Interview Question – It was a long time ago but when you are in training to be a store manager you get grilled by a table of like 6 people who ask a ton of questions and scenarios . if you answer right you luck out and get the job but answer wrong or not what they want to hear they move it along .   View Answer

Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Dollar Tree in March 2010.

Interview Details – Apply online for company positions. You will have to interview with the dm which makes the decision to hire you. My interview was based off of situation questions, typically what would you do if. Your past experience will play a major role on how dm will want to place you. If you have what they think it takes for you to be successful as a store manager than you will most likely go into the training program. If you don't have all the leadership ability they think you need they may offer a assistant position.

Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Redding, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in March 2014.

Interview Details – I had a recommendation from an assistant manager that I had worked with at another job after finding myself unexpectedly unemployed. The manager seemed almost eager to hire me, though she said "This job is minimum wage." a total of five or more times during the interview. In fact, it all went so quickly I don't even remember if she asked me any real questions of note at all. I think she was trusting her assistant manager fully, which does make me feel kind of bad that I left the job without notice after getting an offer for something better.

Interview Question – It wasn't so much a question, just the frequency at which she mentioned that the job is minimum wage and only about 16 hours a week. I think she uses that as a test to see if the person she is interviewing is desperate enough to work for that little.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. Either you accepted the terms, or they found some other desperate person who would, and in this economy there are no shortage of those.
