    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview

    Went extremely well (which is where they 'get' you), Manager seemed nice, respectful, and serious about work. Asked all of the common questions and made small talk while doing so. She seemed very interested after I had told her I had open availability (my MISTAKE). Now, I don't even know how she had the TIME for that interview! She acted as if she would teach me everything I needed to know that she was very 'on hand' when it came to training.

    Interview

    Did my application on Friday, got a call on Monday to come in on a Tuesday at 2pm.. I met the manager he was pretty nice and cool! He asked me about my availability, my retail experience & he basically told me that I was hired, but the human resources had to review my application and that they would send me my hourly wage based on my experience and that I would get the rest of the hiring packet in my email & if I pass my background check he will give me a call back.. The hiring process basically takes 2-3 weeks

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview

    I interviewed at a store that was established for a position at a store still being put together. Interview was brief and to the point. Interviewer was a sincere and accomplished manager. The interviewer was the manager that I would be working for if hired which was a plus because I got to gauge whether or not we had professional chemistry.

    Interview

    Brought me in for a interview and hired me on the spot. It was pretty straight forward. Easiest interview I think I've ever had. He asked if I was okay with minimum wage and I said yes. I don't know what else to say but glassdoor says I need to have a 50 word minimum. I like pies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Dollar General (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I showed up dressed business casual(-ish) and waited for about 15 minutes for the manager to be ready. Sat me down and asked a few easy, generic interview questions that came from the corporate hiring packet. Then started talking about hours, pay rate, and I knew I had the job. Didn't take long and no stress.
