    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employer works with schedule which is a tremendous help. Flexible, fast paced, and there's always something different.

    Cons

    Sometimes the customers get a little to worked up over minor things. It's a dollar store, some people that come in act like they're royalty and you should kiss the ground they walk on. I've worked in many fields and the way some of these shoppers act is a disgrace to the human race.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to stop treating their employees (including the managers) like they are pawns. They are human, they want to see the company succeed as much as the "big guys" do. Treat them with respect.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    freedom to merchandise. Not locked into speciffic planograms

    Cons

    Payroll restraints. DM's cut at any cost. Then get upset when things are not completed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    set realistic goals for a new store, and don't penalize an existing store when a new store opens close by.
