    Pros

    Most employees try real hard to make things nice for the customers.

    Cons

    Company is totally unrealistic about expectations and does not care about extremely high turnover in store management personnel or part time associate turnover. Also believes that all employees are thieves until proven otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    No need for advice since no one above store manager cares what you think.

    Advice to Management

    must be single and devoted to the company

    Pros

    Move up the ladder fast for the self motivated. With multiple store in area it's easy to transfer to a higher volume store.

    Cons

    Low pay, barely above minimum wage in Sunnyvale which is now $10.30. High stressed store managers with poor communication skills.

    Advice to Management

    Who's is Dollar Tree? Those overworked, underpaid, part-time team members not the high paid DM's or RM's who have no clue what it really takes to receive 1900 boxes of freight, stock it within 48 hours and take care of customers that are stacked 10+ people deep down the aisles because our budgets can't afford it and yet we're making 50% margins.

    Pros

    My Co workers were amazing; they always gave 110% , the store bonuses were great even though the part-time-struggling-working-3-jobs-bc-no-one-pays-decent-single-parents I worked with weren't given anything. How can you enjoy a bonus when so many others are struggling? At least the store manager and I could always buy lunch for our associates, DT corp wouldn't If they even cared at all. Sorry I guess thats not a "pro". :/

    Cons

    Minimum store order requirements, stock room was piled to the ceiling bc I couldnot get approval for more hours, the stock room was a fire hazard 9/10 times, and to corporate you are not valued as a person- you are just a number. I gave my 6 week notice that I was leaving the company to give them enough time to replace me I got denied 2 weeks of paid vacation bc the vacation time was considered a bonus, not a right. DT is a multimillion $ company bc they don't care about people, they care about their $. God forgive them they know not what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Pray. Go to Church. Run your business like God is watching bc He is. $ is no good where you're going.

    Pros

    Seriously nothing. Unless you count the salary for the Store Manager, even then, it's not even worth it.

    Cons

    Everything! Horrible hours, very horrible minimum wage ONLY pay for part-time workers making it hard to keep workers, stressful situations that are ridiculous and absolutely no direction or support from anyone higher than a Store Manager.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Corporate: Treat your workers better or good people will stop applying and all you'll get is riff-raff!

  11. My view of Dollar Tree is that it was all good until holidays was up. People change, hours changed.
