    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Dollar General (Landover, MD) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Did online app. Was called for interview, the day of interview I show up and the manager forgot about it wanted to reschedule but he did talk to me briefly while he was working. So we reschedule and guess what, the manager is not available to give me the interview as he is busy and I completely understand as this is not my first rodeo in retail. So I finally have a interview with manager and the DM . Everything goes well. Recieved my packet in email to do on boarding and drug screen and background check on a Wednesday, the following Monday I'm all set for Ready to work status. Today is Tuesday aND I haven't recieved a call with a start date.HR say management may have not seen the status change once the do I will get a call.

    Negotiation

    Negotiations was great. I would say I ask for one amount and was offered another amount . Now I'm feeling like it would not be enough budget to cover others but my work speaks for itself.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Houston, TX) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke with Corporate recruiter, which was the most in-depth interview of the process. After that, it was with the Regional Director. The interview with the Regional was pretty laid back, he made me feel very comfortable, so things just flowed well from there. At the end of the interview, the job was mine if I wanted it. I did tell them I would get back to them, as I had another interview lined up, but ultimately came back to accept the offer from Dollar General. Overall, I felt the interview process was very thorough.
