Feb '10
Dollar General the nation's largest retailer by number of stores, has announced plans to create approximately 5,000 new jobs this year to support the planned opening of 600 new stores over the next 12 months.

The 5,000 anticipated new jobs come on the heels of approximately 4,000 new jobs created by Dollar General in 2009, bringing the estimated total to 9,000 over two years.

“Despite today's tough economic climate, Dollar General continues to hire great talent,” said Bob Ravener, Dollar General's senior vice president and chief people officer. “We have exciting plans for 2010, which include expanding our work force in many suburban, rural and urban communities. We are aggressively recruiting job seekers who share a commitment to serving others and maintaining Dollar General's leadership as a destination for value.”

Dollar General will be adding jobs throughout the chain. With more than 8,800 stores, Dollar General is already one of the nation's largest employers with approximately 78,000 employees.

Dollar General offers competitive wages and benefits, as well as both part-time and full-time opportunities. Positions are available at various levels within the company throughout the year, including store, field and other store support positions.
