    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Salinas, CA).

    Interview

    First you speak with a District Manager then you're going to see the actual store manager. The process wasn't painful and if you have common sense you are going to do fine. It was a very easy interview and their not going to go to deep into tons of previous job experiences.

    Interview

    Extremely easy interview. Just made sure you are very responsible and described responsibilities of job. Was more of a description of the job, rather than an interview. Asked what type of schedule preferred and if you know anyone employed with Dollar Tree.

    Dollar Tree Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dollar Tree (San Antonio, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I went to a "hiring event" so there was no preliminary phone interview. For this reason I waited an hour for my turn to be interviewed by 2 district managers. The interview questions, with the exception of 1 or 2, seem to be all centered around how well and how fast you could move freight. They wanted to know your experience at moving large amounts of freight. Moving freight seems to be their only concern. Not one question was about your strengths and weaknesses, how well you could lead a team or your ability/experience in cash management. The interview was bizarre to say the least. After the interview I came to the conclusion that the store manager was pretty much a position of a "glorified stock worker" would be abused in terms of the number of hours worked. He/she is the only salaried person on the staff and therefore is exempt from overtime regulations. They are given the title of a "white collar" job but nothing could be further from the truth. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY and just about all dollar type stores.

    Interview Questions

    • In your past experiences in moving freight what was the average amount of freight that you moved on a weekly basis?
      Did you ever lead a freight team?
      If 3 people "called-in" right after you received freight for the week how would you handle the situation?

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    Applied to job posting on company website, literally within hours received auto-generated form rejection email saying I was not a match (although my resume and cover letter were an exact match for the job posting). Talked to two other job applicants who had exactly the same experience. Possibly there is really no job opening at Dollar Tree?
