    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    all of my coworkers and managers are extremely friendly, the work is not difficult and upper management is always willing to work around your schedule

    Cons

    the pay sucks--but thats more of a corporate thing--and the hours are not that great, the customers are surprisingly stupid 90% of the time

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. Dollar Tree hires any and every one with a valid social security number.

    Cons

    No back ground check for hourly employees. Currently I work with someone who served 16 years for murder, someone with domestic violence charges and one with theft. These a people verify bank deposits then follow me to the bank at closing since Dollar Tree is too cheap to have money picked up by armored car.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporatet is home at night with their families leaving store managers to deal with people from all walks of like. Protect us with background checks!

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to gain experience as a cashier, so counting money and interacting with people. These are two good skills that many will need moving forward in their careers (especially people skills).

    Cons

    The store management lacked accountability from within which led to internal issues. Pay (minimum wage) does not match the work we had to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact more with the employees and store management to be more on one accord with the stores needs.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Debt free Fortune 500 company with 5000 locations. Opportunity for advancement is great. I have never worked for a company with so many internal promotions. When other companies are cutting payroll, closing locations or just going out of business, DT is growing like crazy.

    Cons

    Store Manager position is very hands on.

    I love the store, but they expect a cashier to do a lot for 7.35 an hour!
