Sales Associate/Cashier

I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Dollar Tree in June 2013.

Interview Details – 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 Details – 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.

Interview Details – I had my interview at noon the day I was hired and found out I was hired three hours later. The hiring process was very fast, the next day I brought my identification and filled in my papers about 3 days after that I was training.
