Dollar General expects to create 10,000 new jobs in 2017
Feb '17
US retailer Dollar General has planned 1,000 new store openings in 2017, in addition to which it will also set up two distribution centres, all of which are expected to create 10,000 new jobs in the current year. The addition of these jobs will increase the strength of its workforce by around 9 per cent, and will be the highest intake in its 78 year history.

Dollar General plans to use its robust training programs to support the company's commitment to one of its operating priorities of investing in employees as a competitive advantage.

The company will invest more than 1.5 million training hours in employees in 2017, to promote education and development throughout the year.

"Dollar General looks forward to welcoming new employees who want to grow with us, as we expand throughout the states we serve," Todd Vasos, Dollar General's chief executive officer said. “Since joining Dollar General in 2008, I have had the privilege to see the company grow from around 72,000 employees, to more than 130,000 anticipated employees by end of the fiscal 2017.
