Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Dollar Tree.

Interview Details

After waiting several weeks to receive a call back after submitting my resume, the interview process turned fast and furious. I received a call from the district manager who scheduled an interview two days later. This was a 30 minute interview, very conversational to cover my experience. Within the next 10 days, I had interviews with an HR rep, training manager and regional. All very basic behavior/competency based questions.

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Through corporate recruiter. Telephone interview with a regional HR manager. Handed off to district manager who took three weeks to make an initial contact. Went to work as a bench manager (Management Trainee) shadowing another store manager for eight weeks. Very basic stuff that could have been covered in a month or less considering my background.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very low key, yet to the point. The questions were asked in an open format with easy to answer parts. I was made more to feel like I had someone interested in my future than a new employer. This was a well trained, very experienced interviewer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dollar Tree in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Sent online resume, received call several days later and arranged to meet dm at one of the stores, he was real enthused about his company and asked very pointed questions about my work experience, particularly what my current job duties entailed. Interview lasted about 90 minutes total and also included a detailed discussion about salary requirements and what the job was exactly, which was to be a "benchmark" position where i would be trained for 2 months and then would be certified to be a store manager under the assumption that the next store available in the district would be mine. Even if store not immediately available i would be paid the same salary regardless and assigned to work in one of the district stores until such a position came open

    Interview Questions
    • What was a store project that i was most proud of? What was my most difficult customer and how did i win that customer over.   View Answer
