Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

Interview

All she did was bring me in and ask me a few questions, didn't tell me anything real about the job or the store and candy coated everything. The store she stuck me with was a complete disaster but she didn't mention that or several robberies at all!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview 24 hours after I had applied. I interviewed with a district manager, who always dressed in sweatpants, and was very unprofessional. (coming from a well known retailer before this, I was shocked). I was told about the job, the position, and the training, and then asked if I thought I could handle the job. I said yes, so he gave me another time to come back and have an interview with his boss. I came back another day, and he was still dressed in sweatpants and a wrinkly polo shirt. His boss was dressed in a button down shirt and dress slacks, I was a little more impressed in this interview. He mainly asked me questions about how my last employer handled issues, training, etc and if I could get training materials from my previous employer for them to secretly use. Then asked if I could handle the job, I said yes, and they presented me with a job offer on the spot. This was the easiest interview in my life.

    Negotiation

    I negotiated a few things, very easy, I told them what I wanted and they said ok and made it happen.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    applied online and was contacted by a DM over 3 weeks later to come in during a job fair. Was greeted by 2 very friendly DMs who turned out to be very nice. Typical interview they are just looking for the right person for the job and part of it was them making sure I understood that the job would be a lot of stocking because the average store moves quite a bit of product.

    Interview Questions

    • nothing...go in with confidence. That seems to be what they are looking for.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had applied for a position in the city, but was offered one that was almost an hour away instead. When Dollar Tree hires, DMs hire for their district and that can mean any store in their district. Needed a job that was closer without the commute.

    Really easy process. Had two interviews with the District Manager. The next step was an interview with the human resource training and hiring manager.

    Interview with district manager. Casual conversation about work experience and details about managing others. Put through to regional manager.

    Interview

    They gave me two over the phone calls and a panel interview with the Hiring Manager and about four others for the new stores they were opening up. They made me feel welcomed and the interview went really well. I would recommend practice on your basic previous job description and how you would improve their company.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really difficult, they just wanted to know about my previous job description and how would I manage their store.   Answer Question
