I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)Pros
A couple of the pro's of Dollar Tree is that it has flexible scheduling and a fast paced environment. Being a cashier is one of the easiest positions.Cons
Hourly Associates are entitled to no benefits, limited hours, and the "team" just talks crap about other co-workers when they're not around. Turn over is really high because the pay is minimum wage and the raises are minimal (0-8 cents/yr). Shoplifters and LP Policies make it really difficult for front end staff. We're expected to make everyone feel welcomed while deeming them to be suspected shoplifters.
Scheduling, while flexible, can be a nightmare. You may be scheduled from X-Y, but Y becomes Z. This is not good for those with families, second jobs, or a life outside of Dollar Tree. This is a pro to those with a wide open schedule.
Associate Appreciation Day is an event once a year where associates can give 10% discounts to friends, relatives, and anyone who was given a certificate by an associate. The requirements are that you spend a minimum of $10.00 in order to take advantage of the 10% off your order special. This brings your total order down to $9.63 (after tax). It's not much of an appreciation for an associate that we save $1.07 on $10. Given the amount of work that goes into operating a store.
Lastly, there is not much room for advancement in the company. As an hourly associate your next step would be a part time assistant manager. Store Managers have no authority to promote people to these ranks, this is totally dependent on the District & Regional Managers, both of which you hardly see.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Undercover Boss! I would love for the CEO to come and experience the life of a stocker and cashier at Dollar Tree. You will understand the struggle we experience with the unrealistic stocking quotas. It's nearly impossible to get 43 cases of an item up onto the shelf in 1 hour when you also have to deal with customers, monitoring for shoplifters, and putting products back into their correct places.
Hours are very minimal, and many of us need second and third jobs to make ends meet. We'd love to see a minimum 20 hour work week.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
