I worked at Dollar Tree part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

If you kiss butt you can break all rules and get away with it

Cons

Low pay, never good enough, no moving up. You start at minimum wage, get very few hours, and you will not get promoted,

    Okay at first, but later realized it's not as good as it seems.

    I worked at Dollar Tree part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Gain skills such as customer service and multi-tasking.
    - Good first job or for retirees seeking work.
    - Hire from within to advance to assistant manager positions.

    Cons

    - One supervisor and one cashier per shift is common when it gets busy.
    - Expected workload can be tedious and exhausting.
    - Some managers do not know how to manage employees.
    - Companies sometimes disregards federal safety and employee laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top-down management needs to treat everyone fairly and with respect. That is why you have such high turnover and problems in employee retention. Also, check up on the rules because employees are smart enough to know when something is not right. That is why you have so many lawsuits and people wanting to sue.

    I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and pretty laid back work environment make working around school and other job schedules much easier than some other jobs

    Cons

    Poor pay for the amount of work that employees are expected to complete.
    Poor direction from upper management.
    No support system from upper management especially when help in individual stores are needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management needs to understand that the people running their stores are people too, not robots there to execute their every wish
