    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Joliet, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with the HR manager. 2nd interview was on site with the AGM and GM. General questions and situations. Final interview with Director was lengthy but basic.
    You need to be a subject matter expert and it helps to be able to opine on former employers, hurdles, and specific steps you used to overcome the issue.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your level of interaction with your subordinate managers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiation was very difficult. The GM presents the offer but can't negotiate. You spend a week going back and forth as he relays your concerns and requests with the Director.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Schaumburg, IL) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Basicaly, my employer/manager just asked if I wanted a job. Five minuet interview and I was in.

    Interview was oddly simple, but again, Dollar Tree doesn't care how much exp. you have, only if you have flexable hours and crap. Not much for the interview process or anything, just a simple 1-1 talk.

    Negotiation

    I was told, "If you want the job you have it."

    My advice? NEVER SAY YES TO DOLLAR TREE.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Niles, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dollar Tree (Niles, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a District Manager which was a great interview. BUT he sent my resume to a Store Manager without sending my contact number or my application which was online with their company website. He told me the store manager would be calling me for an interview, after I did not hear from her after almost a week I made contact with the Store Manager myself to let her know I was out of town on a family emergency which I was then told that there were plenty of positions open for Assistant Managers and to let her know when I returned. Also she had sent me an email from her husbands personal email account so it went in my junk mail and I would have never seen it unless I had called her. When I called her back the following Monday I was told to contact the District Manager that I interviewed with originally. He informed me that they had filled all the open positions. So they only hire friends and family members for this company because they are biased and failed to proceed in the hiring process as an equal opportunity employer!
