Dollar General in management hiring spree

Dollar General needs more managers to support its rapid growth — and it wants them sooner rather than later.

The discounter on Thursday said that during the next 10 days it is looking to fill management roles within its retail operations, distribution centers and corporate functions. Available positions include retail district managers, retail region directors, distribution center assistant directors and distribution center supervisors.

Dollar General continues to grow at a fast pace. It is on track to open 900 stores in 2018.

"It's an exciting time to join Dollar General as we seek qualified candidates to support our tremendous growth," said Bob Ravener, Dollar General's executive VP president and chief people officer. "In FY 2018 alone, we plan to create approximately 7,000 new jobs, in addition to the approximately 50,000 jobs we have created in the last decade.”

As of May 4, Dollar General operated 14,761 stores in 44 states.
