Cashier Interview

Cashier
Turnersville, NJ

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in December 2008.

Interview Details – The process was pretty simple. I walked in and asked for an application in which I filled it out and returned it at the store. I got a call back and was asked to interview. The interview was one-on-one with the store manager. The manager asked pretty simple and straight-forward questions such as, "Tell me about yourself?" and "Why do you want to work here?". They ask for your availability schedule and prefer someone who can also work on the weekends. The interview was okay and not too stressful.

Interview Question – Can you work if asked to stay longer?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation in salary. Base rate at minimum wage.

Operations Manager Interview

Operations Manager
Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Dollar Tree in October 2011.

Interview Question – If you know the standard Corporate Questions you would do just fine. They do not throw in any curve ball questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – After 20 mins I was offered a position and we negotiated salary. They were paying much less than my previous job even with the bonus incentive but, it was hard to find a job during that time so I accepted the offer.
