    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a Job and has Steady work...

    Cons

    The managers show favoritism
    Male managers hit on the female workers
    It seems like making quota isnt good enough
    You can easily get fired if you are new
    Some employees are immature and classless and managers find it entertaining
    They take advantage of the temp service process
    They use the temps for odd jobs with no intent to hire them long term.................I could go on and on.

    Pros

    every thing is a dollar.

    Cons

    no pay for associates or hours. managers do a lot with no resourses as payroll.business could do better,look better if only payroll was given. managers work over 60 hrs a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more to associates so they stay and do a better job.give some pay roll hours to manager so they have nicer ,fuller and happy stores.

    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    the management was nice.
    everything was cheap.

    Cons

    bad work hours
    had to come in at 6 am sometimes to unload shipments.
    some customers were very unpleasant for no reason or a bit crazy.
    the pay was not worth the work i was putting in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i was pretty happy with my management.
