I will say I've finally found another job! You don't know how hard it is to find someone to hire you when your first job was Dollar General and you stayed with them for 6 years. I don't know if their reputation is just that bad. But someone finally said "we hire a lot of ex-DG employees. I say all of this because I've been looking for another job for almost 8 months. ( I will continue the story in comments).

Anonymous Employee in Anniston, AL
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Anniston, AL) in Dec 2016
Everything went smoothly and all of my questions were answered perfectly they were extremely nice and very understanding that at that time I could not come in on some days due to doctors appointments or days I would be running a little behind due to the doctor appointments running over the scheduled time
- Have you ever worked with the public
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pryor, OK
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Pryor, OK) in Jun 2016
I got called multiple times, and ultimately had two interviews. (There were both supposed to be with the manager, but the manager didn't show up on the day I was scheduled to have it.) On the second interview, with the actual manager, she told me that they liked me and that I would hear back within a week and to call if I didn't. I didn't hear back, and when I called another assistant manager (not the one I had the first interview with) had no clue what I was talking about. I guess I didn't get the job, even though they wasted over two weeks of my time.
- They asked about availability and previous experience.

I applied online. I interviewed at Dollar General (Dalhart, TX) in May 2015

Anonymous Employee in Marion, IN
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Marion, IN) in Feb 2015
It was somewhat haphazard. The first time I came in for an interview, I was told that the District Manager would be late. He then could not attend, and I had to reschedule. The second time, he was again late but at least this time I was permitted to wait until he arrived, almost an hour after my own timely arrival. The interview itself was a bit random, as their computer system was down and they couldn't access my application. Luckily, they knew that I was supposed to be there, so this was only a minor impediment. It contributed to a longer interview than I am accustomed to, as they required me to re-answer many questions I had answered on the application. This was not a problem, and I feel I actually got to know them better this way.
