    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person - interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    I took a test as part of the online application process. The test consisted of classic personality and morality questions in addition to basic business management concepts and scenarios. Human Resources (HR) called a couple days later and scheduled a HR phone interview, which was a very informal exchange of information both ways. I then had in-person interviews with both the District Manager (DM) and the Regional Manager (RM). Both the DM and RM interviews were standard, sit-down, formal conversations. The day after the RM interview I received a new hire packet via email. The drug test was scheduled automatically as part of filling out the new hire packet.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Dollar General in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The manager has no idea what they are doing and just ask random questions from the top of their head. It was very informal and awkward. No seating was even provided at the start of the interview in the tiny office space.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    The process was broken up, poorly managed and (what I found out later) indicative of the company as a whole. Some of the people interviewing me seemed to care and have the company's best interest at heart. However, several of the people showed a sincere lack of dedication and common decency.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Dollar General in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was hired on the spot. She loved my resume and was impressed with my overall professionalism. She showed me around the facility and got to know me a little bit. She was very cooperative when it came to my school schedule, as I told her that I was a student. She told me as long as I passed the drug test I was hired.
