Dollar General, previously known as J.L. Turner & Son, Inc was founded by Cal Turner in Scottsville, Kentucky. The concept of all products below $1 was introduced in 1955, and the instant success of the idea led to the conversion of all stores owned by J.L. Turner and his son. The names of the stores were changed to Dollar General Corporation in 1968. The ticker symbol “DG” was introduced to signify the inexpensive household products sold by the company. The symbol was also used in the New York Stock Exchange for trading company’s stocks. The retail stores deal in regional and national brands along with home appliances, food products, apparels, seasonal products and others.

The company has over 10,000 stores across 40 U.S. states and employs more than 80, 000 employees in different positions. The retail stores chain also has a plan to add over 635 additional stores in different locations and improve 550 present stores. More than 6,000 new employees will be recruited by the company to serve the customers and manage new and improved stores.

Applicants aiming to build their careers in the retail stores chain can submit their Dollar General Job Application to specific jobs in Stores Operation, Distribution Centers and Corporate Home Office for entry level positions to management level, hourly and salaried positions.
