I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Aztec, NM) in Feb 2016

Interview

The hiring process was very unorganized I had to reapply 3 times. To my surprise the interview was not very expensive for such an important position. The total time of my interview was about 15 to 20 minutes when we are told in our training that we should interview assistant managers for at least 30 minutes.

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Little Rock, AR) in Nov 2014
