Yes, when applying for a job at Dollar General you should expect an assessment test, and a background check.
At Dollar General ALL applications are done online. Some online job applications will have you check a box for consenting to a background check or some will say that by submitting the application you agree to a background check. Either way, before any background check is done, they must have your consent.
Once you have done your online application and assessment test you may qualify for an interview. Once the interview process is complete and you are given a contingent offer for employment, that is when a Dollar General background check will be done.
Employers may change what type of background check is done based on the type of job you will be doing. At Dollar General the background check is used to make sure you will be a good fit for the position.
Depending on the state you live in, there are laws and limitations on what can be searched and reported on your background check. Some states do not allow non-convictions to ever be reported and some have a limit of seven years depending on the position and pay. If you were convicted of a crime, there is no time limit on how long it can be reported on a background check.
If you lost a potential job at Dollar General, your start date was delayed, or you lost a promotion at Dollar General due a background check that had inaccurate information, or information that it should not contain, you may be able to sue in federal court.
