    They treat their managers horribly, put in a ton of hours for little salary, and bonuses are imperviable.

    Pros

    You don't have to wear a dress shirt and tie, just a green polo. No price checks, because everything is a dollar or less.

    Cons

    Impossible to keep a staple items in stock. You work a ton of hours for very little salary compensation. I put in over 100 hours two weeks in a row, because of an assistant manager being out sick. Not even my district manager could get other stores to help out with a manager to fill in. So that meant many days working 6:30am-10:30pm. And the "bonus" guidelines are set up so that they are nearly impossible to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for with employees. When you can only start associates out at minimum wage (even with experience), do you really expect outstanding productivity??

    Pros

    The pros of working at Dollar Tree are that of working at any other retail store; you're the first to know what is going on the shelves for consumers.

    Cons

    The downsides of working at the specific store I worked at was the lack of communication between managers, poor environmental ethics, and the lack of commitment to the productivity and appeal of the store.

    Advice to Management

    Individual stores should be investigated with a keen eye. The success of a store is based on its appearance and how well the manager can manage the day to day routine.

    Pros

    Plenty to do to keep you busy throughout the day.

    Cons

    It's a lot of work. Even though you are an operations manager, you are spending most of your time stocking shelves and unloading freight from trucks. Most of the time you are understaffed and it is just you and 1 other employee in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Change your price points and focus more on training and customer service.
