    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dollar General (Saint Albans, WV) in August 2017.

    I was called to a store that I did not apply for, and went in the store, had to go find the manager in one of the aisles. We, then went into an office where trash was all over the floor. He was very nice and 5 days into the company. He told me that DG would not come close to what I was being paid to just manage one department.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me about job experience, receiving, merchandising, and pretty much told me that the store runs on a dime. No coverage and a lot of call-offs due to no accountability.   1 Answer

    Warehouse Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dollar General (Marianna, FL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was a seamless process although it was a job fair. The staff worked fast and efficiently. I don't think anyone waited longer than forty or so minutes. After filling out a standard application, each individual was interviewed in a one on one situation. Then, at least in my case, I was taken on a short tour of the warehouse to see how the process worked. My interviewer made sure I understood the conditions under which I would be working.
