Here For What Matters. Join Us.


At Dollar General, our actions are guided by a simple mission: Serving Others. For our customers, this means placing them at the center of all we do, working every day to deliver value and convenience through our more than 19,000 neighborhood general stores. For our employees, this means respect and the opportunity to grow and develop their careers, and for our communities, this means helping support the communities we call home.

Diversity & Inclusion

Together we are better. Building a culture that respects the dignity and differences in others is driving our success. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is supported through our actions, decisions and initiatives.
At Dollar General, our mission of Serving Others includes everyone!


Creating Community.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide information and education that helps Dollar General foster a more diverse and inclusive work environment. These groups focus on opportunities to satisfy customer needs, and provide a stronger tie to the communities in which we live and serve.


Dollar General is committed to growing our purchases of goods and services from vendors who are certified as minority, women, LGBTQIA+ community member, veteran, and/or a person with a disability. We believe that being in the communities where we work and serve allows us to provide an opportunity to foster economic inclusion and drive our mission of Serving Others.

Social impact


The Life-Changing Gift of Literacy.

The Dollar General Literacy Foundation believes that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to receive a basic education. Created in honor of our co-founder J.L. Turner, who was functionally illiterate, the Dollar General Literacy Foundation provides grants to literacy programs in Dollar General hometown communities. Whether an individual is learning to read, preparing for their high school equivalency or learning the English language, we believe it is never too late to learn!


We salute your dedication.

Integrity. Discipline. Commitment. All of these principles are just some of the reasons why Dollar General values and appreciates your military experience.
