    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dollar General (Nashville, TN) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was very brief. I filled out the application online, then called a day later. We set up an appointment for an interview and the interview lasted around 2 hours. It was just me and the store manager talking about ethics and morals, and the code on "serving people". If you want to impress at your interview, mention "serving people" or always helping people out. That is the motto for DG.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Process took four months. They courted me through the process and then they said I was looking for too much money. I told them my salary requirements right from the first meeting. I have no respect for the HR leadership at Dollar General.

    Interview Questions

    • No hard questions. One that stands out was where do you want to be in ten years. I told them Vice President of HR and had a plan on how this could be achieved.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dollar General (Antioch, TN) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Very laid back interview. Fresh out of college with no management experience, however, the manager was in dire need of assistant managers to fill the spot. Nothing difficult, she just asked me if I was willing to work hard and help. Granted the position is only offering me $9/hr I'm not going to complain for the experience I can gain in management and take farther. Other than that it was just a lot of small talk and random chatting. Very easy.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. The only thing the store manager really asked me was "How have you dealt with a difficult customer in the past?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Only offered $9 but to just start out in management I'm not going to complain. It just gives me the opportunity to gain experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Week 1 - Phone interview with a pleasant HR person and standard questions. This was the most professional of all the interviews I participated in. Week 2, 3 in-person interviews, first with an HR manager who asked very few questions and the second with two direct reports who asked even fewer questions. The lack of questions seemed to me to be an indicator that they were not interested in hiring me, so I was very surprised to be called back for a third time. I interviewed with the head of the department. Even more surprisingly, this person was extremely aggressive and condescending. In my experience, at this stage in the interview process, potential employers seem enthusiastic about your qualifications rather than dismissive. Overall, it was an extremely unprofessional and unpleasant interview process, which to me did not bode well for the company overall. Had they offered me the position I would have refused it.
