    Practice what you preach. Do the work you order your employees to do. Or at least know how to do it right.

    Pros

    Decent pay if you have retail management experience. Cashiers don't make more than minimum wage.

    Long hours for store managers. Work nights & weekends. No time for family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bigger bonus. Store manager work their butts off. (Well at least most of us) very stressful during Xmas working mandatory 6 day work weeks.

    Pros

    The people i worked with were nice

    Cons

    My manager hardly in the store during normal business hours. And i had to go into work behind a lazy part time manager who had a bad attitude . The store was never clean. It has just on the bottom shelves 2 incest thick. I have only been with the company 3 months and already dissatisfied with the job.

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

    Pros

    Good pay if you are in mgmt./ good benefits. Good opportunity for growth. Upper mgmt. is very decent to store managers on store operations as long as you have a plan of action and your store makes good business sense.

    Cons

    Sick pay is non existent even though you are given ample hrs, you can only take it 40 hrs at a time. Just like any other job it is cutthroat competition and can be petty between stores/mgmt..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people first and foremost. they will take care of your customers. Minimum wage for hourly workers is not good enough. Even a little extra effort to show you appreciate them will earn you loyalty and the support you are looking for at all levels, not just your mgmt. team. Also monitor a little closer the wage gaps that do occur in your mgmt. teams and for what reason. Some cashier promoted mgrs. are making a whole lot more than tenured degree holding mgrs. because of personal relationships.

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

    Pros

    It's retail without the price checks (for the most part). The work environment in my particular Dollar Tree is very relaxed and I enjoy my time there, it's a great part-time job. Pay is minimum wage to start but (very small) annual raises are given.

    Cons

    If you're promoted or the minimum wage happens to rise, your raises are erased. That wasn't fun. No benefits of any sort for associates.

    Our managers always seem stressed out and overworked..

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only thing I can say is most of the costumers and the 401K. That's it really.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, not enough pay!! Under staffed. We work double, cleaning up night crews job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be....to give more hours, pay alittle better, and have enough people to work around the holidays. Let seniority Mean something. Cause I've been there for 8 years and got a new person about 1-2 months ago and she's getting more hours than I am. I do not find that to be fair!, I think it's wrong. I'm a grown up I need to have hours so I can pay bills. I don't have no help!! It makes me very upset with this company and the managers

    Pros

    Small store easy to remember everything. Everything is a dollar whats better then that. its better then no job.

    Cons

    Few hours even closer to holidays due to company forcing over hiring. 15cent a year raise little to no room for improvement for wages

    Pros

    I've heard over and over that with good old fashioned hard work , you can achieve management status rather quickly . And being a single mom, without a collage degree , this could be the solution for me.

    Cons

    So far I have no complaints .I try to stay optimistic . At times I become frustrated with the lack of work ethics in others, it can make my job all that much harder .But on the flip side , it only showcases me all that much more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My store is extremely busy , probably one of the top money makers .Because of this the stock room is packed floor to ceiling . The shelves are empty and the place is an utter disaster .If we had a week of nighttime hours , maybe we could get the place back in shape.
