I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time for more than a year

Pros

the only thing I would say is the customer base. You will have them for life

Cons

Nothing at all, more workload with a company that runs a 4-5% labor

rememeber..... this company pays 11% below the national average

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire yourself and hire someone with a brain. Ten years in retail management and this is by far the worst experience Ive ever had. Very unprofessional regional staff which is always negative

    I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The interaction with customers and my co-workers was awesome. I met a lot of great people. As long as you are at a store where the manager follows policy the training is awesome.

    Cons

    As an assistant manager you were never given enough help to do the work that needed to be done. You were always running register as a back up cashier but then still expected to work 6-8 hours worth of freight to the floor, do recovery etc. The store I was in was in need of massive repair but the landlord did minimal work. The roof leaked and the air conditioner barely worked. During the summer the chocolate was melting in the store. The work conditions were unbearable. Not a week went by that someone at the store did not call in "sick" to work or just did not show up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyday there needs to be double coverage between the hours of 10am and 6pm in almost every store. Not just during the fourth quarter "silly season" Your employees need to be paid more. You will find you will get better qualified employees who are more willing to work with less call offs and no shows if they are making more money.
