Interviewed at Dollar General
Interview Details – Slow interview process, extremely unprofessional. Worked there for over two years, and it was horrible. All companies constantly cut hours, that part wasn't surprising. However, the way the DM would talk to us was completely unbelievable - I have never been degraded and talked down to in such a way in my entire life. And having a manager that would call me to work even while I was on vacation was completely insane.

Interview Details – I noticed they were missing an employee after going in a few times during the week and asked about the associate and I was told that they were finding a replacement. I then asked where to apply and I did. Then I called to store manager to let her know I was finished and the next time I went in to the store, she finished the hiring process then asked me to fill out some more information on a website. After that, I just had to wait for the background check, then I went in and finished my new hire training and started working on the floor.

Interview Question – What is honesty? Answer Question
I applied online and 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.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Dollar General in February 2014.
Interview Details – Took the assessment testing on a Monday and received a call on Friday to schedule an interview with HR on Monday. Interview went well. She said she would get in touch with the DM to give him my information for the next interview step. She explained if I was hired the training would last 90 days and then after I had completed that I would sit down with the DM and together we would decide if I was ready for my own store. If we felt that I was ready then I would get the next available store in my area.
She explained the pay range and would I accept that if offered. Explained that I would be working anywhere between 45-60 hours per week and was I okay with that. I have had my own business in the past so I am familiar with having to work long hours.
It has been almost a week since I talked with HR rep and still haven't heard from the DM regarding an interview.
Interview Question – Nothing really unexpected. Did ask what would I ask a potential employee about customer service.
