Distribution Center employees are responsible for receiving, warehousing, and shipping the products you see in our stores every day. The Distribution Centers accept hourly applications locally, which are clerical and material handling positions.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar General (Goodlettsville, TN) in May 2019.


    Three rounds of interviews (HR Screen, Phone Interview, On-site)
    Total process was very efficient and positive.
    Advice would be to contact HR directly via email or phone and not rely on job application submitted through website or third-Party site.
