    People are really social and make the workplace fun to be at.

    There are not whole lots of cons, but better upward mobility would be nice, along with a lower copy for medical benefits.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager

    Pros

    I loved how easy/simple any and all of the work was and customers were great.

    Cons

    Corporate, HR department did not care too much about employees. Sometimes I would be forced to work Open-Close multiple days in a row, they made me quit my outside job/hobby because they wanted to dominate my time, and they made me stop going to church on Sunday mornings because I was required to work instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are valuable! Value them! Especially your long-term LOYAL employees that stuck with you for many years only to be treated like trash and set up to be fired or terminated.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, management is very receptive and aware of the work environment.

    Cons

    Salary is mediocre. Granted, it is Dollar Tree, so one can't expect a stellar salary. Company policies are followed in spirit, but depending on the supervisor's prerogatives, the literal applications may get lost. It's also a difficult company to establish a career in.

    Pros

    You can build great customer relationships. You get first look at new merchandise.

    Cons

    Mangers will put their work load on you and when District Mangers comes in and you put your heat and sweat in to a display and your manger says that she worked very hard..... you see where this is going. If you have children this is not the job for you. Management has no understanding for life's emergencies. Getting a raise is like trying to put a fire out with gasoline.

    Pros

    company car, that was the only positive experience

    Cons

    -Not given tools needed to do the job, no laptop, no cell phone, no intermet card of money to pay for it. Company expects you to use your personal computer, phone, and you own internet. No a real DM position, more like a ASM pposition compared to other company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Regional Manager never visits the stores. The game in the market is throw the rock hide your hand.
