Award-Winning Training and Development Programs

The opportunity to build a long-term career at DG is one of the most important currencies the Company offers to attract and retain talent. In addition, DG invests significant resources into programs focused on improving the well-being of its employee base including day-one telemedicine eligibility with no co-pay and the Dollar General Employee Assistance Foundation, as well as health insurance coverage options, 401K savings and retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, paid parental leave and adoption assistance to eligible employees.
