    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar General (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    I've never been on an interview where the interviewer did nothing but badmouth the company he works for the whole time. But at least he was honest, right? He told me what a terribly managed company Dollar General is. He told me one store manager was robbed at gunpoint and they tied her up in the bathroom. He said most managers work six days a week and work at least 10 hour days because you have no help. He said the turnover rate is extremely high you may have someone work three days and then quit on you! He told me that they have an incredible amount of theft and there's not really anything you can do about it. They have a quarterly bonus based on shrink but that is pretty much impossible to get since the theft is so high! This company is about as bare bones as you can get. This idiot did not even call me back to offer me the job. He should have been on his hands and knees begging me to work there since I was so overqualified for the job, but of course I would have told him Hell No!! Not worth the salary for all of the headaches and to have your personal safety put at risk!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Very brief. First there was a test, then a phone interview, then a local interview then another local interview. Walked around the store to review the processes and ask questions. Then met at Starbucks to meet with the RVP who just asked If I had any questions and if I wanted a coffee. Then said someone will call you.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General in September 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call from recruiter about job and told me how to reply. Applied and waited for a call saying they wanted to move forward. Had a couple phone calls with lower level people in hiring who were really only wanting to know if I had experience hiring or firing. Then I spoke to the next level person who asked if I had fired/hired anyone and told me more about the company...pay benefits, stores etc. He said he would tell the DM about me and wait for him to call. The DM called and we had a good convo about my background, again asked if I had fired/hired anyone. He said he would love to meet in person for an interview and we set up a time. I met him at a local store, he was really late and no one knew I was supposed to be there. He eventually showed and we sat down for five minutes so he could tell me that this wasn’t an actual interview and that he just wanted to meet in person and again asked if I had hired/fired anyone before. That was it and he said he thought I would be a good co manager and would give me a call about that. Never heard back
