express hiring incident

I have a question to ask for those of you who are really knowledgeable about the Dollar general business. My son has been trying to get a job for the past five months. He was finally able to get an interview with the manager at the local reatil store, Dollar general. Afterwards he was told to go to express hiring and fill out the forms for a background check. He was also told to log in with his ssn and that his password would be his birthday, only four digits. He did as he was told but he came up as invalid. I took him back to dollar general the next day to see what went wrong and the manager said that it must have been something he had typed in wrong. Supposedly his ssn. She had told us that she would contact HRIS and see if they could find out what the problem is and that she would call us if anything popped up. Weeks have passed and still no call. Please, if you all can...please. I'd like to know how long this process would actually take? How long will we have to wait and if there is at least something else, anything else we can do... I'd greatly appreaciate it.

ok i figured out the problem. a "packet" has to be created here is the number to call then call back your hiring manager n let them know 1-888-648-4473 when it prompts you hit the one for express hiring. Then like i said call your manager back and let them know. afterwards you should have the job.

I can't even get to the screen to log in. It has the Express heading at the top of the page, but the rest of the page is blank.

I'm trying to spend as little time on the phone as I have little patience for these little things. My express hiring is telling me invalid combination. I've carefully checked over everything I eve typed in and it still says invalid...

I've been trying to get hired too. They'll find I have no criminal record, I have my paperwork for being a veteran. I have retail experience. Does this just over qualify me or what?:(

It won't take my password...do we have to use a different email? I prefer to use my own. And it should be alot easier to access the dollar general sight..

For the past week i been trying to fill it out with my SSN and password but it keep saying invaild i call the help/questions number and told them my problem.They said it was reset and should work and also fill out the online packet on a computer instead on a phone or tablet. I try again after the call it didnt work

Can I get hired at Dollar General if I have been incarcerated this year. Not for theft or a felony.
