    Pros

    Promote from within Good first job for entering retail field

    Cons

    Poor communication among district manager to store managers Inconsistent store policies High turnover Pay & hours Schedule changes weekly

    Advice to Management

    Make sure store policies are consistent from store to store. Store managers should have a weekly meeting to spell out what needs to be accomplished that week and delegate and prioritize to employees what they need to complete each shift so there is no confusion

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Other Store Managers, for the most part, are helpful to one another.

    Cons

    District Managers are really just ex Store Managers who are extraordinary butt kissers. I worked in NC and FL and found all of them to be useless in all areas. I've worked with great DM's both past and present who are huge advantages to the stores they run. DO NOT look for this at Dollar Tree. The payroll is nonexistent and they expect miracles for nothing. Go shopping there and investigate before you even apply.

    Advice to Management

    DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! Don't just believe all you read but do some actual footwork on this. Go talk to management at stores as well as their employees. I believe you'll find a better fit elsewhere.

    Pros

    Customers/no price checks and employees

    Cons

    Pay/no hours/store manager/lack of training for assistants

    Advice to Management

    Develop a training program other than showing assistants in 20 minutes what to do and ILearns. Managers need people skills on how to talk to their employees.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, challenging work and employees were dedicated and hardworking

    Cons

    The pay is ridiculous for what is required. No incentive for anyone below store manager to push the freight and be compensated

    Advice to Management

    Either put up the money to pay people appropriately for what you demand... Or stop demanding the ridiculous work load you put on these people. Other companies pay way better and treat the associates like they should be treated

    No work life balance expect to work min 60 hours weekly (store management) We rely 100% on china (no problems with china) But when Oakland port went on strike we felt it No communication Turnover is extremely high. (3 District managers less then year Competition is rising in bay area (dollar general and 99 cent stores opening this and next year Do not expect to get developed No regional HR or LP. so very inconsistent when terming people
