    Pros

    The other employees were like family.
    5 hour shifts make it easy to work around for part time job

    Cons

    You spend more time moving things around than anything else.
    Corporate has little care for their employees
    Who wants to work 1 shift a week?
    5 hour overnight shifts for 9 bucks an hour are simply not worth the time/energy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have common sense
    Instead of following every rule in the book, adapt to certain situations and work with them.

    Pros

    Working here you get to know the community and talk with interesting people. It is retail so expect the worst from a few

    Cons

    Complete disregard for company policy from full time management. The district manager can never be reached and has obvious favoritism towards select employees. The pay is also outrageous. Associates make 7.75 per hour for an 8 or 10 hour week. Management doesn't make too much more but works 30 - 40 hours a week doing 9 or 10 different tasks around the store ranging from paper work, to running a register, to even stocking shelves all while being scrutinized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees and give out some decent hours. The sales that are expected of a store for a week is the pay someone a 13 an hour for a 40 hour week makes in a year. Stop lining your pockets and pay from the ground up. You can wait for your next $30,000 bonus when the rest of us can afford to eat

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I had great hours i chose to work early shifts 4am 5am and was able to spend the afternoons with my family. when working on the sales floor your meet alot of great people but like anywhere there are a few bad apples. Made some great friend ships with coworkers and management. And if need i would work at other stores within our area.

    Cons

    But due to the unorganized and horrible work ethics of the management in all the stores Ive worked at there was no way that i would recommend this job to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to evaluate your company's management and find who can do a simple job of managing their time right and find people that are upbeat about working their job not just willing to do it.

    Pros

    This company puts a few dollars in your pocket when there are no ditches to dig or sewers to clean.

    Cons

    Every worker is treated like a thief. It is insulting to not be able to purchase something for break or lunch without taping the receipt to the item. And if you purchase more than one item, such as a drink and a sandwich and chips. Three separate sales must be rung up and a separate receipt taped to each item as you consume it in the break room. This company is, at best, just a fill-in job until a better one comes along. It is a shame to feel like you are walking on eggshells as you are monitored via cctv. If workers were treated with a little more respect, there would not be so much turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide an anonymous channel to voice employee concerns without fear of reprisal.
