I worked at Dollar Tree part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Employer works with schedule which is a tremendous help. Flexible, fast paced, and there's always something different.

Cons

Sometimes the customers get a little to worked up over minor things. It's a dollar store, some people that come in act like they're royalty and you should kiss the ground they walk on. I've worked in many fields and the way some of these shoppers act is a disgrace to the human race.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Corporate needs to stop treating their employees (including the managers) like they are pawns. They are human, they want to see the company succeed as much as the "big guys" do. Treat them with respect.

    Pros

    Great starter position for people just entering into the workforce. This organization could provide a general outlook on what a retail position entails.

    Cons

    If you're someone who's been in the workforce, especially management positions, this isn't the organization for you. The store managers that I've encounter have had no leadership skills and conducted training of assistant managers and associates sub par.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your store managers properly so they can transfer that knowledge down to the core employees. Also, practice what you preach. If you promote an open door policy, have your store and district managers support the organization's decision.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and pleasant atmosphere

    Cons

    Stocking the shelves and lifting were difficult for me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with disabilities or lifting restrictions for just cashier work. I had to leave due to my inability to lift over 20lbs. and standing for over 3 hours. Adding stools for cashiers would also make the job easier on older or disabled workers.
