Dollar General looks to hire 20,000 workers

Dollar General plans to hire 20,000 workers this spring as the discount chain continues its expansion, reported CNN.

On Wednesday, the company said it’s looking to hire full- and part-time workers in stores and distribution centers, as well as drivers for its private-trucking fleet.

The company didn’t disclose its minimum wage for workers, but said it provides “competitive wages and benefits.”

Dollar General has more than 17,000 stores in the United States and employed 158,000 people as of Feb. 26, reported CNN. This year alone, the company is opening an additional 1,050 stores, similar to the number of stores it has opened in each of the past several years.

The 20,000 workers that the company plans to hire will expand its workforce by 13 percent.

Although many retailers struggled during the pandemic, Dollar General boomed as economically-strapped shoppers turned to discount stores for food and household essentials, reported CNN.

Dollar General’s sales at stores open for at least one year grew 16.3% in 2020, compared with the year prior, and profit increased 55%.

The company said last month it plans to open an additional 17,000 stores in the United States — doubling its store total — over the long haul. That number includes up to 3,000 Popshelf stores that target wealthier shoppers than the company’s core customer base, reported CNN.
