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

    Pros

    Easy to take days off. A good team of cashiers that are friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    You only get the bare minimum of hours work. The only way you can get hours is if they call you to cover a shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if there's 4 registers, there should be 4 cashiers at the same time, but they only work two cashiers.

    Pros

    I liked the laid-back feel. The actual work itself was not challenging. I found managers very understandable and likable.

    Cons

    While I had no problem with management, I know that quite a few employees were prone to quitting. I dislike that the closing shift cashiers are required to drive all the way across town to the bank to deposit the money every night. I never had a weekend off.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, Customers were excellent to help. Store Manager is there to help you develop your skills. Great first job for an assistant manager position. Bonuses for reaching sales and margin goals.

    Cons

    Biggest con is that the schedule is not consistent and may change during work week depending on truck loads. Hours are limited for scheduling, so this entails the managers do most of the stocking and upkeep of the store.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    It's an easy job and you can work yourself up pretty quick if you have a good work ethic.

    Cons

    MINIMUM WADGE. And managers in most of the stores always hate what there doing and bring people down and create a lazy staff who does not care. I have been in four different stores and on two states all the same ..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to judge new employes better, work on getting better pay

    Pros

    The company has alot of potential

    Cons

    Management is poorly trained overall. Some are really rude, and play a lot of favoritism. I was with the company 2years and the raises are only 15cents for part time workers. They are very limited on hours,but expect you to be able to come in at a moment's notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers, hire people worth good people skills.
