Dollar General plans to invest approximately $35 million in bonuses for all store, distribution center and private fleet employees.
Eligible employees include those who perform work during a six-week period beginning in mid-March. Details of the bonuses were shared with employees beginning last week.
“Dollar General is proud to have the best team in retail, and the company’s investment in this bonus demonstrates our continued appreciation for all that our employees are doing to serve our customers and communities,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO. “Throughout our organization, we continue to see our mission of serving others on proud display as our employees work diligently to provide our neighbors, friends and communities with the essential products they need at everyday low prices.”
As previously announced, Dollar General plans to hire up to 50,000 new employees by the end of April to support operations.
