Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree.

Interview Details – You have to print out a application from home, they don't give them out in the stores anymore. Then you have to drop off it off at the store you want to work at, to give you the best chance of being hired, you need to give it to the Store manager since they do the hiring. then from there you have to wait to be called, they only call who they want to hire so if you get a call thats pretty much it "you're hired". Each manager has there own process but there usually isn't much of an interview they just want to make sure you are capable to handle the register.

Interview Question – Keep your availability open if you want to make any money at this job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – none they pay minimum wage for cashiers
