    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    Staying busy and organized is what I know. I been in customer service for about 16 years and as a manage . I understand working smarter and not harder.

    Cons

    The down side i could see would be not having what a customer is looking for on hand , nothing like an disappointed customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am looking for a part time position. I will be a very good employee, as long as I am trained or told what to do as for as the posistion is concerned. Ineed a job so I may make sure I have the money to pay my monthly bills, and keep my home. I live alone and there are things that I need and want, mostly need. I want to take care of myself. Thank You.

    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    Pay is good. Bonus opportunity. 15 percent discount on stock purchases. Always busy. Chance to show merchandising skills.

    Cons

    Hours
    You work all the time. You have a ton of employees that work less than 15 hours a week so they are never available when you need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More full time positions. Salary assistant managers so they can work more as needed. Each store needs 3.

    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.
