    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Antioch, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed 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?"   1 Answer

    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.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Longview, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dollar General (Longview, TX) in May 2009.

    Interview

    Interview process is solely based on the experience of the individual store manager. I had more interview experience than the lady interviewing me, so I ran the interview. I told her all the things I knew she would need to know about me and my work experience. There is a 60 question assessment which is designed to test your value/ethics. Then you wait for the phone to ring. Very little, if any training. No safety meetings or store meetings.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked if I had a problem working every holiday of the year, including Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, etc.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. You are offered a job at what they are willing to pay. You work a different schedule every week and a lot of nights. You are required to work every holiday.
