    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you like challenges this is the job.

    Cons

    Margins for the business model so low that there are not enough hours to give hourly associates to effectively get the job done. Therefore the salaried store manager based on a 45 hr work week must work 65+ hours to make up the difference.

    Advice to Management

    either shareholders need to take a few million less and give to the stores(or district) budgets or the price point needs to be increased so we can hire enough coverage to take care of freight, customer service, the abundant seasonal transitions, training, and the additional corporate responsibilities (paperwork) we must keep up with.

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

    Pros

    Great Autonomy for the most part at how you run your store within Corporate Payroll limits.

    Cons

    Like most retailers, not enough payroll hours to keep up with the daily operations.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to recognize the top performers and pay them accordingly and allow more payroll as the sales grow. I often had to cut hours to help offset low sales at other stores in my district.
