    Typical interview process is 2 step. The regional manager was in the area so interview with them as well as district manager. Thus eliminating a step. General structure of company was discussed. Scheduling was discussed excluding your expectation to 6 days. Structure of delivery schedules and expectations of having trucks processed and stocked.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview went well, asked detailed questions that were very specific to the job. Overall, went well. Seemed like a lot of work for the responsibility, hours, and the pay was not going to be that great. The HR was very friendly and had a lot of great advice even though I didn't get the job. If nothing else a great learning experience.

    Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Smyrna, GA
    Application Details

    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.
