    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollar General (Gallatin, TN) in September 2017.

    The hiring process was just a simple application that needed to be filled out online.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied to position and was contacted the following week to set up a phone interview with reporting managers. Within fifteen minutes of phone interview I was sent an email to schedule a face-to-face interview, which consisted of two panel interviews that lasted about thirty minutes each.

    Regional Loss Prevention Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very good, with 3-in person interviews and 2 phone interviews. The most impressive part of the process is that all of the interviews were more of a discussion in which I got to learn about Dollar General and they got to know about me. This is so much more productive than "gotcha" type interviews where someone can say all the right things after rehearsing. This process allowed the interviewee to share their strengths and experiences, while also allowing the hiring Manager/s to really engage the candidate and learn about their leadership approach. One of the most impressive interview processes I've ever experienced. Each of the different interviewers were well-informed about the position I was interviewing for and the company. This approach demonstrated to me that they place value on the right fit for the right position.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, it was really more open ended, allowing for dialogue between the candidate and Dollar General. I suggest doing your homework and learning about the company. Additionally I would recommend asking questions about the company and the position, as it will help you better understand the role you will play if hired.   Answer Question
