    Interview Details

    The interview process for me was brief. After I was initially called in I spoke with the store manager about my availability and afterwards he told me he would contact me if he was able to find a spot for me. He did, and the rest is history. The atmosphere at our store is okay; some friendly employees, some work hard and some don't. With that being said though you're experience is what you make it.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I saw the sign in the local store window that they were hiring and went inside, filled out an application in store, and handed it off. About 4 days later I got a call that I could come in for an interview.

    The interview itself was more so I sat and listened to her explain that it's a straight forwards job. It is what it is, minimum wage, and part time only with people working 2-4 shifts a week. Each shift is 5-5.5 hrs long so that they don't have to give you a mandatory break. If you go in to cover for someone's shift when they need it you're more likely to get more hours. They do all the paperwork and hiring online. She clarified if I had a car, why I wanted to work there, and how available I was.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I filled out a paper application and returned it to the manager. She accepted it and kept it on file. About three months later, she contacted me, saying she wanted an interview. I came in and talked to her for about 30 minutes. She didn't even ask me "generic" interview questions, mainly just questions about my availability and previous jobs. Her flexibility with regards to scheduling was clearly communicated as were her expectations. I was attending school at the time and she was incredibly understanding about my need for limited hours at first. Overall, the hiring and interview process was very positive.

    It was very easy. I just filled an application online, went into the store and gave it to the manager. She told me to call back in a week and I did, and I was lucky enough to get the job because two other cashiers quit and I had very good availability.
