HR" paperwork online for taxes and such at home. Started at minimum wage, and they give you 25 cents every year.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received call to schedule an interview weeks later.

    Interviewer (Store Manager) complained that I showed up early (because she wanted to smoke a cigarette); I offered to wait and she refused. In twenty minutes, I may have been able to speak a dozen words, which were mostly loudly cut off by SM who rambled about current associates.

    I was told a background check would be submitted (the only disqualifying factor being a felony) and I would be contacted when the results were received. After a week, I called to check in and SM claimed she was still waiting on results. A few days later, I received a copy of the background check and a notice that I had been disqualified from consideration due to a misdemeanor several years prior.
