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

    Pros

    Decent salary, overall good company, work is challenging and very fast paced.

    Cons

    Upper managment does not listen when you are telling thmthat you are not getting what you need out of training. Leave you haning once placed in a store with little to no communication or support. SPEH goalas are challening and cause store to be in a state of constant dishevelment. Policy is loose, and leaves to much room for interpration by DM and SM. So when your trained by one Ditrict and get placed in an other all the rules are different, leaving you feeling lost and confused again with NO support!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen with both ears to what your Managers are saying. Review base scheduling. Work can;t be done if you have no staff to do it. Better expose trainees to full demands of freight movment. If you have a Manager who trains and most of the Managers thst get placed quit, look to see why nad make changes to who is doing the training.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about working for dollar tree is you get to see the special buys before the customers.

    Cons

    The pay is crappy... especially considering the amount of work expected of you. There is no communication except when something is filtered through 5 different people. They expect you to live in your store, which leads to a horrible work/life balance. They transfer you around whenever they feel like it without even talking to you about it. You really can't trust upper management as far as you can throw them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a breakdown of communication from the top down. The people dictating how a store should run are not actually in a store dealing with the day to day.
