    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Dollar General.

    Interview Details

    Went to a job fair and talked to a store manager and the dm, Dm said he would call back in a few days but never did. Was also called by a store manager for an interview. I called after a few days since I hadn't heard anything back. I guess she was just going to leave me hanging. Said the most she MIGHT be able to offer was 9.50 an hr! Most people started at 9 but since I had several years of experience I might be worth .50 more? DM somehow forgot to mention that this was an overnight position! No incentive for working 3rd shift. Spectacular.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Dollar General in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The manager called me to come in for an interview a few days after I completed an online application. The interview was very pleasant and we talked about my work history briefly, but mostly about the store, his own goals within the corporation and why his store was one of the highest ranked in the area. After the sit-down interview, I was given a tour of the store which was interrupted repeatedly by employees (all new) needing help.

    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.
