    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milner, GA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollar General (Milner, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through their website. Got an interview. Store manager didn't ask all required questions because I was obviously qualified =). Offered 9.50/hr. I said I would think about it. Called later the same day and declined offer. Saw that I could get paid more money as a "Fruit Picker II" LOL. 9.50/hr is not negotiable. I tried to negotiate a sign-on bonus, vacation time, yearly bonus, over-time, anything, but the store manager has no power over the pay. The district manager has all the say. There are two assistant managers at this location. If they only had one, then the pay would improve dramatically. Store manager and above get a bonus and are salaried. THE END LMAO what a joke!

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult is getting offered 9.50/hr with no overtime, no this, no that,......   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    9.50/hr with no overtime, cannot negotiate vacation, yearly bonus, sign-on bonus etc... is unacceptable. This must be a job for someone just out of school or something. I never made under 12.50/hr even after graduating school.

    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.
