Recent angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) experiments have suggested that BiS2-based superconductors are at very low electron doping. Using random phase approximation (RPA) and functional renormalization group (FRG) methods, we find that g-wave pairing symmetry belonging to the irreducible representation is dominant at electron doping . The pairing symmetry is determined by inter-pocket nesting and orbital characters on the Fermi surfaces and is robust in a two-orbital model including both Hund's coupling J, and Hubbard-like Coulomb interactions U and with relatively small . With the increasing electron doping, the g-wave state competes with both the s-wave and d-wave states and no pairing symmetry emerges dominantly.
