    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really there are none except a very small pay check for a lot of work.

    Cons

    Low pay, unreachable goals, not enough employees to cover shifts, every day the store would get totally trashed and the closers are expected to clean it and be out 30 after the store closed (which was near impossible), favoritism, and always lots of drama.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the corporate pencil pushers actually come work in a store to see how it really works. Also provide more training before pushing new employees out on their own. Allow more hours for the closing shifts.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here are the customers. Being around them made your day worth it. The work was easy though and the pay was decent for what you did.

    Cons

    Terrible management that did not know how to run a store. Constantly yelling at people for the smallest of mistakes and never let cashiers even have a water bottle below their register.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into some of the people you have managing your locations. Very unprofessional.

    Pros

    If you are lucky you get to work with a few good people.

    Cons

    Low pay. Part-time but work full time hours. No benefits. Awful store management. Managers have their "favorites" whom hardly do any work but get the most hours. Not enough employees to cover all shifts. High turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some managers who don't play favorites.

    Pros

    pay was alright. the crew was dedicated.

    Cons

    DM clueless. Wanted store manager at store open to close, no days off. unorginized, and rude. No chance for store manager to control crew, DM wanted all the control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    train the DM on how to be leaders. Fin a way to comunate on a possitive note. alow the store manager to be in control of the store.

    Pros

    the only thing I would say is the customer base. You will have them for life

    Cons

    Nothing at all, more workload with a company that runs a 4-5% labor

    rememeber..... this company pays 11% below the national average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself and hire someone with a brain. Ten years in retail management and this is by far the worst experience Ive ever had. Very unprofessional regional staff which is always negative

    Pros

    Easy job, less work load and flexible schedule are the only reasons to work at Dollar Tree

    Cons

    Substandard pay, inferior benefits and not a whole lot of room for personal growth and development.

    Care for your employees and stop treating them unfairly.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are two Dollar Trees in my city, and I was working at the nicer one. We kept our location much nicer than the other one, and I could tell this because people were often surprised when they walked in. They also complimented us. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about Dollar Tree employees having to work through breaks without pay, but I never experienced that while I was there.

    Cons

    The downside of my experience there was a schedule that changed weekly. It would have been nice to have a consistent schedule. Another downside is they only pay minimum wage, but from my experience it's an alright starter job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either schedule more employees or expect employees to do less on their shifts; it can get very busy and messy in the store. Sometimes it's impossible for the number of employees that are there to get everything done that needs to be done.
