Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Manassas, VA
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Manassas, VA

I have been working at Dollar Tree full-time (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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees when we talk to you and tell you whats going on,If it were not for your employess You would not be in business treat us as you would want to be treated.When we call you with a problem donot brush us off,And if you say you are going to do something set an example and do it quit with excuses. You donot want them from us.

    Pros

    Always busy with work around the store
    Part-time positions are relatively stress-free

    Cons

    Management plays favorites
    Will fire employees with little provocation and no warning
    Minimum wage unless you're management, but even then it's only about $9
    Rules not strictly enforced, harassment complaints ignored
