Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Jacksonville, FL

Application Details

I interviewed 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
