    The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very simple and fast. It lasted all of 10 minutes and was done standing in an isle helping the manager stock supplies. All I was asked was how well can I handle money, can I work fast, what hours can I work, and how patient am I.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Dollar Tree in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very basic. I recieved a phone call with the district manager of that region and had a brief interview. He then asked me to come in for a 1 on 1 interview. After setting up a time and date i decided to go check a store out to see what the work enviorment was like since I have never seen or really heard much about this company. I truly was amazed by all the different types of product they carry for just a buck. The actual interview was informal and lay back with me asking more questions about the company then the interviewer asking questions about me. I was hired on the spot after some negotiations.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    My interview was under 30 minutes. I got hired on the spot.
    I was asked basic questions about my past experiences in retail, and how I thought items should be organized on shelf: Labels facing towards customers or not? See...very basic common sense.
    And the usual, tell me about yourself...
    It was not hard at all; you can ace this interview with a little effort.
