    Interview Details

    One interview in the manager's office the day after I turned in my application... I was basically a formality. Started working the next week. Easy as can be. I think he was just seeing if I had a good personality for a customer service environment.

    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Dollar General in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call from an HR manager. After completing a phone screen with the HR manager my information was forwarded to a district manager. I was set up last minute to interview with two district managers at one of their retail locations. Interview mainly consisted of my relevant work experience. They provided feedback on experience and also had follow-up questions as I talked. They asked very few outright questions of me except what my experience was with recruitment, development, coaching, and terminations. At the conclusion of the interview I was offered the position on the spot to work with either district manager. Both district managers seemed very eager to work with me and appeared to both be a good support staff for store management.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Annual compensation rates are set based on store location and volume. DM's don't have power to offer more based on experience. I declined the offer due to the low annual compensation.

    Piece of cake. Store manager was super laid back. She asked me a few simple questions, then proceeded to ask when I could begin. I'm sure this process will depend on the manager however. Some may be tougher than others.
