Negotiation Details – Not negotiable
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Dollar General in October 2013.
Interview Details – Hired on the spot. They seemed to be in a pinch with letting people go. I have a lot of experience doing interviews so I answered all the normal interview questions and I asked a lot of questions involving the company and expectations. I also arrived early to look around the store to find problem areas to give me something to talk about.
Interview Question – Why should we hire you? I think most people try to rattle off some planned response but I think you should do your homework on what that employer is looking for and tailor a response specific to the employer you are interviewing with. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I suggest looking up on Glassdoor.com for all employers you are interviewing so if they do make an offer you know how much wiggle room you have. I did not do the research upfront and didn't think i would have to negotiate that day so I had no idea what the pay range was.

I applied online - interviewed at Dollar General in September 2013.
Interview Details –
I had my initial interview by phone w/ HR. She was very nice and informative. It was scheduled to be a half hour interview, but lasted an hour and a half. I had a lot of questions and it was obvious she wanted me to understand a little about the business before sending my name to the DM.
She was very honest that the job is tough and may not pay as well as some others, and stressed that there is much room for advancement, and the next level paid very well. She told me if I wasn't contacted in 48 hours to schedule my interview w/ the DM to get in touch w/ her.
It was closer to 60 hours later when the DM called. I missed it, but called her back the next morning. Unfortunately there was some miscommunication, and the position I interviewed for was filled a cpl weeks ago. She hinted at an assistant manager position, but the pay is too low. She stressed that she would like to go ahead w/ the interview anyway as she may have another store manager position opening in a couple of months.
I have that interview in 2 days.
