I have been working at Dollar Tree part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

People are really social and make the workplace fun to be at.

Cons

It's pretty hard to get a raise. I worked there for a few years,staring at $7.25 and a year or two later I was only at $7.45

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review employee work ethic and dedication and consider them for raises more often.

    I worked at Dollar Tree

    Pros

    There was more then enough down time, shifts were short, not many people on one shift so not really any one standing over your shoulder.

    Cons

    Pay was minimal, hours were few are far between, management and store procedures where sub par.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more budgeted hours, better procedure and better management screening.

    I worked at Dollar Tree full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great for store managers. $41K plus bonus (if you make bonus)

    Cons

    Extremely physically demanding. You are overrun with freight and will spend most of your day doing heavy lifting and stocking hundreds of cases of freight. You are expected to keep your store clean and set to planogram, which is nearly impossible. You will have to run your store with ridiculously low labor hours. You will have high turnover and frequent call-ins because your employees barely make over minimum wage and can't get more than 20 hours a week- results in unreliable employee base. You will be working all hours of day, night, weekends - minimum of 50 hours a week. Six day work week required during holiday season. You can't control the AC in your store, so it will always be hot. Unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay cashiers better. Provide better work-life balance for managers. Give more labor hours.
