I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Dollar Tree in June 2013.

    Interview

    My application was in for about a week before I got a call. I interviewed the next day and found out I got the job the next through a phone call. I was told to come in prepared because I might possibly get on the register. We sat in the office for about 2 hours just talking about the job mostly and whats expected of me. We then took a small tour of the store and back room. I watched a couple of videos and was on the register for the last hour. It was really busy and the person watching over me wasn't much help. They acted as though the job was so easy I should pick it up right away even though I've never worked a register.

    Overall it's an extremely easy process. Very short, and no drug test. The managers really only care about availability, nothing else. So don't be nervous going into it, anyones qualified for this job and if you seem like you're at least awake and interested you'll probably get the job.

    Negotiation

    Ask questions. They go over everything so fast because they think it's so "easy" but the Dollar Tree has a lot of policies and responsibilities that are sometimes unclear.
