    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

    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.

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

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview

    First there was an online application, then an in person discussion, then a variety of tests on their website, then another in person discussion, a series of background checks, and another in person discussion. I assumed the process to make minimum wage for an additional part time job would take a few days maybe even a week, but the entire process took almost a month!

    Interview

    I applied online. I originally applied for the assistant managers job. I was contacted about nine days later by the store manager that was doing the interviewing in the area. The store manager was a nice guy told me right off the bat that another candidate with 20 years retail experience applied and got the assistant mangers job. He felt bad for me because I just graduated college with a bachelors degree in business and prior experience in retail and offered me the lead sales associates job. He said I should be getting a call from the DM within a week.
