As the heightened demand for household essentials offered by Dollar General, a US-based variety store company, continues across the country amid Covid-19 concerns, the company plans to nearly double its normal hiring rate and add up to 50,000 employees by the end of April as it continues to diligently work to support customers’ needs.
 
“We are proud to serve as one of America’s essential retailers, and we believe our customers are relying on us now more than ever to provide an affordable, convenient retail option,” Kathy Reardon, Dollar General’s senior vice president and chief people officer, said in a press release. 
 
“The Dollar General family continues to do its part in helping our customers and neighbours during these unprecedented times. We invite individuals looking to start or grow a career, as well as for those whose job may be temporarily impacted by Covid-19, to apply for opportunities to help further our mission of Serving Others.”
 
Dollar General currently operates more than 16,300 stores in 45 states, and approximately 75 percent of the American population is within five miles of a Dollar General. The company also operates 17 traditional distribution centers, five DG Fresh cold storage facilities and its private fleet network.
 
While Dollar General currently anticipates the majority of these roles to be temporary, the company has a strong track record of career growth and anticipates providing long-term career growth opportunities to some of these new employees.
