GOODLETTSVILLE, TN. — Dollar General is planning to add up to 50,000 new employees by the end of April as it continues to work to meet customer needs during the COVID-19 pandemic

The company operates more than 16,300 stores in 45 states, including several in Maryland.

There are also 17 traditional distribution centers, five fresh cold storage facilities and its private fleet network.

Dollar General provides employees with competitive wages, world-class and award-winning training, and development programs and expansive benefits including day-one eligibility to telemedicine, health insurance coverage options, 401K savings and retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, Dollar General’s Employee Assistance Foundation, paid parental leave, adoption assistance and much more.
