    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mount Prospect, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Mount Prospect, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was very quick, and I initiated and directed most of the dialogue.. I took it upon myself because the manager that interviewed me was awkwardly quiet, and I guess that helped me because I lead the conversation to highlight my strengths instead of running into something that may have hurt my chances.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    This store requires you to apply at the store your applying for. Printed out the application at home then took it into the store. This particular store is very slow getting back. One person said there was a position available and went in next day and another said they were not accepting applications. Turned in an application anyway in case there were positions available in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I called one night to see if they had any openings for weekends or early mornings. I was given an interview the next morning. I got the job within 10 mins. The managers were very nice, and they were very upfront about the job. The only downside was that it seemed truncated due to it being during business hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Came in on my interview day. There was no interview just a slew of questions on if i could do the duties expected. Was immediately promoted to assistant manager right then and there(I had much previous experience but he didnt even care or ask about it, let alone look at my resume) Then I was expected to start work after my interview without any previous notice. gtfoh The turnover rate is tremendous. I left and was never seen there again simply because i enjoyed working in a warehouse over this place. Good Luck!

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Niles, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Niles, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a District Manager which was a great interview. BUT he sent my resume to a Store Manager without sending my contact number or my application which was online with their company website. He told me the store manager would be calling me for an interview, after I did not hear from her after almost a week I made contact with the Store Manager myself to let her know I was out of town on a family emergency which I was then told that there were plenty of positions open for Assistant Managers and to let her know when I returned. Also she had sent me an email from her husbands personal email account so it went in my junk mail and I would have never seen it unless I had called her. When I called her back the following Monday I was told to contact the District Manager that I interviewed with originally. He informed me that they had filled all the open positions. So they only hire friends and family members for this company because they are biased and failed to proceed in the hiring process as an equal opportunity employer!

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Dollar Tree (Joliet, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview with the HR manager. 2nd interview was on site with the AGM and GM. General questions and situations. Final interview with Director was lengthy but basic.
    You need to be a subject matter expert and it helps to be able to opine on former employers, hurdles, and specific steps you used to overcome the issue.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your level of interaction with your subordinate managers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    negotiation was very difficult. The GM presents the offer but can't negotiate. You spend a week going back and forth as he relays your concerns and requests with the Director.
