    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Causes of shrink? How to control shrink. Also some P&L questions.   Answer Question
