Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Columbus, OH) in July 2015.

Interview

Was called in for an interview about 4 days after I turned in my application at the store. Interview was basically just "Why do you want to work here?" and "What is your availability?" They hired on the spot and I filled out my paperwork and everything right then. Scheduled my first day of training for the next day. It was very quick and simple.

    Interview

    Extremely easy interview. Just made sure you are very responsible and described responsibilities of job. Was more of a description of the job, rather than an interview. Asked what type of schedule preferred and if you know anyone employed with Dollar Tree.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Philadelphia, PA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is the same standard interview as any other retailer. The typical questions asking if you were ever late for work, absent from work, how many years of experience. At least my age wasn't called into question by telling me I'm overqualified, aka over 35.

    Interview Questions

    • Only interested in what hours I could work and made sure to tell me that he hired regardless of age (I'm 52) four times. Thanks for that.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation phase, this was for a minimum wage job as a cashier.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Originally I had applied at Dollar Tree to be a cashier, but then minutes into the interview I decided that I'd have a better chance at getting hired if I state that I'm interested in being a freight associate, since I didn't have any previous experience as a cashier. This interview went very well and the manager and the assistant manager were very laid back and made me feel comfortable during the job interview.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your hours of availability like? What position are you interested in? Why did you apply to work at Dollar Tree? What previous job experience do you have prior to applying to work at Dollar Tree?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No, there wasn't any negotiation phases.
