    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Process took four months. They courted me through the process and then they said I was looking for too much money. I told them my salary requirements right from the first meeting. I have no respect for the HR leadership at Dollar General.

    Interview Questions

    • No hard questions. One that stands out was where do you want to be in ten years. I told them Vice President of HR and had a plan on how this could be achieved.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Week 1 - Phone interview with a pleasant HR person and standard questions. This was the most professional of all the interviews I participated in. Week 2, 3 in-person interviews, first with an HR manager who asked very few questions and the second with two direct reports who asked even fewer questions. The lack of questions seemed to me to be an indicator that they were not interested in hiring me, so I was very surprised to be called back for a third time. I interviewed with the head of the department. Even more surprisingly, this person was extremely aggressive and condescending. In my experience, at this stage in the interview process, potential employers seem enthusiastic about your qualifications rather than dismissive. Overall, it was an extremely unprofessional and unpleasant interview process, which to me did not bode well for the company overall. Had they offered me the position I would have refused it.

    Strategic Account Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Interviewed for a position with an outside vendor who works on-site with Dollar General. Had two interviews with vendor company and then met with the client representative (Dollar General). This was one of the worst interviews I've ever had. The Dollar General employee was gruff and extremely rude. Spoke quickly and basically wanted to let me know if I took the job it would be a "dictatorship", I would have to do everything he told me to do with little, if any, input on my part. He wasn't interested in someone with a brain that could bring a fresh eye to the situation, he just wanted someone to carry out his demands. Told me this would be a 24/7 job and asked if when a crisis came along and he was yelling at me to get things done, if I would "cry like a little girl." I maintained my professional demeanor, but this guy had a God complex. I spoke with an employee of Dollar General before going into the interview who told me, "When he calls you in to give you a project, you better ask all your questions right then, because if you come back to him later to ask a question, he'll bite your head off." The office was very comtemporary and the lobby was nice. The receptionist was very polite and helpful. A friend of mine who previously worked there, told me Dollar General was a "sweat shop" and after being there for my interview, I concur.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in April 2009.

    Interview

    My interview with the HR team was very professional and consistent with my expectations. The Divisional VP of Operations for the KY market was the distinct disappointment. He was arrogant and frankly unprofessional. He openly mocked my credentials and all but called me a liar. He insinuated that despite more than 3 decades as a successful retail manager I "might" not be qualified to work for DG. He forgets that the interview process is just as much about ME sizing them up as them sizing me up! No wonder the comments on this site reference the fact that the same mindset prevails even with store associates! A REAL SHAME!!!!
