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

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.

    OK for a min wage job, slightly better if promoted to management

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Kingsport, TN

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

    Pros

    Good retail work environment, easy customer service, promotes within. Good temporary job.

    Cons

    No real benefits, low pay unless you are promoted to full time management,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better benefits, higher pay rates, provide raises more often following higher cost of living, and performance reviews. I was hired on as a part time manager and 6 months later the min wage went up but my pay did not I was now making only a few cents more than the cashiers. I also found out that the full time manager was making twice as much as I was doing the same job, therefore I resigned due to the min wage going up, and co worker pay descrepency. This was unacceptable.
