    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Came in on my interview day. There was no interview just a slew of questions on if i could do the duties expected. Was immediately promoted to assistant manager right then and there(I had much previous experience but he didnt even care or ask about it, let alone look at my resume) Then I was expected to start work after my interview without any previous notice. gtfoh The turnover rate is tremendous. I left and was never seen there again simply because i enjoyed working in a warehouse over this place. Good Luck!
