The Family Dollar Application Process

Before you can apply for a job with Dollar General, you will need to create an account on their hiring website. Creating an account is simple, and requires only your name, email address, password, and two security questions. It should take you no more than a couple minutes to create your account and get on with the application.

At this point, you will have the option to upload your resume. If you have one, you should definitely take advantage of this feature. Family Dollar will read your resume, and fill in many of the application fields for you. If you don't have a resume prepared, that's ok -- you can manually enter everything.

You will now be presented with a page that's designed to collect your personal information. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, birthday, social security number, schedule availability, work experience, references, and education. You can reduce the time you'll need to spend on the application if you prepare all of this information before you start.


Following the core application process, you will be required to take an assessment. The assessment is a series of questions designed to help Family Dollar learn more about you and determine whether you would make a good fit for their team.

The assessment is very long (over 100 questions), but it's important to remain as focused as you can and read each question very carefully. To give you an idea of what to expect from the assessment, here are a few example questions:

"Low pay can cause honest people to steal."

"You are never in a bad mood."

"You are generally free from worry about possible misfortunes."

There are two possible answers for each question: agree or disagree. If you aren't sure how to answer a question, take a moment to think about why they're asking it. What are they trying to learn about you through that particular question?

Background check

All employment offers made by Family Dollar are contingent on passing a background check. By submitting the application, you are giving them permission to perform the background check.

Drug test

By submitting your application, you are consenting to a pre-employment drug test. Getting a job is contingent upon passing this test.
