To support growth and fill job vacancies, Dollar General has reported that it will hire 10,000 new employees in May across its store and distribution network. The retailer will hold career fairs to recruit candidates throughout the month, it stated, in the 40 states that the network serves.
“Dollar General is seeking to hire people with the attitude, aptitude and ambition to build a career with us and support our mission of serving others,” said Rick Dreiling, Dollar General’s chairman and CEO. “With growth and development opportunities, industry-recognized training programs and a culture of helping our employees grow and develop their skills, this national hiring initiative is a great opportunity for people to join the Dollar General team and to grow with us as we continue to strengthen and expand our business across America.”
On Saturday, May 18, Dollar General will host a national hiring fair at approximately 170 locations for available store positions. Hiring fairs at the company’s distribution centers will run throughout the month, the company related.
Dollar General noted that it will participate in Florida Paychecks for Patriots hiring events. Military veterans and their families can take part in the events held on Friday, May 10 at 10 Florida Regional Workforce Board Centers throughout the state.
