Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Oklahoma City, OK) in August 2015.

Interview

Was called by a recruiter after I put my application on indeed.com, interviewed with her over the phone and then went to the store the next day to meet with a dm. The whole interview with him lasted an hour. Everything thing went well I take it because he said he was going to set up a time for the regional director and hr to call me to have a phone interview. Waiting on that.

    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 days. I interviewed 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 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Baltimore, MD) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Met with multiple members of the regional team on a career day. The whole process didn't take longer than 2 hours. Everyone was pleasant and the common dress code was business casual. The more people you meet with, the higher your chances of getting hired. Overall a good experience. They seemed to be very interested in de-stressing the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed 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. Received emails for a background check and professional references. The whole process was simple and professional. It took a month in a half from application to job offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Jacksonville, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Incredibly informal interview process with someone who was preparing for inventory. Wasn't as professional as I'd anticipated, based on my previous experience. I met with a gentleman who was wearing jeans and was less than polished. I was also surprised by the informality of the interview questions themselves.
