    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Sacramento, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    There was a job fair for local Dollar Tree stores hiring all positions. First I filled out a standard paper application, then went in for the first interview. The first interview was standard questions like "Why Dollar Tree" and a couple behavioral "How would you..." questions. First interview took about 15 minutes. Second interview was with the district manager and it consisted more about me talking about my experiences and what the job entails. One week later, I got an offer. Haven't decided whether to take it or not, because the pay is atrocious. Barely above minimum wage for a management position is just wrong...but I need the job so I will most likely take it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Worcester, MA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Quick, painless, they were looking for a body, rudimentory questions, can you lift, can you work weekends, holidays, are you able and willing to unload a 1700 piece truck, are you able to put out 20 boxes in 15 min. How fast can you scan 5 orders at a register, does it bother you to be to work at 6 am? Just very simple questions, but asked very quickly to see if you get annoyed. The DM conducted the interview with the store manager present. Store manager is a really great guy (still stop by to see him and say hi) and the DM, while hard-nosed, was a decent person.

    Interview Questions

    • can you stock shelves and run a register at the same time   Answer Question

    Negotiation
