Dollar General Plans To Hire 10,000 Employees By Mid-October
The U.S. discount retailer Dollar General Corp said it plans to hire 10,000 employees by mid-October. By doing this the company will boost its headcount by nearly 9 percent. This will help protect its turf among the fierce competition and it will support its expansion efforts.
The company plans to hire full-time and part-time employees, including permanent sales floor positions such as store managers, lead sales associates and store associates.
This news comes after Wal-Mart stores cut 7,000 back- office jobs so they could focus more of its resources on the sales floor.
Due to aggressive expansion, improving product assortment and low prices Dollar store has consumed the market shares of their big box rivals in previous years.
Dollar General operates more than 13,000 stores in the Unites States and plans to open 900 stores this year and about 1,000 more in 2017.
The retailer has hired 42,000 employees since 2008 and as of Feb 26 it employs 1113,400 full-time and part-time employees.
