How can a person can find out the answer to, “Is Dollar General hiring in my area right now or in the future? First and foremost, you should visit your local Dollar General store and inquire within before even applying online. The reason is simple; you get a chance to meet the staff there, hopefully someone in management, and it can possibly build a bridge throughout your employment application process.
Sometimes, you will see an advertised Dollar General career fair in the news. However, these events are only held when a new store is opening in a certain area. This means you have a much better chance of finding a job opening if you visit the store itself or even if you go online to the official Dollar General career site.
Job search engines are a great resource to find out if Dollar General is hiring people in a particular area. With these types of websites, you can create your free profile and once you upload it, the companies match the available positions in your area for you. Alternately, you can also type in “Dollar General hiring” in the search box and see the available jobs for that or any other particular company.
As a matter of fact, it’s a good idea to use a job search engine and apply to 3-5 different companies at the same time to improve your chances of getting a call back for the interview process. Chances are, all companies will not be interested but you may get an interview with one or two of them. Finding a job is a numbers game; the more you put your name out there, the better chance you will have to get hired. Remember to follow up on each and every job application you put forth on these job search sites. Today, using these search engines is the absolute quickest way to connect quality people like yourself with the right company.
By visiting the store when Dollar General is hiring you will set yourself apart from the rest of the job applicants. If you were a hiring manager, wouldn’t you love to meet the person who was applying before you even call them back for an interview? When you apply online, all you are is a name and there is no face attached. This is the trend these days for many companies; they accept applications online and they call back people who they think are possible candidates for an interview without ever getting to meet them before hand. By visiting the store or stores in person you can ask a real live person, “Is Dollar General hiring at this store?”
