    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ardmore, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar General (Ardmore, OK) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I arrived and my temperature was checked. I then sat in their waiting room for only a short while. The manager interviewing me did an outstanding job making an interview feel like a conversation. I've never had an experience like it. The manager then had another manager actually give me a tour of the facility and describe their process. I liked this part because it showed me exactly what I would be doing if hired.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dayton, OH
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar General (Dayton, OH) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online with Dollar General's career page (side note: they have the least organized career page I've ever seen-- took forever to even find locations close to me). Got a call from two different places two days later. I followed up with both. The first lady pretty much wanted to interview me over the phone and seemed overly eager to hire me. She told me to come in the following Monday with IDs. Sounded desperate, which was a huge red flag.

    Second lady was rude. She put me on hold but did not mute the phone. I could hear her talking to another manager about me. She told me to come in "whenever" the following week and barely said good-bye as she hung up. Also a red flag.

    Fortunately, I got hired elsewhere. This is not how you pre-screen potential employees.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollar General (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I submitted my application online through Indeed.com. I got a call a few days later from human resources. They tell you what to expect from running a DG store such as high employee turnover, working 50-55 hours per week, minimal payroll hours etc. I assume this is to make sure you're OK with the general structure of operations. If you're a good candidate Dale pass your information on to the district manager and mention you should get a call within a few days. I got a call from the district manager within 20 minutes and she asked me to meet her at a store just to talk. She walked me around the store and explained a few things about operations and then offered me the job.
