    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    Pay is good. Bonus opportunity. 15 percent discount on stock purchases. Always busy. Chance to show merchandising skills.

    Cons

    Hours
    You work all the time. You have a ton of employees that work less than 15 hours a week so they are never available when you need them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More full time positions. Salary assistant managers so they can work more as needed. Each store needs 3.

    Senior leadership ( CEO and COO) are great to work for. Some of Zone VPs are very weak.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay if you are in mgmt./ good benefits. Good opportunity for growth. Upper mgmt. is very decent to store managers on store operations as long as you have a plan of action and your store makes good business sense.

    Cons

    Sick pay is non existent even though you are given ample hrs, you can only take it 40 hrs at a time. Just like any other job it is cutthroat competition and can be petty between stores/mgmt..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people first and foremost. they will take care of your customers. Minimum wage for hourly workers is not good enough. Even a little extra effort to show you appreciate them will earn you loyalty and the support you are looking for at all levels, not just your mgmt. team. Also monitor a little closer the wage gaps that do occur in your mgmt. teams and for what reason. Some cashier promoted mgrs. are making a whole lot more than tenured degree holding mgrs. because of personal relationships.

    Pros

    Always two people working so that managers and cashiers can get stuff done

    Cons

    Once a store gets broken its hard to fix. Some times stores go with out a store manager for a year or two

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use some of the money that lines the pockets of the share holders to fix some of your stores

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

    Pros

    It's retail without the price checks (for the most part). The work environment in my particular Dollar Tree is very relaxed and I enjoy my time there, it's a great part-time job. Pay is minimum wage to start but (very small) annual raises are given.

    Cons

    If you're promoted or the minimum wage happens to rise, your raises are erased. That wasn't fun. No benefits of any sort for associates.

    Our managers always seem stressed out and overworked..

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The only thing I can say is most of the costumers and the 401K. That's it really.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, not enough pay!! Under staffed. We work double, cleaning up night crews job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be....to give more hours, pay alittle better, and have enough people to work around the holidays. Let seniority Mean something. Cause I've been there for 8 years and got a new person about 1-2 months ago and she's getting more hours than I am. I do not find that to be fair!, I think it's wrong. I'm a grown up I need to have hours so I can pay bills. I don't have no help!! It makes me very upset with this company and the managers
