Dollar General To Hire Up To 50,000 Employees By Labor Day

Variety store chain, Dollar General, is planning to hire up to 50,000 new workers between now and Labor Day to support its network of 17,400 stores, 27 distribution centers, the company’s Private Fleet and its Store Support Center.

The move to hire additional help comes as COVID-19 vaccination rates have increased, resulting in amplified foot traffic at the company’s physical stores.

“At Dollar General, we are uniquely positioned as the nation’s largest retailer by store count to serve customers through our expansive network and provide access to careers in the communities we call home,” said Kathy Reardon, Dollar General’s executive vice president and chief people officer.

“With more than 17,400 stores located within approximately five miles of 75 percent of the US population, we’re excited by the favorable impact we can make on the current job market and individuals looking to join our growing team.”

Earlier this year, Dollar General announced plans to hire more than 20,000 employees during its spring nationwide hiring event. Today’s announcement to hire more employees builds off of that program and also enables the chain store to create the needed support around its currently-anticipated 1,050 new store openings in 2021.
