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

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers
    Easy work to do
    No price check (it's all a dollar!)
    Friendly Management
    Overall good work environment
    Usually friendly customers
    The regulars (There are some folks you see every other day consistently)

    Cons

    The pay rate,
    you are paid ten cents over min wage at $7.35
    The hours,
    you are scheduled by how much revenue the store
    brings in each week, and it's a dollar store so I
    work between 10 and 20 hours a week.
    You don't earn alot of money, but its okay for someone
    who doesn't have student loans to pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really like all of my managers at dollar tree, there is only one manager at the store where I work that I would call lazy, but we can't have everything. They are all really easy to work with and talk to, I think my only advice would be to allow more hours because even on busy days calling in more workers in looked down on by the upper upper management (because they lose some of their bonus money when associates work more).

    Pros

    As a manager, you have the ability through agressive ordering and creative merchandising to have a strong impact on sales.

    Cons

    The labor budget constraints don't allow for sufficient coverage of store. The customers shop the store with no regard for its cleanliness, opening and breaking many products and allowing children to run around unsupervised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep new location size down, to help keep store shelves full and store clean and recovered.

    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.
