    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview Details

    I applied a few times before landing an interview. There was a single interview, which consisted of a conversation with a manager. I followed up with a phone call the next day, at which time I was notified I was hired. The best time to apply is a couple months before Christmas or Easter.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Dollar Tree in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied in person, set up an interview with the manager two days after. After going on a wild goose chase to find her, she took me to her office near the front of the store. Interview was more of a job description than anything. Told me she'd call me tomorrow ("for sure") after she checked with her assistant. Never got a call.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed for the position of sales associate to a stock manager in this company. She seemed really nice and I thought the interview went really well but she lied to me. I was told by her that it was alright with her if I got the job but she needed to speak with her supervisor first. I was told I might have to come in for a second interview but either way I would be called. That call never came. They seemed very dishonest to me.

    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.

    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Dollar Tree in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    There was no real interview. It was actually more of a more detailed job description in which the hiring manager gave me a tour and introduced me to some of the staff. I did all the paperwork that day and started working within two days. I didn't even have to have a social security card right away for the background check, but I did have to provide it three days later. Also, there was no drug test as that was probably a good thing for the rest of the employees because I bet half of the employees would have failed it.

    Interview Questions
    • The pay is only $7.05 per hour, which is minimum wage. Would this be a problem for you?   Answer Question
    • Do you have any days that you need off for school?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation as it was for a minimum wage position ($7.05 per hour). I took it more out of desperation due to the fact that it was in April of 2009 and there were no other jobs I applied to that called me back.

    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.
