    Pros

    Job functions are essentially easily if your have prior management experience same kinda basics and system isn't too hard to learn. Higher ups come visit regularly so you get to see some of the people who make the ideas and changes within company.

    Cons

    Not enough support from DMs all the way up to RMs(includes trainer). Salary isn't really competitive and not enough focus on internal growth.

    Advice to Management

    Be true to what you tell people and actually try to promote from within.

    Pros

    No micro managing. Able to move into assistant manager position quickly if desired.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. Not full time. Not the best clientele.

    Advice to Management

    A little more direction for new employees. The store and bathrooms should be cleaned on a regular basis.

    Great company morale with corporate

    Cons

    Being a training manager...im training new candidates making 5k more than me...n i have 5 yrs experience w the company

    Advice to Management

    Take in account the hard work and dedidcation managers have and reward them with a monetary incentive rather than just a "bonus" that requires even more hard work

    Pros

    Flexible hours, not very strict with attire, whenever it was slow they would put me on the floor to return products (always kept you busy). Good place just for a job while in school.

    Cons

    Terrible management. They were very unprofessional, sometimes playing music on their phone and getting angry at customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional in order to give Dollar Tree and better name and attract more potential employees

    Pros

    Easy store to run if you are in a well placed location.

    Monthly bonuses very achievable.

    Cons

    Company management is slowly disconnecting with actual events at store level. Many reports are forged in most store. Requirements and expectations rarely mathematically add up with the company directive for productivity and sales.

    Advice to Management

    Seems everything is a one way street when it comes to communication. Based on fake metrics that are being generated at the store level, I feel the upper management has no real idea as to is really happening at the store. I would love to see a store that follows the freezer and recovery tasks as directed. The retail environment is simply too dynamic to be able to plan your daily recovery needs to the "T", 3 weeks out.

    Pros

    Easy to attain starter job for acquiring the cash handling and management. Teller, Station Agent, Assist. manager etc.

    Cons

    Pays in the lower percentile for ALL JOB TITLES. This company's policies seem greedy in they're nature. Over work with low pay. You will be asked to perform task outside of your job description often. Policies help bread vile and disrespectful managers who assume impunity over lesser paid workers regardless of competence or socialization skills. No commission on sales. Low rewards for talents shown in the workplace. Little to no increase in work hours. No employee perks such as discounts...only suspicion of theft. I think this is all a response to the current economy and raising company cost/liabilities such as healthcare for full-time workers. and silly fines etc. Lastly, keep in mind this is a low end retail business...customers will reflect this...there is room for conflict over very insignificant amount of change and overall rowdiness of customers.

    Advice to Management

    There is a great need for better organizational skills and professionally on part of the store managers.

    Pros

    Fairly easy work. The pay, when you actually get hours.

    Cons

    The hours. Managers attitudes. Employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a job where you don't come in aggravated all the time.

    Pros

    I WORK AT DEALS BECAUSE I AM GOING TO SCHOOL AND IT FLEXIBLE.

    Cons

    working with this company is like working under slave driver. you are over worked, the mangers get the credits and you are under paid.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to teach their store managers and assistant mangers how to treat their workers with integrity. They need to increase their wages.


  11. My view of Dollar Tree is that it was all good until holidays was up. People change, hours changed.
