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

Pros

Store and assistant managers were great
Flexible schedule, can ask for days off
Short shifts

Cons

No raises, pay is terrible for the amount of work you are expected to perform
In most stores there are only two employees on any given shift
Part time workers get few hours and no benefits
Registers and work equipment is in terrible shape

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a part time worker I've never had problems getting my breaks and lunch hour, but I have noticed that the managers get stuck missing theirs half of the time. Since many Dollar Tree stores only have one Associate and one Manager working at a time, it often happens that the managers will need to work through their breaks in order to get through a rush or solve a customer's problem. They need to work out a better system.

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

    Pros

    I loved the customers the most, they were friendlier and more understanding when glitches would occure from the old registars, LOL. I would then say the actual company is next, very understanding when time off needed in an emergency or short notice. Corporate was wonderful with prompt attention to paycard issues down to ordering items that our customers wanted in stock in the store.

    Cons

    They allow D.M's to come into the store suspend someone until further notice without conducting a full investigation about the problem at hand. Then to top it off u keep callin to find out information on what's going on with ur job and no one can tell u anything. After a few months you decide to file for unemplyment and they want to object to paying cause u were told u were fired. Unemployment contacts you to have a phone interview so they investigate more than Dollar Tree. Well I won my case fortunately and I didn't do the horrible thing that they said I did. Oh, yea, I didn't steal 2 items totaling $2.14.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take the word of a person just because they are higher ranked than another individual. Treat all persons with respect and fairness equally.
