IDK for sure, but I've applied at a total of 9 Dollar Generals (1 about a year 1/2 ago-the only time I took the assessment; 8 about a month ago.) Every one of them kicked out a reply with "we have decided to pursue other candidates at this time."

My guess is the assessment had plenty to do with it, since the last 8 I applied at same time and the replies came at the same time. This is crazy, it's Dollar Store not a Fortune 500 office... smh

If you fail the test once in a year, it doesnt matter how many times you apply and take the test again. You can not be hired for a year if you fail the test. So you can apply all you want but your application will not appear in a SMs system.

Also if you apply online and don't take and pass the assessment your application wont show up on a SMs system either.

About the provit test or assessment test or what ever it is called. There is no logical correct answer that can be given. As a manager I have seen these type of things come up on a time to time case. I have had long term employees do stupid things just out of a fluke not at all like them ever. One question was why someone left right after the manager but still had 2 hours left on the shift. No answer fit that question. Because I had someone do just about that same thing in real life and it was none of the answers.

The best answer is the answer that you have experienced. Right or Wrong it is the best answer.

Answer the questions on your experience... and you can't be wrong. Experience beats any other answer.

DG might think you are wrong but you're not wrong.

If you want to answer giving the benefit of the doubt then there would never be anyone fired from DG. Has anyone been fired from DG for doing something on one of the questions that was asked? Take them to court get the test result from the person who fired you and if they answered the question different... then they need to give back your job. and give you the benefit of the doubt.

The assessment test is stupid. How could I know why someone left their shift early, why would I know why someone was eating food but didn't pay for it, How would I know why so and so clocked in but then left the store, The assessment test was all about what another person was or wasn't doing. It should have been questions about ME. I am a good employee, always on time and do the best I can. I have been in customer service for over 30 years. I guess I did not meet the assessment since I never heard back from DG. They dropped the ball on this one.

Smh.. Actually Dollar General is a fortune 500 company. Taking precautions on who they hire is completely respectable. Its about values and morals. Not math or anything. If u can't pass the assesment then u need to evaluate yourself.

Have you seen this test? Most of the questions you either don't know how to answer or none of the given answers fit what you would do. Nothing wrong with taking precautions on who they hire but most of the questions seem to be for manager positions. All I needed was a regular cashier position. DJsbabies1's reply hit the nail on the head. Most of the questions (and these tests in general) give me poker face. I don't claim to be perfect but I have decent values, morals, and work ethic. Bring back paper applications employers, or make the test a little below the apparent MBA requirement to pass it.
