Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dollar General (Longview, TX) in Nov 2018

Interview

Brief and lackadaisical and it seemed like the managerwas just trying to get somebody in the position as quick as possible. Seems like a revolving door of employees. Dollar general puts more effort on getting that bottom dollar rather than keeping their employees. They do a background check for all positions but a drug test is only given to the store manager position, assistant manager and below are not drug tested
