    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    Went to a job fair and talked to a store manager and the dm, Dm said he would call back in a few days but never did. Was also called by a store manager for an interview. I called after a few days since I hadn't heard anything back. I guess she was just going to leave me hanging. Said the most she MIGHT be able to offer was 9.50 an hr! Most people started at 9 but since I had several years of experience I might be worth .50 more? DM somehow forgot to mention that this was an overnight position! No incentive for working 3rd shift. Spectacular.
