    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Chesapeake, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview. They asked me to take them through my resume and also asked about my project management experience. Then they asked for specific examples of projects that had been successful and projects that had not been successful. Found out they were offering $28,000 less than my current salary, so I told them I was not interested in pursuing a face to face interview.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Chesapeake, VA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The initial interview was on-site at Big East career Fair. The company recruits in the spring at large conference career fairs and around the VA area. After completing the on-site interview with a Regional Director, I was passed on to corporate. I was invited over the phone to an all day event at the corporate headquarters in Chesapeake, VA.

    The corporate interview was broken down into three parts. First, the head of college recruiting the night of arrival held a group dinner. The first half of the interview day consisted of multiple information sessions. It consisted of job overview, salary and benefit calculations, and tour of the distribution center. The second half of the day consisted of interviews with all levels of HR. A total of 5 interviews were completed.

    I received a call a week later, then an official offer within two weeks.

    The corporate environment was business casual. I was impressed that even the CEO was eating in the cafeteria where we had our group lunch. Our group was greeted by almost everyone we walked past.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Chesapeake, VA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The recruiter was extremely disorganized. It was had to get her to reply to my emails when she was gathering information from me about my experience, salary, references, etc.
    I think the process would have been faster if the recruiter was not involved and the hiring manager was in charge. The interviews themselves were standard but several people interviewed me and they all seemed to ask the same general questions, what were my strengths and what were my weaknesses, basic interview 101 course questions. They were very helpful in describing the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What would your current employeer tell me about you?   Answer Question
    • Can you tell me about a time when you had to resolve a conflict with another employee?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not feel like I could negotiate the pay or benefits, other than my actual start date.
