    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Stockton, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockton, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Wasn't much of an interview. If they called you in you were most likely hired on the spot unless they did not like your appearance. My store manager is big on first impressions and he bases it off of appearance. Just come in to the interview well dressed and clean looking. They pretty much just tell you what their expectations are of you and the dress code and add you onto their system. You'll be working in a matter of 2 days or less after that.

    Interview Questions
    • There was honestly no questions asked. Other than are you available to work mornings, nights, weekends, and holidays.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate unless you are going in as management. All associates get minimum wage.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Basically told that you have to wear a green shirt and black pants and will only get paid $7.35 an hour and if you leave you should give 2 weeks notice. I was told that everyone leaves because you only get $7.35 an hour and it you want more money, that is the only way to do it. Apparently there are no pay increases ever unless the minimum wage goes up.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I brought in my application to the store manager. She then scheduled me for an interview that day and asked me to come back on a certain date or time. It wasn't much of an interview really; she basically asked me my hours of availability, what my plans were for the future, why I wanted to work at Dollar Tree, then gave me the job.
